This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you forever, the Spirit of Truth” (John 14:16-17).
Reflection: Our Lord refereed to the Holy Spirit as another advocate, the first one being Jesus (1 Jn. 2:1) because we cannot save ourselves, we need an advocate to speak up on our behalf and plead for our forgiveness and salvation. What, then. Does the Holy Spirit do when he comes to them? He makes us advocates for the helpless!
Prayer: Come, O Spirit Advocate. Give speech to my tongue, to always defend vulnerable human lives! Amen.
