This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“We who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread” (1 Cor. 10:17).
Reflection: When we call each other “brothers and sisters,” we are not merely using a metaphor that dimly reflects the unity between children of the same parents. Our unity in Christ is even stronger than that, because we do have common blood: the blood of Christ! The result of the Eucharist is that we become one, and this obliges us to be as concerned for each other as we are for our own bodies.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for the unity which marks the Culture of Life. Amen!
