“It’s a Matter of Life”
Written by Anonymous One
One of Satan’s subtle strategies is to entice us to think that we operate effectively on our own ability. As advocates for human life, we engage in a multi-front battle. We fight for legislation and support ProLife candidates, witness in front of baby killing mills, March every year in DC, and numerous other ways. We are easy prey to be enticed to think these efforts from our own abilities are enough. We must always remember that we cannot win this spiritual battle with mere human efforts.
“O God and Father of the living, to you do we entrust the cause of life. Look down upon the vast numbers of babies not allowed to be born, of the poor whose lives are made difficult, of men and women who are victims of brutal violence, of the elderly and the sick killed by indifference or out of misguided mercy. Grant that all who believe in your Son may proclaim the Gospel of life with honesty and love to the people of our time. Obtain for them the grace to accept that Gospel as a gift ever new, the joy of celebrating it with gratitude throughout their lives, and the courage to bear witness to it resolutely, in order to build, together with all people of good will, a civilization of truth and love, to the praise and glory of God, the Creator and lover of life. Amen.”
