Today's Pro-Life Reflection
(From Fr. Frank Pavone's Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day) 
August 25
"Behold, children are a gift from the Lord, a reward of the fruit of the womb" (Psalm 127:3).
Reflection: Because children are a "gift," they can neither be demanded nor discarded. That is why it is wrong not only to abort them, but also to "create" them through artificial means that replace normal human procreation. We do not have a "right" to children, but rather an awesome privilege to receive them, if God so chooses to give the gift.
Prayer: Lord, deepen our understanding of children as a gift. Give generosity to all parents, and patience to all those who await that gift. Amen.

Deacons for Life To Provide Networking and Encouragement
By Deacons for Life Posted: Monday, June 23, 2014
 
New York City -- Deacons for Life, a national ministry which is part of the Gospel of Life/Priests for Life Family of ministries, has announced a renewed launch of its efforts to network, equip and encourage deacons in their role as heralds and servants of the Gospel of Life.

A renewed website, at DeaconsForLife.org, enables deacons to obtain resources for prayer and preaching, as well as connect with national pro-life action items. Some of the projects on the horizon include:

National Voter Registration Sundays June 29 and July 6, to help voters prepare for the mid-term elections;
“Turning the Hearts of Fathers,” an effort to assist Churches to proclaim healing to men affected by abortion;
A call to the US Senate to schedule a vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act;
Preparation for the National Day of Remembrance, an observance in September by which simultaneous memorial services are held at the gravesites of aborted children.

Assisting in the leadership of this effort, along with Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, are the following deacons:

Deacon Keith Fournier 
Diocese of Richmond 

Deacon Dominick Pastore 
Archdiocese of Detroit 

Deacon Tim Kennedy 
Archdiocese of Newark 

Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers 
Archdiocese of Portland
