The circle of death

The circle of death

In Cardinal Sean O’Malley’s blog this week he includes his homily for a Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception before the March for Life and one particular phrase jumped out at me:

As the populations of the Western world age, we will see that the generation of parents that aborted their own children, will be euthanized by the children who survived.

What goes around comes around. In other words, if we build a civilization of love then our children will grow in that love and we will be recipients of that love, but if we build a culture of death, then our children will embrace death and we will reap that whirlwind.

  • Ten years ago, I started saying that I would not be surprised if I had to hide my elderly parents in the basement to keep them from the ‘quality of life’ police.  And I was only a teenager ten years ago.

  • How very true.  One of the primary dogmas of the Culture of Death is that children are a burden until the time they can be “independent” and “take care of themselves.”  Why, then, would the children raised in that culture treat the elderly and infirm otherwise when they can no longer be independent?

  • Interesting. Just last week a friend commented to me that these people who are aborting their children are self-serving on one hand, but hurting their own earthly future (in addition to their eternal salvation) on the other—after all, who is going to take care of them in their old age?
