Exhibit of shoes from the victims of Auschwitz
I spent most of this morning pondering the Holocaust of WWII. The genocide of approximately six million European Jews during World War II. I looked at many photos of the men, women and children who were exterminated because no one at the time believe they held any worth to the human race. Those who carried out the crimes and those who did nothing to stop it. I pondered the closeness of each concentration camp in proximity to villages and wondered how towns and nearby villages could allow such things to continue as if it was nothing.
Children, all murdered by Nazis
These are the faces we have seen. What about all the unseen faces, souls who were not photographed, that entered these camps never to be seen again?
My mind immediately wandered to today. I beg my readers to understand I am in no way trying to diminish the severity of what happened to all these souls. Not at all, I want to point out that this atrocity is continuing now, everywhere in the world where abortion is legal. The United States, China, and every nation on earth is commiting the same genocide today under a sanitized name called abortion. There is no difference. We are souls, created in the image of God, not insignificant body’s of flesh.
What caused the Genocide of all these souls in Europe, all six million, is the same cause of the murder of approximately 42 million infants every year throughout the world. No compassion. No love. Pure selfish ambition. Rather pinning this on the insanity of one man, we can pin the genocide of every infant today on the madness of entire society’s that push for abortion to continue. Along with those who do nothing to stop it. We have ourselves to blame for allowing this to continue.
That first picture of the shoes, touched the very heart of my being. I wish someone would collect baby booties of every human taken by abortion in the world and place them on display, for the world to see. The shoes that will never be filled, the smiles that will never be seen, the giggles that will never be heard, because society decided to do nothing to stop this. The world and the sickness of this pro culture of death society decided rather to make excuses to justify the killing of all these children, the most innocent souls among us.
“Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
May God have mercy on us all.
Father in Heaven, we thank You for the gift of life. Grant that all mothers who give birth will welcome their babies with love, but if the mothers feel they are unable to raise their babies, grant that they may be compassionate toward the life You have given and not destroy it before birth. To those children who have been wantonly deprived of earthly life grant whatever happiness to which they are entitled. And to the mothers who have denied them life in this world grant Your merciful grace of repentance and reconciliation with Our Savior, so that they may obtain eternal life. Grant also the grace of conversion to those who perform abortions and anyone associated with abortion.
Mary, Mother of God, intercede for us. Holy Innocents, pray for us. Amen.

I feel so strongly about what you are saying. To me it is incomprehensible that abortion is carried out in civilization today. What kind of people are we that can so readily murder a child in the womb? How did we lose so much respect for life? How long will God stay His hand? We need to pray unceasingly.
Abortion needs to stop now. Right now.
Excellent Peg! I love the way you tied this in and you are correct “abortion needs to end now!!!!” You know though we can go all the way back into the Bible and babies have always been murdered in some form or fashion. It makes me so sick and I will never be able to come to close to how their Creator feels. Thanks for doing this! God Bless, SR
