“On seeing what had taken place, the centurion praised God and said, ‘Surely, this man was innocent.’” (Luke 23:47)
Reflection: When Jesus died on the cross, the Centurion standing next to him repented of participating in his crucifixion. Many who used to perform abortions have now also repented, and they say, “Surely, these were innocent lives, and we are sorry.” They have formed a group called the Society of Centurions. They seek God’s healing and invite other abortionists to stop the killing.
Prayer: Lord, I pray today for the Centurions. Now that they have stopped killing children, let them find your healing and peace. Amen.
