Hope on this Day of Prayer: Family Reflection Video

Why pray?  |  Love thy Neighbor

With the grace of God, we can confront evil in our day through speaking the truth in love.

From what I’ve seen of the March for Life, it reminds me of the youthfulness of David from today’s reading. For it’s the young people who are closer in age to those they seek to defend. It’s the young people who send this strong message to the world that God will be victorious in the end, just like He was with David’s battle.

And, for those who are struggling to heal from an incident concerning the unborn, in the Gospel today Jesus calls out to anyone who is hurting and suffering to begin again. To live without any limitation so as to be in full friendship, in full communion with Jesus.

Please join me to pray for the protection of the unborn made in the image of God who will enrich our families, cities and the world in ways that we can only imagine, and known only to God.

May God bless our pre-born brothers and sisters, and all those who work and pray on their behalf!
