Pope Francis speaks for the Unborn and Aged

Ave Maria Meditations

As the 40 Days for Life–in more than 300 cities–comes to a close, we give thanks for the many people that prayed and sacrificed and kept public vigil during these past weeks and ask God’s abundant blessings on them.  And we consider once again the Holy Father’s words just before the 40 Days began:

Pope Francis: strong words against abortion

Each one of us is invited to recognize in the fragile human being the face of the Lord, who, in his human flesh, experienced the indifference and loneliness to which we often condemn the poorest, either in the developing nations, or in the developed societies. Each child who is unborn, but is unjustly condemned to be aborted, bears the face of Jesus Christ, bears the face of the Lord, who, even before he was born, and then as soon as he was born, experienced the rejection of the world. And also each old person and – I spoke of the child, let us also speak of the elderly, another point! And each old person, even if infirm or at the end of his days, bears the face of Christ. They cannot be discarded, as the “culture of waste” proposes! They cannot be discarded!

Franciscus
