This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“O Israel, put your hope in the Lord, both now and forevermore” (Psalm 131:3).
Reflection: The month of November is dedicated in a particular way to praying for the dead. This includes children who died before birth. These children did not have the opportunity to be baptized; the Church teaches, however, that we can hope for their salvation, and that we can entrust them with confidence to the mercy of God.
Prayer: Lord, you love these aborted children even more than we do, and you provide in mysterious ways for them to take hold of eternal life in Christ. We entrust them to you and we pray that the killing may stop. Amen.
