“Remember, of these parents you were born; what can you give them for all they gave you?” (Sirach 7:28)
Reflection: Some fathers are now beginning to claim the same kind of “right” to walk away from their parental responsibilities as mothers are able to do by abortion. They ask, if we can’t force the mother to be a mother, why should we force the father to be a father? The bitter fruits of Roe v Wade continue to unfold.
Prayer: Lord, instill in all fathers and mothers a deep sense of responsibility for their children, born and unborn. Give them joy in giving of themselves to their children. Amen.
