Today’s Pro-Life Reflection

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

 

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

“Jesus holds a perpetual priesthood…he has the full power to save those who approach God through him, since he lives forever to intercede for them” (Hebrews 7:24-25).

Reflection: In the heights of heaven, where he sits at the right hand of the Father, what does Jesus do? Scripture tells us that, sharing our human nature, he constantly intercedes for us. He presents to the Father the dignity of our humanity, that it may be filled with the life of God.

Prayer: Lord, give us confidence that we can always approach you, from the darkness of this valley of death, as you intercede, in your humanity, for ours. Amen.

“To the Father and to his mercy you can with sure hope entrust your child” (John Paul II to those who have had abortions, The Gospel of Life, n.99).

Reflection: Baptism is the ordinary way to be born into God’s grace. But for those killed without baptism, we can still have sure hope. St Paul wrote that God wants all to be saved. Let us entrust these children to the Lord, who does not forget anyone that He creates, even when we do.

Prayer: Father, to you we commend the souls of all children killed by abortion. Bring them to heaven, and bring us your comfort. Amen.

“So now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began” (John 17:5).

Reflection: What was different about Jesus’ glory after he ascended to heaven than when he was in heaven before coming to earth? Now, he is in heaven in a human body and soul – the same human nature that you and I share. The Ascension teaches the world the meaning and destiny of human life: We are called to be in the heights of heaven.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, you took our humanity to the heights of heaven. When that same humanity is being thrown in the garbage, may we respond. Amen.
