“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” — Matthew 5:4
Reflection: We are blessed, indeed, if we mourn over our sins, and over the evils in the world, like the daily killing of children by abortion. When is the last time we shed tears over the shedding of blood, and wept for the lives of these babies killed and moms and dads wounded? Let us pray for the gift of those tears!
Prayer: Lord, give me a broken heart over abortion. Give me the grace to do my part in ending this evil. And give me comfort, as you bring justice to the earth. Amen.
