The Humanity of the Unborn

The following scripture passage is the gospel reading from the Catholic Mass for Sunday, December 20, 2009. I particularly like this scripture because it clearly shows the humanity of unborn children. It also causes me to contemplate how pro-life Mary was. May you be filled with a profound love for the unborn and all life this Christmas season.

"Mary set out and went as quickly as she could to a town in the hill country of Judah. She went into Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth. Now as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. She gave a loud cry and said, ‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? For the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leapt for joy. Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’"

Luke 1:39-44
