Civilization of death. Still the same. Only rights, no responsibilities. And me and myself. “When Herod realized that he had been deceived by the magi, he became furious. He ordered the massacre of all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity two years old and under” (Mt 2:16). 2 years old and under. True enemies. A real danger. Indeed.
In civilization of death a child still is a danger, “something” which could change MY plans, MY career, MY life and MY world.
This civilization is all around. Like the devil. TRYING. Sometimes with a quiet suggestion – you have the right to…
Civilization of life starts with responsibilities: What can I do for YOU? In this civilization we do not HAVE children. We ARE parents. And our responsibility is to protect them, love them, educate them, pray with them, encourage them and… Parents know how creative is their vocation to be parents.
With my prayers for you, who serve the civilization of life in so many places and in a so many ways.
