Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day

by Fr. Frank Pavone

These reflections are taken from a book written by Fr. Frank Pavone which you can order on our online store.

"Through him all things came into existence" (John 1:3).

Reflection: Humanae Vitae is much more than a "birth control" encyclical. It declares and reaffirms the very meaning of human life as a sacred gift from God. We find our fulfillment precisely in welcoming, nurturing, and giving ourselves away for that gift of life. By capturing this vision of what life means, prohibitions on abortion and contraception make sense as pieces of a greater picture, and corollaries of one simple truth: God is love and life, and we are called to be like him.

Prayer: Jesus, you fill the world with life. Take away our fear, and make us fruitful. Amen!
