Today’s Pro-Life Reflection: St. Francis of Assisi, pray for us

This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at:

“My brothers, birds, you should praise your Creator very much and always love him; he gave you feathers to clothe you, wings so that you can fly, and whatever else was necessary for you; though you neither sow nor reap, he nevertheless protects and governs you without any solicitude on your part” – St. Francis of Assisi.

Reflection: St. Francis was inspired to preach even to the birds about God’s care. He understood that if such a message is true for birds, it’s true for the tiniest human beings, those yet unborn. God loves them, and so must we.

Prayer: St. Francis, pray for us, that we may have reverence for all creation. Amen.
