The Dignity of the Human Person

The Dignity of the Human Person


'Human person are willed by God; they are imprinted with God's image.  Their dignity does not come from the work they do, but from the persons they are.'  Saint Pope John Paul II.


God made each one of us.  This makes us incredibly special.  It doesn't matter who we are, our friends, what we own, or what we look like.  What matters is that we are unique because we are God's children.  This means we must treat others respectfully and fairly because God made us all.
