This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“One of the soldiers thrust a lance into his side, and immediately a flow of blood and water came forth” (John 19:34).
Reflection: We worship Jesus’ heart. It is the core of the pro-life movement, which is a movement of self-sacrificing love. Nothing can stop the love of the Heart of Jesus, which is the meaning of the flame we see. This love is met by rejection and hatred, symbolized by the wound in the heart.
Prayer: Lord, when my love for the unborn is met with misunderstanding, ridicule, and persecution , fill my heart with Yours, that I may continue to love those who cannot love me back. Amen.
