Today’s Pro-Life Reflection

This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“Deliver us from the evil one” (Matthew 6:13).

Reflection: The evil of September 11, 2001 was not simply that lives were lost, but that some human beings had a blatant contempt for the right of other human beings to live. The same contempt for human life is found in every abortion clinic. What moral difference does it make if a victim is five feet tall or five inches tall, or if the instrument of death is an airplane or surgical forceps? The evil we fight is a reflection of the evil we do.

Prayer: Lord, on this sad anniversary, I resolve to defend all life, whatever threatens it. Amen.

baptize

This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“She and her whole household had been baptized” (Acts 16:15).

Reflection: When we baptize a baby, it proves that God chooses us before we choose him. Moreover, all the members of the Church extend their hearts and arms in welcome of that new life. Baptism shows that we are always called to give a welcoming “Yes” to life, and never the harsh “no” of abortion. The so-called “prochoice” message is that we choose whom we will care for. Baptism teaches us that we are responsible for those whom God has chosen first.

Prayer: Lord, I welcome each and every person you have chosen to create. May they share your life abundantly. Amen.

This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“The human person is the measure of the dignity of work” — Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church

Reflection: The Church teaches that work has its final goal in the human person. In other words, people are not to be considered as just cogs in a wheel of productivity. Work exists for people, not the other way around. It is an expression of the person and builds up his or her dignity. This is a key conviction in a Culture of Life.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Amen.
