This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org.
“The Mighty One has done great things for me” (Luke 1:49)
Reflection: Because of her unique role as his mother, Mary received from Jesus a full share, body and soul, in his victory over death. In the human family, which God decided to join, there can be no closer bond than mother and child. They belong together; their destinies are intertwined. That is one of the central messages of the pro-life movement. To love and care for a mother necessarily means protecting, loving, and caring for her child.
Prayer: Blessed Virgin Mother, on this day of joy we honor you. Pray for us, and for the victory of life! Amen!
