Fr. Frank Pavone (http://www.FrFranksBlog.com), National Director of Priests for Life (http://www.PriestsForLife.org), shares thoughts on preaching pro-life on the 14th Sunday of Cycle A.

More liturgical resources are at http://www.ProLifePreaching.com.

A fuller explanation follows.

Zec 9:9-10
Rom 8:9, 11-13
Mt 11:25-30
"His dominion" (First reading) is brought about through "the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead" (Second reading). It is the dominion of life over death, not only in our bodies (Second reading) but in our culture, institutions, laws and policies.

That Spirit dwells in us (Second reading). We, therefore, are life-givers! In fact, we will either spread life or death. There is no neutrality. It is an easier yoke (Gospel) to both embrace and spread life than death, because we were made that way. We were made to be life-givers.

The Son wishes to reveal the Father to us (Gospel) precisely through that Spirit. What do we learn when he does so reveal the Father? We find the revelation of ourselves -- people of life, people of self-giving, people who can love like the Father loves!
