March Virtue: Respect Recognizing the dignity of all people
Our society often bases a person's value on their appearance or abilities. But that is not how God sees us. In reality, what we are is much more important than what we can do. Each one of us is created in the image and likeness of God, and we are unique and unrepeatable gifts of His love. God loves us so much that He sent His Son Jesus to die for us, that we might live forever with Him in heaven.
When we look at people from this perspective, we can't help but respect them. When we see the very poorest, the weakest, or those who think they have no worth, we know that God treasures them individually, and that we are called to meet one another again in heaven. We cannot degrade, harm, manipulate, or take any human life for granted. Instead, the Gospel call us to have a deep respect for all people, including people of different ages, cultures, ideas, and abilities.
