Today's Pro-Life Reflection
(From Fr. Frank Pavone's Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day) 
February 20
"With the help of the Lord I have brought forth a man." (Genesis 4:1)
Reflection: This was the declaration of the first woman upon becoming the first mother. The help of the Lord is essential, for he alone has dominion over human life and is its origin. Parents cooperate with God in bringing forth life, but are not its owners or ultimate source. Because this whole process is under God's dominion, we are not permitted to interrupt it.
Prayer: Lord, I pray today for all parents. May they recognize the awesome privilege they have to cooperate with you in bringing forth new life. I pray in Jesus' name. 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.
