“The Lord sustains the poor, but humbles the wicked in the dust” (Psalm 147:6)

Reflection: German Cardinal Clemens von Galen became famous for sermons he preached in 1941 against the Nazi euthanasia program. He declared, “These numerous cases of unexpected death in the case of the insane are not natural, but often deliberately caused, and result from the belief that it is lawful to take away life which is unworthy of being lived… Once admit the right to kill unproductive persons… then none of us can be sure of his life.”

Prayer: Inspire your preachers, Lord, with the courage we see in Cardinal von Galen. Amen!

“He consoles us in all our afflictions and thereby enables us to console others in their tribulations” (2 Corinthians 1:4).

Reflection: Terri Schiavo’s family now assists other families who face tragedies similar to their own, and is calling for laws in various states to protect the disables from being dehydrates to death as Terri was. Rather than being absorbed in bitterness or despair, this family has accepted from the Lord their mission to be a voice for the voiceless. Their book, “A Life that Matters,” is their personal account of what happened to Terri.

Prayer: As I battle the culture of death, Lord, may I receive and share your consolation. Amen.
