This month of December we pray for the protection of unborn life.
You cannot choose what you want to do, all
the time, unless it is a good choice, not just for you, but for those who love you, and for everyone else who might be directly impacted by your selection. It is why God laid down the commandments, and gave us all His teachings. The greatest commandment is
to 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and all your mind'. We cannot do this by breaking any of the other nine commandments, but especially the fifth commandment. To kill is unacceptable. To kill an unborn baby is to destroy "...a
being made in the image and likeness of God."
The other day I met a good friend for coffee. She told me that she had been at a session on the 8th amendment at the Fine Gael Conference in the Slieve Russel Hotel, and
that she had put the following question to the people present: .......
Society and "The baby"
The youngest baby ever born
Fertility and Adoption
God's Will to Preserve Life
That we may use our free will to perform good in God's name, for there is no true freedom except in the service of what is good and just
That expectant mothers will choose life and will be supported by family, friends and community in their decision to keep their child.
For all who have had abortions that they
may experience the healing hand of God in their lives.
For all those who reaffirm life and follow the true path; that they may continue to lead and inspire us
For all in positions of power that they may do what is God's holy will and not promote evil.
