Many of us didn’t believe that this day would ever come. But last Friday, on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the United States Supreme Court overturned the Roe v. Wade decision. Abortion is no longer “the law of the land,” this terrible evil no longer perversely enshrined as a "constitutional right."
After nearly 50 years of praying, marching, legislating, counseling, sacrificing and witnessing, by millions of people, the disastrous 1973 Supreme Court decision finally came down like the Walls of Jericho. And when the crowds gathered in front of the Supreme Court, it was striking and heartening to see how young the pro-life crowd was in comparison to the pro-abortion protestors.
We thank God. And we thank all of you who have prayed, marched, legislated, counseled, sacrificed, and witnessed to change the hearts of men and women and to save the lives of children in the womb. As we know, 60 million children have been lost, and that is a tragedy that cries out to Heaven. But because of your efforts, untold hearts were changed, and untold babies were born that would have been aborted. And because of your efforts, the decision has been reversed.
Let us be grateful for this tremendous victory.
But our country is still in a battle against the Culture of Death. Last Friday's decision returned the issue of abortion to the states, and many state governments have promised to continue to sanction the killing of the unborn. We must continue to pray to heal and change hearts, to give assistance to mothers, and to change legislation until every child is safe in its mother's womb.
Sacred Heart of Jesus we place all our trust in You.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, please protect Your Children.
