You shouldn’t forget that while you lived as an embryo, you not only received nutrition from your mother but you also received love from her. Likewise, people living on earth are not only receiving physical nutrition from the universe but also love from God, who is the essential element of life. (Blessed Family -1062) CSG page 452
This morning, January 21, 2012 reading the passage above from CSG I understood for the first time the meaning of what it means “Indirect relationship with God, while in a period of growth”. I went further in my understanding. I also believe that I understand more clearly the dilemma of abortion.

As we grow and development our understanding of our world and expend our ability to love, we become more independent and capable of relating to God on our own and therefore also relate to the universe on our own. By the time we reach maturity, by no means tells us that we have learned everything, but maturity is the time that we are judged capable to take responsibility for ourselves and for someone else’s life as well. And so, we become parents ourselves and the circle starts all over.
