“Do you reject Satan? And all his empty promises?” (Sacramentary, Renewal of Baptismal Promises)
Reflection: Lent is a time to pray for the catechumens of the Church, who are preparing to be baptized at Easter. When they are baptized at the Easter vigil, the rest of us will renew the vows of our baptism. In these vows, we reject the empty promises of the devil.One of those empty promises is abortion. How easily people are deceived that the choice of death somehow solves a problem!
Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for the power of baptism in my life, by which I am able to affirm life each day against the power of death!
