“Dear children, keep away from idols” (1 John 5:21).
Reflection: Ginette Paris wrote a book called “The Sacrament of Abortion.” She claims that abortion is a sacred ritual sacrifice to the goddess Artemis. As patroness of animals and of hunters, Artemis represents the ability to both protect and kill. The so-called right to abortion means that the mother can give either life or death to her child.
Prayer: Lord, free your people from the deception of idolatry, witchcraft, and false worship, which threaten not only our relationship with you, but the lives of others. Preserve us in true worship and effective justice. Amen.
