“If we endure, we shall also reign with him.” (2 Timothy 2:12)
Reflection: In Lent, the Church enters more deeply into meditation on the suffering, death, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus. He endured this in order to redeem human life. Life was sacred because he made it, and by His Passion and resurrection it is even more sacred because it is now raised to the heights of heaven, to reign with Him.
Prayer: Lord, I am filled with wonder at your love for human life. Everyone, born and unborn, is called to reign with you! May our laws and practices treat human life accordingly, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
