Today's Pro-Life Reflection
(From Fr. Frank Pavone's Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day) 
April 8
Palm Sunday - "The crowds...kept shouting, 'Hosanna to the Son of David!'" (Matthew 21:9)
Reflection: Jesus' entry into Jerusalem is triumphant, a stark contrast to the shouts of the crowd on Friday saying, "Crucify him!"
The triumph of Palm Sunday represents the fact that by coming to Jerusalem, he is bringing about the triumph of grace over sin and life over death. His being lifted up on the cross is a lifting up in glory. It is not weakness, but strength – the strength to give one's life for others who need to be saved.
Prayer: Jesus, grant me the palm of victory to give myself away for those who cannot defend themselves. 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.
