“A notion of freedom which…gives no place to solidarity … ends up by becoming the freedom of ‘the strong’ against the weak” –The Gospel of Life, 19.
Reflection: Cardinal Meisner of Germany compared the slaughter of tens of millions of unborn children by abortion to the genocide campaigns conducted by Hitler and Stalin. Whenever a government removes equal protection from some human beings, it is an insult to all human beings. The class of victims may change, but the evil is the same.
Prayer: Deliver us from evil, O Lord. Preserve world governments from corruption and make them havens for human rights. Amen.
