This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org.
“For see what earnestness this godly sorrow has produced for you…what indignation…what desire to see justice done” (2 Corinthians 7:11).
Reflection: Only when we have a deep passion for justice can we make the sacrifices needed to build a Culture of Life. Christians believe in righteous anger, which the Lord and his saints exhibited in the face of evil. We are angry at what the culture of death does each day. We ask the Holy Spirit not to extinguish our anger but rather to channel it into a wholesome, energized passion which sustains us in the task at hand.
Prayer: Give me righteous anger, Lord, purified by your Spirit. Amen.
