This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“After sending them all outside, he …entered the room where the child was…and said to her…’Little girl, I say to you, arise!’” (Mark 5:40-41).
Reflection: When a fire is reported, the firemen do not sit around the fire house and have a prayer service. They go to where the fire is. When a priest gets a sick call, he goes to the bedside of the sick person. The same is true with abortion. We are called to show up at the places where the killing occurs. This expresses solidarity with them in their hour of greatest need.
Prayer: Enable Your people, O Lord, to give each other the gift of presence. Amen
