“Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel” (Liturgy of Ash Wednesday)
Reflection: Lent is the time when we learn more deeply why we are pro-life. Turning away from sin means we put God above our “freedom of choice.” Believing in the Gospel means we believe in life, and reject the forces of death, including abortion.
Prayer: Lord, I fully repent of all the times I have given my choices more weight than yours. This Lent, renew my fidelity to you. May I be a living example of what it means to choose life, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
