Today's Pro-Life Reflection
(From Frank Pavone's Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day) 
February 21
"No word has the power to change the reality of things: procured abortion is the deliberate and direct killing... of a human being. " (Evangelium Vitae, 58)
Reflection: In discussing abortion, its supporters never defend the act of abortion itself, but only the alleged right of someone to have one. They focus on the freedom to choose it, but avoid describing what is chosen.
Our job is to focus the discussion on abortion itself, on what the act is.
Prayer: Come, Holy Spirit of truth. Fill our minds and give speech to our tongues. Give us grace to always face truth honestly, and enable us to challenge those who would evade it. Amen.

About Deacons for Life

Deacons for Life seeks to

  1. unite, encourage, and provide ongoing training to deacons to be as effective as possible in ending abortion, the pre-eminent moral tragedy of our day;

  2. instill a sense of urgency in all clergy to teach, preach, and mobilize their people to help stop abortion;

  3. assist clergy and laity to work together productively to protect the unborn.

Deacons for Life will create resources specifically for deacons, and will also utilize the resources and information of prayer, preaching, and action items that are prepared by Priests for Life.

Through mailings, emails, conference calls, webinars, and events, Deacons for Life will keep its members on the cutting edge of developments in the pro-life movement and how these interrelate with pastoral ministry.
  1. We can provide consultation to deacons, their pastors and their bishops regarding suggested respect life activities. This can include organizing prayer initiatives on behalf of life, assistance in strengthening local efforts to provide alternatives to abortion, sponsoring educational seminars, and assisting the laity to take an active and responsible role in building up community respect life efforts. The existence of a "Deacons for Life" network across the nation will make it easier for deacons to communicate with each other to share ideas and encouragement specifically on this theme.
