John Paul the Great on the Sanctity of Life #1

Memorial of St. Augustine of Canterbury

The life which God gives man is quite different from the life of all other living creatures, inasmuch as man... is a manifestation of God in the world, a sign of his presence, a trace of his glory. ... Man has been given a sublime identity, based on the intimate bond which unites him to his Creator: in man there shines forth a reflection of God himself. ... The life which God offers to man is a gift by which God shares something of himself with his creature.
Evangelium Vitae
