 Ratoath ICA: Meet on the first Tuesday of the month in Ratoath Community Centre at 8.00pm. Come along see what we are up to.
At times we see an obsession with denying any pre-eminence  to the human person; more zeal is shown in protecting other species than in defending the dignity which all human beings share in equal measure... it is clearly inconsistent to combat trafficking in endangered species while remaining completely indifferent to human trafficking, unconcerned about the poor, or undertaking to destroy another human being deemed unwanted... concern for the environment thus needs to be joined to a sincere love for our fellow human being and an unwavering commitment to resolve the problems of society.
