“If we allow a mother to kill her own child, how can we tell people not to kill each other?” – Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Reflection: Mother Teresa died on this day in 1997. She saw in each person – no matter how sick or depraved –the image of God. She spoke boldly to those in power about the evil of abortion. In her Nobel Peace Prize lecture, she said that the greatest destroyer of peace is abortion. She led women by the arm away from abortion clinics and toward alternatives. Let us honor her by imitating her.
Prayer: Mother Teresa, pray for us, that we may defend life as you did. Amen.
