Our prayer today is that we would welcome and embrace life from womb to tomb.
Cyprian of Carthage, a third-century North African bishop, wrote,
“The world is going mad in mutual extermination, and murder, considered as a crime when committed individually, becomes a virtue when it is committed by large numbers. It is the multiplication of the frenzy that assures impunity to the assassins.”
Life and death are both options that confront us today. In everything we do may we choose life.
