Two millenniums ago, Baby Jesus was born. There was no room for Him, and many hardened hearts even tried to kill Him. Nowadays, we want to make room for Him, welcoming every baby, every life.
Today we propose you a Pro-Life Christmas Challenge:one little action to perform each day from Dec. 1st to Dec. 25th, preparing our hearts for Christmas, while building up and nurturing a culture of life.
