Meet Gage.. a precious child of God. He is full of life and bubbling over with glorious smiles! Gage’s mother and my daughter in law, happily chose life despite the challenges and obstacles with raising her children in our narcissistic culture of death.
Ironically, as I was downloading his adorable Gerber baby face, I noticed the side of his car seat with the seemingly ominous word WARNING in Bold letters with a yellow background. Although the manufacturer might have meant something else by that word, it takes on a prophetic meaning to all pregnant mothers who might consider abortion as a reason to end their child’s life because it is not the “right time”. Many mothers who chose abortion never consider that killing their child does not erase their motherhood. They will always be mothers’ either grieving the death of their child (at some point) or embracing motherhood with all joy as a great gift from God despite the challenges.
SERIOUS WARNING INDEED, TO OUR CULTURE OF DEATH, as Gage envelopes us with his gigantic smile as if saying, Thank you Mommy for choosing life!
I know many of you might never show up at a Planned Parenthood to pray and counsel. Perhaps in this year of Faith, you might prayerfully consider joining the front line efforts despite your fears and trepidations.
As faithful Catholics, Christians, and seekers of the good, the true, and right, we must in the words of Saint Paul, keep persevering and praying and not look for results and immediate fruit of our labors. Our prayers, penances, and obedience will one day create a Tsunami effect and drown abortion from our society. If we want to change the world, we must be the change and do our small part to fight the contraceptive and abortive mentality in our communities and world.
Indeed, Abortion is Social Injustice. Let us in the words of Mother Teresa show true justice with love as “Justice without love is not justice. Love without justice is not love.”
Mother Teresa, pray for us.
