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
“He consoles us in all our afflictions and thereby enables us to console others in their tribulations” (2 Corinthians 1:4).
Reflection: Terri Schiavo’s family now assists other families who face tragedies similar to their own, and is calling for laws in various states to protect the disabled from being dehydrated to death as Terri was. Rather than being absorbed in bitterness or despair, this family has accepted from the Lord their mission to be a voice for the voiceless. Their book, “A Life that Matters,” is their personal account of what happened to Terri.
Prayer: As I battle the culture of death, Lord, may I receive and share your consolation. Amen.
