This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Jesus spoke to men a message of peace, and taught us to live as brothers. His message took form in the vision of our fathers as they fashioned a nation where men might live as one. This message lives on in our midst as a task for men today and a promise for tomorrow. We thank you, Father, for your blessings in the past, and for all that with your help we must yet achieve” (Preface, Liturgy for Independence Day)
Reflection: The pro-life work we do advances the purpose of today’s celebration: liberty and justice for all.
Prayer: Lord, grant the blessings of liberty to our unborn brothers and sisters. Amen.
