“He will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from his mother’s womb.” ~ Luke 1:15 (full readings)

Rich’s Reflections: The Old Testament reading, Psalm, and Gospel today all reflect on God’s blessings through babies, born and unborn. Throughout salvation history, God’s plan has been to send babies filled with the Holy Spirit to redeem and deliver His people. The babies Samson (Jgs 13:5), John the Baptizer (Lk 1:16-17), and Jesus (Lk 1:32-33) are commissioned before conception to rescue God’s people. In addition, Scripture presents baby Moses (Ex 2:2) as an infant who should have been killed, but was rescued from certain death so that he could rescue Israel. Since God rescues His people by sending anointed babies, it stands to reason that Satan would fight strongly against the conception, delivery, and raising of babies (culture of death). Millions of babies are aborted each year and many millions more never were conceived because of artificial contraception. Let’s not reject God’s plan of deliverance through babies. This Christmas, embrace the Infant Jesus and all babies. Jesus, “the Life” (Jn 11:25), plans to defeat the culture of death through our openness to life. “Choose life” (Dt 30:19).

Faith Challenge: Support God’s plan by choosing life.

Faith Quote: “Any country that accepts abortion, is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what it wants.”  ~ Mother Teresa

Through Christ our Lord,
James 1:22

* Pray/Fast: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. Fast from things that take your eyes off Jesus. Those who pray together stay together, and close to God!
* Save Unborn (& family): Abortion reality (images)…#1 death cause (22% pregnancies). Prov 24:11Jer 1:5. “A great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish.” Mother Teresa.
* Evangelize: Make room for unbelievers & re-evangelization of self, by way of prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of love (service/sacrifice/mercy). Mt 28:19.
