“When you have a reception, invite beggars and the crippled, the lame and the blind. You should be pleased that they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid in the resurrection of the just.” – Lk. 14:13-14
Reflection: Jesus calls us to the purest form of love, that is, love of those who cannot repay us. The unborn children, whose lives we seek to protect, cannot repay us and do not even know we are fighting for them. Pro-life work is motivated by pure love.
Prayer: Lord, increase my love for the children in the womb, who cannot acknowledge or repay me. May you be my only reward.
