The conversation around abortion deeply saddens me. Christians have allowed secular, political talking points to guide a deeply theological conversation. This is not a conversation about individual “rights” or laws written by men. This is a conversation about the very nature of God and his creation. God became man “and dwelt among us.” The Incarnation and Resurrection change everything. Lord, have mercy!
“Almighty and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made, and dost forgive the sins of all those who are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
