When we reflect upon the apostles that Jesus called first, we think of The Twelve. Of course, we realize that Jesus called more apostles to follow him and continues to call forth leaders even today. We need leaders and shepherds.
Often, we can rebel against leadership just as the nation of Israel rebelled in the Old Testament stories. It may be easier to rebel than to lead. And, here, is the invitation to embrace your inner apostle and see where you can lead as well!
Today, we pray for the protection of unborn human life and the end to abortion. We must come to the defense of the most innocent in our society as the foundation of any other social justice movement we may feel.
We must not abandon the most defenseless to the whims of political action or “choice” when those freedoms cannot even be lived out by the One trapped in the womb of injustice. Be an Apostle of Life today - willing to stand, to defend and to celebrate the Author of Life.
Spiritual Reflection: “Embrace your inner Apostle.”
Blessings of love,
