Praying for Protection from the Real Wolf

BY FR. FRANK PAVONE

Friends, please return to this page every day for a new reflection that will enrich your daily prayer life and give you new vigor to stand up for the unborn.

These reflections are taken from the book “Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day” by Fr. Frank Pavone which is available for purchase at: www.ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“The hired hand…sees the wolf approaching, and he leaves the sheep and runs away, while the wolf catches and scatters them” (John 10:12).

Reflection: The pro-life struggle is not about a mother against her baby. It is about mother and baby together against a destructive and unscrupulous abortion industry that cares for neither. To be pro-life is to be pro-woman, and to ask, ‘Why can’t we love them both?’

Prayer: Lord, so many women and children are in danger today from the abortion industry, which deceives, injures, and kills them. Make us good shepherds, like you are, that we may stand for the vulnerable and protect them. Amen.
