Every human life has value.

Do unborn children have tears? I don’t know, but this will be my prayer for our country from now until election day. It comes from a passage I recently came across in the Diary of St. Faustina:

Once after an adoration for our country, a pain pierced my soul, and I began to pray in this way: “Most merciful Jesus, I beseech You through the intercession of Your dearest Mother who nurtured You from childhood, bless my native land. I beg You, Jesus, look not on our sins, but on the tears of little children, on the hunger and cold they suffer. Jesus, for the sake of these innocent ones, grant me the grace that I am asking of You for my country.” At that moment, I saw the Lord Jesus, His eyes filled with tears, and He said to me, You see, My daughter, what great compassion I have for them. Know that it is they who uphold the world.

    Hi! I just want to say you’re doing a great job. Thank you very much for your blog. My name is Alicia Nin and I live in Uruguay, South America. I found your blog looking for material to send to a friend who was going to be part of a panel on abortion. She was the only one with a pro-life position against five pro-abortion people. Abortion was approved two weeks ago in the Senate. The president, who is also a doctor, had promised to veto the abortion law.
    Kind regards,
