The CPLO hosted a Mass at St Mary’s Cathedral to mark the coming into law of the Termination of Pregnancy Act in 1997. The Director of the CPLO Fr Peter-John Pearson referred to David’s speech to Solomon, in the Bible, which was the reading for the day. David instructed Solomon to stand by his principles, not to make expedient decisions, to repent of that which is wrong and have a heart of hope. He encouraged the congregation to have a similar paradigm in confronting policies and practices that undermine life.
