40 Days for Life Devotion from Fr Frank Pavone

I read this devotion in one of the daily 40 Days for Life email updates, and had to share it here!

——————————————————

DAY 38 INTENTION

——————————————————

Pray that we become vessels of hope to all around us,

especially to those who minister in the pro-life

movement.

——————————————————

SCRIPTURE

——————————————————

On the first day of the week, very early in the

morning, the women took the spices they had prepared

and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away

from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not

find the body of the Lord Jesus. “Why do you look for

the living among the dead? He is not here; he has

risen!”

— Luke 24:1-5

REFLECTION by Fr. Frank Pavone, Priests for Life

——————————————————

This meditation, based on a sermon I once heard, is

adapted for pro-life concerns.

 

It’s Friday. Jesus is on the cross. He has been killed

by his enemies; he is off the scene.

 

But that’s because it’s Friday. Sunday’s comin’!

 

It’s Friday. Abortionists continue their work 3,300

times a day, tearing off the arms and legs of little

babies and crushing their heads.

 

But that’s because it’s Friday. Sunday’s comin’!

 

It’s Friday. Pro-abortion groups receive blood money

from billionaires who are as deceived as they are.

 

But that’s because it’s Friday. Sunday’s comin’!

 

It’s Friday. Liars attempt to speak for all women and

hide the pain of abortion, and ignore the evidence of

how it harms women, and call abortion a blessing.

 

But that’s viagra 20mg for sale because it’s Friday. Sunday’s comin’!

 

It’s Friday. People of hardened hearts guard the

clinics and usher desperate women in to have their

abortions, while keeping them from the pro-life people

who want to give them hope.

 

But that’s because it’s Friday. Sunday’s comin’!

 

Hope does not mean that we ignore or minimize the

evils around us. It means, rather, that we see the

whole picture, which is that evil is conquered because

of what happened one Sunday morning.

 

We are called to proclaim, celebrate, and serve that

victory, waiting in joyful hope for Christ’s return

and the full flowering of the Culture of Life!

 

Indeed, Sunday’s comin’!

PRAYER

——————————————————

Lord, fill your people with new hope. Make us vessels

of hope to all around us, especially to those who

minister in the pro-life movement, that as we engage

in the difficult work ahead, we may experience the

peace and joy that come only from you and that nobody

can take away from us. We ask this through Christ our

Lord, Amen.
