We Are the People of Life

Fr. Frank Pavone

In the 37th chapter of Ezekiel, the Lord declares: “O My people, I will open your graves and have you rise from them.” The Lord is promising that He will return the exiles to their own land, and He is also promising the future resurrection from the dead and our entrance into the promised land of heaven. Through Ezekiel, God is proclaiming that He is the God of Life, and that we are the People of Life. That is why we are pro-life. To believe in God and to work for salvation means we work against anything that destroys life. The God Who promises to open our graves does not want us to send children into their graves. Let the evangelizing work of the Church speak strongly for life!
