Today’s Pro-Life Reflection

boy sand

These reflections are taken from the book “Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day” by Fr. Frank Pavone which is available for purchase at:

“They stood still, their faces filled with sadness.” (Luke 24:16)

Reflection: On the first Easter Sunday afternoon, the two disciples walking on the road to Emmaus failed to recognize Jesus when he started walking with them. Perhaps it was because they were looking downcast. Often we are too absorbed in our own disappointment to see that hope is right in front of us. For many who are pregnant, despair and fear can lead to the violence of abortion – unless we intervene and show that the Lord is walking with us.

Prayer: Lord, I pray for all whose sadness tempts them to abortion. Give me the opportunity to speak, and to reveal your presence. Amen!

    Hi all, Just looking at the bigger picture. There have been about 55,000,000 abortions in the united states alone since 1973, and with the united states being only about 5% of the population of the world, there would be a grand total of about 1,000,000,000, yes billion, abortions in the world since that unholy error was made in 1973 “Roe vs Wade”.
    In late 1939, My own Mother was on the abortion table getting rid of me.
    Just as the Doctor was doing his deadly deed, my mothers sister Margret came running in and screamed to her to stop. She yelled out “Jean”, don’t do it, that child will take care of you in your old age!
    Well, the Doctor stopped, and here I am today, with a wonderful wife of forty eight years, four great children, eight Grand Children, and a blessing of a Hot dog named Margret Mary, after my Aunt Margret, Thank you Lord!
    Over the many years, I’ve had many jobs and meet many people in Church,Real Estate, and the Automobile business, and have touched thousands of people and acquaintances in many ways, and yes, out of 6 children, I was her favorite, and helped her till she went home to our Lord at the ripe old age of ninety two! Well, thats only one little story out of a Billion.
    If woman only knew what one new life can mean in this world…….Many Blessings to All, Bob Amodeo+++
