Today, the Church throughout the world celebrates the Feast of the Annunciation. This solemnity marks the moment when God Himself became an unborn child. At that moment He also began redeeming the unborn child — and all of us who once were unborn children. Never can the unborn be considered too small to be significant or to possess rights, for God Himself was that small.
In many countries, today’s Feast is observed as a special day honored in celebration of Life, even by decree of the government. At www.priestsforlife.org, you will find special prayers you can use in your homes and Churches as you observe this feast.
Let us all renew our commitment to the lives of the unborn, and to Jesus, whose image is in each one of them.
