As We Prepare for Lent

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012





Tomorrow the season of Lent begins. By our penance, we say no to ourselves and yes to God and others. This reverses the power of sin, by which we say yes to ourselves and no to God and others.

A perfect Lenten practice is to speak up even more for unborn children. Lent calls us to greater love and less selfishness. When we defend the unborn, we defend people who cannot thank us, and who don’t even know we are defending them. This makes our efforts even more sacrificial and selfless. At times, we will suffer ridicule from others for our pro-life stand. To sacrifice our comfort, our pride, or our popularity is a beautiful Lenten sacrifice that brings us closer to the Lord, and brings the unborn closer to safety.

We Will Be Repaid at the Resurrection of the Just

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012





Jesus said, “When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. You should be happy that they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”

This command to love and serve those who cannot repay us strengthens our resolve to love and serve the unborn children, who are in danger of being killed by abortion. They cannot know right now that we are helping them and speaking up for them. They cannot repay us. These are the ones we should love and serve above all.
