Perhaps if weíd all ask ourselves that question and then act upon it, the carnage of abortion would have ceased by now. Somehow we must appease the anger of God and repent of the sin of abortion. If we are to have peace in our hearts, peace in America, peace in the world, we must make the life issue our priority.
I ask you, what is more important, what really matters? If life seems to matter so little, then we are a very confused people. Right now itís pretty easy to feel confused and depressed, wondering when the unrest and problems of the world will be solved and come to an end. The answer isnít all that difficult. Surely it will be when we come to accept life as a gift from God instead of some burden to be avoided. Say yes to life as Mary did (the Blessed Virgin Mother).
I could not imagine my life without my family, and we do have quite a crew. Six living children, 12 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. I ask myself every day, what can I do to make this a better world for them. Until abortion ceases I know I havenít done enough!
My husband and I attended a prayer service January 22, the anniversary date of Roe vs. Wade, at the Cathedral. My granddaughter, a single mom with her three loving children was here. I thought how great. This service was preparing them to go out into the world and help fight abortion.
This morning at Mass to help us realize the immensity of the number of aborted babies, Father Mike Cronin said that if we had a funeral every day for 20 babies, it would take 500 years to have them all. Thatís where my thoughts were at the prayer service. I imagined walking past and viewing all these little bodies, these innocent babies who had done nothing to deserve the death sentence. I fought back the tears and vowed to continue to be one of Godís soldiers fighting to stop this senseless killing. In a war we have allies and enemies (so we think). With abortion are these little children our enemies? Until we change to make them our allies, we havenít done enough...to stop abortion.
