Reflection:  I find it easy to stand up every Sunday and profess our Creed.  I know that in the graced moment I hope; no, I pray, that I would stand up.  Yes, I am Pro-Life, I am anti-abortion.  What does it cost me?  I am surrounded by others who share those beliefs.  I am embarrassed to admit that I become numb; numb to the huge numbers of abortions.  I should be fighting mad and not rest a minute until I demand change.  My own challenge is to use my voice, my heart, my entire self to proclaim that all human life is sacred and injustice is not an option.  We talk of options for the poor, but there is no option when it comes to the fundamental dignity of the human person.  It is not optional to value the sacred in all humanity from conception to natural death.  We cannot make it an option.  Lord, help me to stand up for Life with all my life.
Challenge:  Wear your LIFE Runners jersey today in public for First Wednesday, faith in action with over 5,000 LIFE Runners world-wide!

Pray LIFE Runners Creed to end abortion. 
Inspiration:  “Indeed someone might say, ‘You have faith and I have works.’ Demonstrate your faith to me without works, and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works.” ~ James 2:18
All In Christ for Pro-Life,
