Jesus Christ is Risen from the dead! The Church today, and for the next 50 days, continues to celebrate Easter and proclaim to the world that death has been conquered.
Although death in its various forms continues to manifest itself in our world, it has been robbed of its power; it no longer has the final word in the human story. Because of Christ’s Resurrection, our final destiny is not the grave, but the skies.
This means that the power of abortion, which takes more life than anything else, has also been broken. The pro-life movement does not simply work for victory; we work from victory. Victory is our starting point. We joyfully proclaim to the world that Christ is Risen, and that for this reason, we must choose life.
