This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” (Matthew 28:18).
Reflection: What if a church said that as part of its worship service it would sacrifice a little child on the altar? Certainly the State would step in to stop that, and few people would regard that as an infringement of the separation of Church and State. Neither is it an infringement when the Church tells the state it cannot authorize the killing of children by abortion.
Prayer: O God, you are Lord of both Church and State. Grant that neither infringe upon the human rights of your people. Amen.
