“The Lord called me from my birth, from my mother’s womb God gave me my name.” Certainly, this was true of John the Baptist (June 24 is the Solemnity of his birth) who prepared the way for the Lord. But, when you think about it, it is also true for you and me. God has called each of us from our mother’s womb, as well. He wants us to prepare the way for the Lord, too. All life is sacred from tHe mother’s womb until natural death. Let’s pray for all those adversely affected by the scourge of abortion. May they have God’s peace and love.
