These reflections are taken from the book “Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day” by Fr. Frank Pavone which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“An angel of the Lord descended from heaven, came and rolled back the stone, and sat upon it.” (Matthew 28:2)
Reflection: The stone is what sealed human beings in the grave. By sitting on it, the angel says that death is conquered – not only Jesus’ death, but all death. The stone is not going to roll back; it cannot any longer hold humanity captive to the grave. Our destiny is now the heights of heaven.
Prayer: Alleluia! The Kingdom of death has been overturned! The power of abortion, euthanasia, and other evils has already been defeated! Lord, your power is greater than death. May Easter give me confidence to be a witness to Life!
