I have called you by name

"I have called you by name, you are mine," the Lord says (Isaiah 43:1)

A wall full of names of those young Americans who died during the war in Viet Nam.

Why does it move us?

Because it reminds us that these are real people and each one is uniquely formed by God. They are not mere statistics. They are as real and as human as you or I. Or your brother or sister or son or daughter.

Father Frank Pavone has given names to the children who were aborted whose remains were found at the Gosnell "House of Horrors".
