Voice From the Womb

Sometimes I laugh when I hear spoken around me,
grownups saying they wish they were a child again.
“We could always play, with no worries,
Someone would always be there who knows how to take care of us”. If they only knew the burdens a child carries these days!
Yes, I listen to people speak from within my mother’s womb.
When she sits down to watch TV, I listen too.
Sometimes I get tired of the channel and give her a kick.
That’s my signal to change the channel,
but she hasn’t learned it yet.
She just gathers everyone around to
place their hand on her to feel the baby’s kick.
I kick them too in the hope they will get the message,
but they just don’t get it.
The first thing I learned in Life is to wonder
If I will ever make it out of my Mother’s Womb!
Oh, everything seems nice and comfy for the first few weeks,
until I heard the words that almost made my heart stop,
“I don’t think that we can afford this - I’m not ready for this”.
Come on Mom ‘n Dad! Don’t you have any faith in God to provide?
If not in God, then in the fruits of your works?
What about all those families in the old days that had 6 or 8 kids?
You don’t have to spoil me, I don’t want to be spoiled!
I've grown a lot lately, I should be able to help you out soon.
What's that coming in through the opening?
Isn't it a little early for the delivery? Ouch, that hurts! Help!
For thou didst form my inward parts, thou didst knit me together in my mother's womb. Psalm 139:13
On the subject of television, care should be taken how much we watch and which programs, for Mary has said: Do not waste time before the television set, which is the most powerful instrument in the hands of my Adversary in spreading everywhere the darkness of sin and impurity. Television is the idol spoken of in the book of Revelation, built to be adored by all the nations of the earth, and to which the Evil One gives shape and movement so that it might become, in his hands, a terrible means of seduction and perversion.Blessed Virgin Mary, MMP#374, Feb, 1988.
'Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you came to birth I consecrated you; I have appointed you as prophet to the nations'. Jeremiah 1:5
Ahh! Here at last. My life on earth is about to begin! The anticipation grows as my flesh and bones take shape. Soon I will be face to face with my mother. I will taste and see things that I can hear only faintly now. How exciting! A sad thought crosses my mind though: many other children will never make it out of their mother's womb. They will die a cruel and painful death, then either be thrown away or donated to science. That's not the worst of it; I see where the souls of those mothers, fathers, doctors, and nurses who perform such acts, and even those who support those acts, will spend an eternity of punishment, fire, and worms. I must do something to bring an end to the legalization of this cruel act, and save souls from eternal misery! But of course, that is why I am here. I have a mission for which I must prepare. I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were blazing! There is a baptism with which I must be baptized, and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished!
