This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Take this and eat; this is my body” (Matthew 26:26).
Reflection: Supporters of abortion say, “This is my body, I can do what I want.” Jesus says, “This is my body, given up for you.” The same words are spoken from opposite ends of the universe, with totally opposite results. Let us resolve to live those words as Jesus did, giving ourselves away for the good of others, born and unborn.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for my body, my life and my freedom. May all of us understand the purpose of these gifts: to freely give ourselves away in love just as you did. Amen.
