This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days….They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain.” (Isaiah 65: 20, 25)
Reflection: Christ’s coming heralds a new harmony in all of nature, including between mother and child. Advent leads us to the Silent Night when the whole world finds joy in his birth, a joy no longer threatened by violence.
Prayer: Lord, may your birth shed protection on all about to be born, and as we work to end abortion, may we “wait in joyful hope for the coming of Our Savior, Jesus Christ.” Amen.
