This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“By his Incarnation the Son of God has united himself in some fashion with every person” (Vatican II, Gaudium et Spes, n.22).
Reflection: God has joined all humanity to himself in Christ. There is only one human nature, shared by all human beings born and unborn, healthy and sick, rich and poor, wanted and unwanted. Every one of these human beings is joined to God through the Incarnation, which means our humanity has a sacred value even greater than it received just by being created.
Prayer: Thank you, Lord Jesus, for taking upon yourself our human nature, and for uniting our human family in yourself. Amen.
