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.
