The Coming Of The Son Of Man

Extract

Man demonstrating against Abortion and holding placard with images of torn parts of aborted child.

Jesus was asked when the Kingdom of God was coming. He replied, “First (the Son of Man) must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation”. (Luke 17:25)

Thought

Jesus was rejected and suffered as he predicted. Indeed, he is still being rejected today!

Reflection

Lord Jesus, strengthen all who shepherd your people. Bless their work and labours. May their continued efforts enlighten the lost and bring wisdom to the faithful.

Prayer: Unborn Child

Almighty God, our Father,
you who have given us life
and intended us to have it forever,
grant us your blessing.

Enlighten our minds to an awareness
and to a renewed conviction
that all human life is sacred
because it is created
in your image and likeness.

Give us the grace to intercede
when the sacredness of life
before birth is attacked,
to stand up and proclaim
that no one has the authority
to destroy unborn life.
