There are many proofs for the existence of God. One way to discover God is in the mystery and beauty of the human person. In the Catechism of the Catholic Church it states in section II. Ways of Coming to Know God:

“The human person: with his openness to truth and beauty, his sense of moral goodness, his freedom and the voice of his conscience, with his longings for the infinite and for happiness, man questions himself about God’s existence. In all this he discerns signs of his spiritual soul. The soul, the ‘seed of eternity we bear in ourselves, irreducible to the merely material’ can have its origin only in God.” 33

By proclaiming the Gospel of Life – standing up for the dignity of every human life – we also bring others closer to God. Here are some beautiful quotes from section #84 in Evangelium vitae .

“Indeed, ‘despite its hardships, its hidden mysteries, its suffering and its inevitable frailty, this mortal life is a most beautiful thing, a marvel ever new and moving, an event worthy of being exalted in joy and glory‘.”

“Moreover, man and his life appear to us not only as one of the greatest marvels of creation: for God has granted to man a dignity which is near to divine (Ps 8:5-6).”

“In every child which is born and in every person who lives or dies we see the image of God’s glory. We celebrate this glory in every human being, a sign of the living God, an icon of Jesus Christ.”
