This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God” (Rom. 8:16).
Reflection: The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, enables us to understand created realities, their value, and their relationship to the Creator and to our own happiness. We can therefore ask the Holy Spirit to give us an understanding of the value of the human person. The Spirit enables us to cry, “Abba! Father!” Abortion, on the other hand, sees the human person as a disposable object.
Prayer: How wonderful are your works, O Lord. Through your eternal Spirit, you enable me to understand those works as coming from your hand. I Praise you forever! Amen!
