This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us” (Psalm 103:12).
Reflection: Today is the Feast of St. Faustina, to whom Jesus revealed the wonders of divine mercy. The Chaplet of Divine Mercy was given to her especially because of the sin of abortion. God revealed to her that because of this evil, the world needs His mercy more than ever. He even permitted St. Faustina to suffer special pains, representing the pain of abortion.
Prayer: For the sake of his sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world! Amen!
