For those of us who are motivated by a respect for life as created in the image and Likeness of God our Creator, we offer this reflection:
Creator God, whose crowning glory is the creation of man in your image and likeness, we ask that you bless our efforts to foster a respect for that life from creation until natural death in our profession of caring. Grant that we may be successful in protecting that life and in our goal to create a Culture of Life in all. -Submitted by Marianne Linane, RN, MS, MA
