Pro-Life Meditations on the "Sorrowful Mysteries" of the Rosary
By Fr. Frank
The Agony in the Garden
Let us pray for mothers and fathers who are in agony because they are tempted
to abort a child. May they be given the good news that there are alternatives,
and may they make use of the help that is available.
As Christ's flesh was torn by the instruments of those who scourged Him, so
the bodies of babies in the womb are torn by the instruments of the
abortionists. Let us pray that abortionists may repent of these acts of
The Crowning With Thorns
Jesus suffered the pain of thorns in His head, and did so silently. We pray
for the mothers and fathers of aborted children. So many of them suffer deep
grief and regret over a choice they can never reverse. So many suffer in
silence, because others tell them it's no big deal.
The Carrying of the Cross
Jesus was not condemned by the power of wicked people. He was condemned
because of the silence of good people. Silence always helps the oppressor, never
the victim. Let us pray that we may never be silent about abortion, but rather
will clearly speak up to save babies from death.
As we ponder the death of Christ, let us remember the many women who have
died from so-called "safe, legal" abortions. Let us ask forgiveness and mercy
for them. May their memory save other women from making this tragic mistake.
