This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“War broke out in heaven, with Michael and his angels in combat against the dragon” (Revelation 12:7).
Reflection: The Archangel Michael led the faithful angels in the battle that broke out in heaven when Lucifer rebelled. The devil and his followers thought they could be like God by their own choice. But Michael’s name means “Who is like God?” Only God’s choice can exalt us to his throne. The battle between pro-life and pro-choice is the same battle. Some think their own choice, rather than God, that determines right and wrong.
Prayer: Sovereign Lord, may all acknowledge that you alone are God, and that your choice, not our own, exalts us. Amen.
