Every human being, at every stage and condition, is willed and loved by God.
For this reason, every human life is sacred.
To deprive someone of life is a grave wrong and a grave dishonor to God.
Because we are created in the image of God, who is Love, our identity and our vocation is to love.
Pope Benedict has called this "the key to our entire existence."

The Blessed Margaret of Castello Home for Crisis Pregnancies, founded in 1986, is the longest continually active crisis pregnancy home in the Delaware Valley. It is a residential home for pregnant women offering support, guidance, and physical security in a loving atmosphere, throughout a woman’s pregnancy. Our services are free of charge.
This is an opportunity for students to pray especially for an unborn child who may be in danger of being aborted by "spiritually adopting" this baby for nine months. Students pray for this baby daily that he or she will be carried to term and experience the fullness of life. They also pray for guidance for the baby's parents and for entire Church community that we may continue to provide the care and services to assist children and their parents.
Although the identity of the unborn baby is not known to the "spiritual parents," God knows who the child is. Students name the baby in order to stay focused on the reality that their prayers are being heard by God and are helping to save a particular baby.
At the end of the nine months, students conduct a "baby shower" to celebrate the birth of their new baby. A collection of donated baby items is taken up and the items are given to a local pregnancy center, mothers' home, or a needy family within the community.
