This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the world” Matthew 28:20.
Reflection: Abortion leads to isolation, despair, and a feeling of being abandoned by everyone. The Church, on the other hand, brings the assurance of Jesus: “I am with you.” The People of God, while rejecting abortion, embrace with love those who have had abortions, and lead them to the healing mercy of Christ.
Prayer: Lord, I pray for every person who feels alone and abandoned today, in the dark shadows of the abortion they have committed. Reach into that darkness, and enable your people to bring the light of Jesus’ presence to wounded hearts. Amen.
