Souls concerning abortion
#24
Trust in God's goodness. I pray that the victims of abortion, the 57+ million since 1973 in the United States alone, may be united with the Holy Innocents, the Church's first buds of martyrdom.

I don't know what the ultimate destiny of these poor, murdered children will be, but they are the victims of a society, rebelling against Christ, a society  whose murder of children would put the Canaanites to shame. It makes me uncomfortable that I don't know, but the Church's silence in no way constrains God's action.

I wonder if the deaths of these blameless children isn't some grim portent of what is to come, as the little buds plucked by Herod, raging against the advent of the Messiah, presaged a fuller harvest of the flowers of martyrdom. How much more do I deserve death than these children, who are given no protection under the law.

When the persecutors of the faith return, as surely they will, and our children and grandchildren ask us when the terrible bloodletting began, we will not answer "2050" or "2025"---rather, "1973," when iconoclast physicians, with the full endorsement of the law, effaced the image of God from the sanctuary of the womb, cleaving face, brain, and skull with forceps and vacuum. That is when the temple of the human body, so holy in its perfection that Mary received the Incarnate Word in her flesh, was turned into an altar of Baal and Mammon, complete with blood sacrifice.
