We Belong to our Creator

“Yahweh God shaped man from the soil of the ground and blew the breath of life into his nostrils, and man became a living being.” (Genesis 2:7, New Jerusalem Bible)

Some who do not claim belief in an intelligent Creator would have us believe that humans belong to no one. Abortionists often attempt to cause doubt in the mind of a young mother, claiming that the baby inside her is her “property” and that she has the right to terminate the infant’s life. As Christians, we know that we own nothing and that we belong to God our Creator. To Christians, every life is too precious, at whatever age a person may be, to terminate it.

Out of His great love, God brought us into this world by His own creative act. In Colossians 1:16,17, we read that “for in him were created all things in heaven and on earth: everything visible and everything invisible, thrones, ruling forces, sovereignties, powers — all things were created through him and for him. He exists before all things and in him, all things hold together.” When we give in to the demands of “pro-choice” religious leaders and politicians, we are denying His abilities, His love and essentially we are claiming that we do not belong to God, and in fact, that there is no God. No true Catholic would ever think in such a manner. “The fool hath said in his heart: There is no God, they are corrupt, and are become abominable in their ways: there is none that doth good, no not one.” (Psalm 14:1, Douay-Rheims)

May we pray for the lack of courage to stand up to those who would tell us that life is not sacred. May each of us declare with boldness the sanctity of life. Let us stand up with one another proclaiming the sovereignty of our God, who is the Creator of all life. Let us pray for all unborn children and for their protection.

God bless you,
Fr. Charles
