Today's Pro-Life Reflection
Friends, please return to this page every day for a new reflection that will enrich your daily prayer life and give you new vigor to stand up for the unborn.
These reflections are taken from the book "Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day" by Fr. Frank Pavone which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org (http://www.priestsforlife.org/pro-life-reflections/index.aspx)
"True 'compassion' leads to sharing another's pain; it does not kill the person whose suffering we cannot bear" – Evangelium Vitae, 66.
Reflection: The word "compassion" comes from the Latin words meaning "to suffer with." Love brings us closer to people, and when they are in pain love wants to come closer still. Love gladly suffers for and with the one who is loved. The so-called "right to die" is really a clever disguise for the right to kill.
Prayer: Lord, free us from the selfishness that wants to run away from the suffering of others. Instead, fill us with true compassion, that we may suffer with them. Amen.

STATEN ISLAND, NY – Rather than answer the simple question as to what is the moral difference between killing a baby outside the womb or inside the womb, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has criticized Priests for Life, and its National Director, Fr. Frank Pavone, for raising the issue in an open letter, calling them arrogant, medieval, hysterical, and disconnected from the Church. Fr. Pavone…
