~ Alice von Hidebrand, The Privilege of Being a Women, p.33 ~
This is one of my favorite author and books... but I say here.. that a woman doesn't have to give birth to give a child an immortal soul since right at conception a soul is born..
For what happens when that baby doesn't make to birth..
Not by choice of a mother but nature itself?
Here I sit with this thought in my head and my soul as
we lose another soul before he is born..
But my sadness is not of my own pity.. no..
sadness is of those thousands and thousands of unborn that lost their lives..
not by nature
I morn for them, since their own mothers may have not..
for I know that I will not see my own child on earth but that I love him..
and I await to see him in the arms of My Lord at the end of times..
Heavenly Father, in Your love for us, protect against the wickedness of the devil, those helpless little ones to whom You have given the gift of life.
Touch with pity the hearts of those women pregnant in our world today who are not thinking of motherhood.
Help them to see that the child they carry is made in Your image - as well as theirs - made for eternal life.
Dispel their fear and selfishness and give them true womanly hearts to love their babies and give them birth and all the needed care that a mother can give.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen.
