“Although faith provides special light and strength, this question arises in every human conscience which seeks the truth and which cares about the future of humanity” – EV 101 

Reflection: Jesus, the Bible, and the Church teach that stealing is wrong. Therefore, do the laws that prohibit stealing impose a religious belief on the rest of us? Of course not. But some argue that a law protecting the unborn would impose religion. They think freedom of religion should allow child-killing.

Prayer: Lord, you have blessed human conscience with the ability to perceive that killing children is wrong. Increase the moral strength of your people, that this evil may end. Amen.

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

“Suddenly, there were two men talking with him, Moses and Elijah” (Luke 9:30).

Reflection: Jesus was transfigured; the glory of his divinity shone through his humanity, which reminds us that humanity always expresses the image of God. Here, Moses and Elijah converse with Jesus about his upcoming death, which will itself, conquer death. The Transfiguration was meant to remind the apostles that death would not have the last word.

Prayer: Jesus, may your transfiguration strengthen all of us in the face.
