This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Social injustices stood in tension to the high ideals the Founders articulated” (Living the Gospel of Life, 14).
Reflection: The founding fathers of our nation were religious men, many of whom studied in seminaries and Bible schools. They spoke openly of Jesus, even in official government meetings. They did not see religion as an aspect of life that one could freely ignore. For decades now, our courts have been removing religion and morality from public life, and we see the price we have paid in tens of millions of aborted children.
Prayer: Bless our nation, Lord, that it may always acknowledge you publicly as the foundation of our rights and freedom. Amen.
