Today’s Pro-Life Reflection: They lead my people astray…

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

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

“They lead my people astray, saying, ‘Peace,’ when there is no peace, and because, when a flimsy wall is built, they cover it with whitewash” (Ezekiel 13:10).

Reflection: Late-term abortionist George Tiller tells couples who come to him to abort, “The hard part is saying goodbye to the hopes, dreams and relationships that you have with your baby.” He explains that patients may speak directly to their baby, and even has a chaplain who conducts spiritual services and baptisms for the children who are killed.

Prayer: Lord, have mercy. Move to repentance those who misuse the faith of others to justify wrongdoing, and heal all those who turn to You. Amen.

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: Reach down from heaven

Friday, June 26th, 2015

seconds

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

“What strength do I have, that I should still hope? What prospects, that I should be patient?” (Job 6:11) 

Reflection: Studies have shown that those who aborted their first pregnancy were four times more likely to engage in subsequent drug or alcohol abuse than those who never had an abortion. Sometimes this behavior is aimed at dulling the pain abortion brings, or it is done because the mother feels unworthy of living any more, unworthy of being protected, safe, and healthy.

Prayer: Lord, I pray today for those who are in pain and who feel unworthy of life. Reach down from heaven, heal their spirits, and give them new hope. Amen.

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: Reveal to Our World its Sin and its Salvation

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

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

“And when he comes, he will prove the world wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment” – John 16:8 

Reflection: Here is the reaction of a ‘pro-choice’ person upon seeing what abortion is:  “I have looked at the pictures on this site on aborted babies and I started to cry. I have always believed in freedom of choice but after seeing this, I have to say this is just murder.”

Prayer: Lord, as you promised, your Holy Spirit teaches us about you, and helps us to see the full truth about what is right and wrong. May that Spirit reveal to our world its sin and its salvation. Amen.

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: God intended it for good to accomplish

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

1512465_649897095087935_8556028211146689056_n

This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“God intended it for good to accomplish … the saving of many lives” (Genesis 50:20). 

Reflection: One of the simplest ways to stop abortions is to go to the facilities where the abortions happen and talk to the women who are walking in. This is called “sidewalk counseling.” It is legal in every state, and has saved countless lives. Training is available from pro-life organizations.

Prayer: Lord, I pray today for all sidewalk counselors who are pleading for the lives of the unborn. Give them grace and wisdom, patience and perseverance. Save many lives and souls through their loving intervention, and call many others to join their ranks. Amen.

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: Give them patience and trust in you

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

tumblr_m8vk5o8WSM1qbhp9xo1_1280

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

“When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him Moses” (Exodus 2:10). 

Reflection: Many couples are eager to adopt children, but unable to do so, either because of burdensome laws, or because the children have been killed by abortion. The pro-life movement promotes adoption; the pro-abortion movement does everything it can to discourage it. After all, for them, every adoption is lost business in the killing centers.

Prayer: Lord, look with love on all those who seek to adopt a child. Bless them for their generous desire to give a child a loving home. Give them patience and trust in you. Amen.

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: Bloodshed follows bloodshed

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

10450179_607260812740831_998795284417704496_n

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

“Bloodshed follows bloodshed” (Hosea 4:2).

Reflection: If a mother has the right to choose to kill her innocent, unwanted child, why doesn’t the child have the right to kill her innocent, unwanted mother? The deadly “logic” of putting choice above life endangers everyone. The “right to die” movement has nothing to do with people wanting to die. It has everything to do with people wanting to kill others whom they believe would be better off dead.

Prayer: Lord, I affirm today the primacy of life over choice. May every choice be guided and guarded by the immeasurable value of life. Amen.

Today’s Pro-Life Reflection: Your light must shine so that it can be seen by others.

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

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

“Your light must shine so that it can be seen by others” (Matthew 5:16).

Reflection: A preacher once wrote that there is no such thing as secret discipleship. Either the discipleship will destroy the secrecy, or the secrecy will destroy the discipleship. That’s why being pro-life cannot just be a personal, private conviction. If it’s in our heart, it needs to be on our lips and in our actions.

Prayer: Praise to You, Lord God, for You open my mouth in worship and in witness; You reveal my faith through my actions. May I never try to be a secret disciple, but rather be proud to be known as one of Yours. Amen.

Fr. Pavone: Iowa RU-486 ruling is a step backwards

Friday, June 19th, 2015

PriestsForLife

NEW YORK –Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding the Iowa Supreme Court decision that a ban on web cam abortions is unconstitutional.

 

“Iowa is taking a dangerous step backward today with this ruling from its state Supreme Court. RU-486 abortions have high rates of complications and have caused death. But even aside from that, by what illusion do judges think it is unconstitutional to require a patient and her doctor to be in the same room for assessment prior to dispensing drugs?”

 

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.

Today’s Pro-life Reflections: Teach us to value creation

Friday, June 19th, 2015

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

“Gaze upon the birds…Are you not of far greater value than they?” (Matthew 6:26). 

Reflection: Jesus makes it clear that human life is worth more than other creatures. In Florida you can see signs on the beach that say, “Do not touch the sea turtles or their eggs. They are protected by local, state, and federal law.” If we do not have the right to choose to smash the egg of a sea turtle, why do we have the right to choose to smash a baby?

Prayer: Lord, we worship you as the source of everything that is. Teach us to value creation, and to value humanity even more. Amen.

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: God Who Overcomes Despair

Thursday, June 18th, 2015

desperation

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

“If only my anguish could be weighed …It would surely outweigh the sand of the seas” (Job 6:2-3). 

Reflection: Those who have had abortions are more likely to be tempted to suicide. The mother may see death as the only way of being reunited with her child, and escaping the daily pain that the abortion brings. “I deprived my child of life,” she thinks, “and therefore I don’t deserve my own.”

Prayer: Lord, you are the God who overcomes despair, and whose mighty hand keeps us on the right path. Send your Spirit upon all who are tempted to suicide, and refresh them with new hope. Amen.
