This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org.
“You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons” (1 Corinthians 10:21).
Reflection: Some public officials who refuse to oppose child-killing continue to receive Holy Communion. But communion means union. To desire union with Jesus is to desire union with life, and to be in communion with his teachings means to accept them. When we come to Jesus, we are the ones who have to change to be like him.
Prayer: Lord, give us the strength to be in union with you, and therefore to reject evil practices. As you come to us, change us to be like you. Amen.
