Our Lord's own thoughts on the unborn...


For it was you who created my being,

knit me together in my mother's womb.

I thank you for the wonder of my being,

for the wonders of all your creation.


Already you knew my soul,

my body held no secret from you

when I was being fashioned in secret

and molded in the depths of the earth.


Your eyes saw all my actions,

they were all of them written in your Book;

every one of my days was decreed

before one of them came into being.


To me, how mysterious your thoughts,

the sum of them not to be numbered!

If I count them, they are more than the sand;

to finish, I must be eternal, like you.


O search me, God, and know my heart.

O test me and know my thoughts.

See that I follow not the wrong path

and lead me in the path of life eternal.

(Psalm 139:13-18,23-24)
