Good Morning out there! This past Saturday I shared the Joyful Mysteries of the Pro-Life Rosary with you. Today I'm going to share the Sorrowful Mysteries. For me, the sorrowful mysteries are a lot harder, you know that old saying "the truth hurts" well, it does. This is why I will not give up, this is why I will not be silent. Please remember, the scriptures come straight from the Bible, and the intentions have been written by a Pro-Life person. Being pro-life is for all Christians, no matter what our denomination is. I hope you will take the time to read these, maybe add them to your daily reflections. I hope that each of you have a blessed day, bye for now, Sharla
My motto for today is: I will not be silent, I will not give up!
First Sorrowful Mystery
The Agony in the Garden
In His anguish He prayed with all the greater intensity, and His sweat became like drops of blood
falling to the ground. Then He rose from prayer and came to His disciples, only to find them asleep, exhausted with grief.
Let us pray for mothers and fathers who are in agony because they are tempted to abort a child. May they be given the good news that there are alternatives, and may they make use of the help that is available.
Second Sorrowful Mystery
The Scourging at the Pillar
Pilate's next move was to take Jesus and have Him scourged.
As Christ's flesh was torn by the instruments of those who scourged Him, so the bodies of babies in the womb are torn by the instruments of the abortionists. Let us pray that abortionists may repent of these acts of child-killing.
Third Sorrowful Mystery
The Crowning With Thorns
They stripped off His clothes and wrapped Him in a scarlet military cloak. Weaving a crown out of thorns they fixed it on His head, and stuck a reed in His right hand...
Jesus suffered the pain of thorns in His head, and did so silently. We pray for the mothers and fathers of aborted children. So many of them suffer deep grief and regret over a choice they can never reverse. So many suffer in silence, because others tell them it's no big deal.
Fourth Sorrowful Mystery
The Carrying of the Cross
....carrying the cross by Himself, He went out to what is called the Place of the Skull (in Hebrew, Golgotha).
Jesus was not condemned by the power of wicked people. He was condemned because of the silence of good people. Silence always helps the oppressor, never the victim. Let us pray that we may never be silent about abortion, but rather will clearly speak up to save babies from death.
Fifth Sorrowful Mystery
Jesus uttered a loud cry and said, "Father, into Your hands I commend My spirit." After He said this, He expired.
As we ponder the death of Christ, let us remember the many women who have died from so-called "safe, legal" abortions. Let us ask forgiveness and mercy for them. May their memory save other women from making this tragic mistake.
Jesus, protect and save the unborn.
