The Mysteries of Life in the Womb

First Mystery

Each child in the womb is ordained by God and known personally.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I dedicated you...
Jeremiah 1:5

Second Mystery

Children in the womb are fully alive.

When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, “Most blessed are you among women” ...
Luke 1:41-42

Third Mystery

The sacrifice of children is inconceivable to God.

They have built the high places of Topheth in the Valley of Ben Hinnom
to burn their sons and daughters in the fire—something I did not command,
nor did it enter my mind.
Jeremiah 7:31

Fourth Mystery

Abortion wounds the soul of the mother.

“A voice was heard in Ramah,
sobbing and loud lamentation;
Rachel weeping for her children,
and she would not be consoled,
since they were no more.”
Matthew 2:18

Fifth Mystery

God calls us to warn others.

Did you fail to rescue those who were being dragged off to death,
those tottering, those near death,
because you said, “We didn’t know about it”?
Proverbs 24:11-12
