“Life, especially human life, belongs only to God: for this reason whoever attacks human life, in some way attacks God himself.” – John Paul II, The Gospel of Life, n.9.
Reflection: No human being can own another, not even one’s own child. God entrusts us to the care of one another, but he alone remains the owner of human life. That’s why we cannot throw it away, no matter how small, frail, or inconvenient it may sometimes be.
Prayer: Lord, may all people acknowledge you as the only master of human life. May those who defend life understand that they are not only defending their brothers and sisters, but are also defending you!
