Pro-Life Meditations on the "Glorious Mysteries" of the Rosary
By Fr. Frank
Christ is Risen! By his Resurrection, He has destroyed the power of death,
and therefore the power of abortion. The outcome of the battle for Life has
already been decided: Life is victorious! Let us pray that all prolifers will
spread this victory to every segment of our society.
By ascending to the Father's throne, Christ takes our human nature, given to
us in the womb, to the heights of heaven. He shows us that human beings are made
to be raised to heaven, not thrown in the garbage. Let us pray that the world
may learn this truth and reject abortion.
The Descent of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the Advocate: He pleads our cause, for we cannot save
ourselves. We pray that He will make us advocates for the babies, who cannot
speak or write or vote or protest or even pray.
The Blessed Virgin Mary was taken body and soul into heaven because she is
the Mother of God. Mother and child are united. The Assumption reminds us that
they belong together. We pray that society will see that it cannot love women
while killing their children, and cannot save children without helping their
mothers. We pray that people will be touched by the pro-life question, "Why
can't we love them both?"
Mary is the Queen of the Universe. The Church teaches that she is the
greatest creature, second only to God Himself. The Church defends the dignity of
women. We pray that people will understand that to be pro-life means to be
pro-woman, and that to be pro-woman demands that we be pro-life.
