This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Come to me, all you who are weary and overburdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
Reflection: The burden Jesus is talking about is not just that you have bills to pay, tasks to accomplish, or a busy schedule to keep. He is speaking about the burden we feel when we see injustice all around us; the burden we experience when the rights of our brothers and sisters are trampled down and innocent blood is shed. He is speaking of the labor we engage in to correct these injustices and build a culture of life.
Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for refreshing me each day in the battle for life! Amen!
