Love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord. – Lev 19:18
Reflection: The command “Love your neighbor” does not have distinctions, limitations, or exclusions. It includes our unborn neighbor.
And to love them “as yourself” does not simply mean to love them “to the degree” that you love yourself; it means first to recognize them as a person like yourself.
Prayer: Let Your command of love, O Lord, free us all from the prejudices that distract us. Open our eyes to see every human person as our neighbor and act accordingly.
