Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children

Mk 3: 13-19

He went up the mountain and called to him those whom he wanted, and they came to him. And he appointed twelve, whom he also named apostles, to be with him, and to be sent out to proclaim the message, and to have authority to cast out demons. So he appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter); James son of Zebedee and John the brother of James (to whom he gave the name Boanerges, that is, Sons of Thunder); and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.

Then he went home.

Ambassadors of Mercy 

In today’s Gospel, Jesus calls the Twelve Apostles “to be sent out to proclaim the message.”  Many have also been called and sent out to participate in today’s March for Life in Washington, DC.  Several years ago I had the opportunity to participate in the March for Life.  Sadly, when reading about the event the next day in the newspaper, the image accompanying the article showed a group of pro-life and pro-choice activists shouting at each other.  This image summarized for me the challenge facing those who have been called and sent out to proclaim the Gospel of Life.

Instead of anger or self-righteousness, how can we be the face of God’s mercy to the world?  How can we live out Pope Francis’ dream of a Church that “heals wounds and warms the hearts of the faithful…a Church of nearness and proximity.”  How can we practice the art of accompaniment with women who are facing a crisis pregnancy?  How can we provide healing for men and women who have been wounded by abortion?  As we are sent out today to proclaim the message, let’s be ambassadors of God’s mercy for all those whom we encounter.

Prayer

Come! live in the light!
Shine with the joy and the love of the Lord!
We are called to be light for the kingdom,
to live in the freedom of the city of God!

We are called to act with justice.
We are called to love tenderly.
We are called to serve one another, to walk humbly with God.
