Maria Madise, international director at the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC), is convinced that purity “is one of the most important and also one of the most beautiful themes we have chosen for the Rome Life Forum in its seven-year history.”

Taking place in Rome on May 20-21, the event will bring together speakers and participants from a number of countries ahead of the March for Life in the Eternal City on May 23.

Linus Clovis, spiritual director of the Population Research Institute and Family Life International.  ….
