This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“It is I who bring both death and life” (Deuteronomy 32:39).
Reflection: Some in our society are using language about the right to die to disguise a right to kill — to get the burdensome and inconvenient out of our way, all the while making it look as though we are doing them a favor. No matter how frail they become, people are always children of God whose lives are valuable beyond measure.
Prayer: Lord, give us strength in our frailty, and compassion when we encounter the frailty of others. Give us patience in our sufferings, and a spirit of service when we encounter the sufferings of others. Amen.
