This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org.
“All generations will call me blessed” (Luke 1:48).
Reflection: Mary’s Assumption, which we celebrate tomorrow, is a sign that God ultimately saves us – and will raise us – in body and in soul. Some who justify abortion say they don’t know if the child has a soul. But that’s beside the point. What matters is that the child has a body, and when we know that abortion destroys the body, we have all the information we need to know it’s wrong.
Prayer: Mary, Mother of Life, I rejoice in your Assumption, and in the hope to which it points, that we will all enjoy eternal freedom from death. Amen!
