Celebrate The Sanctity of Life

Reactions: 
Today, the thirty-sixth anniversary of the US Supreme Court’s landmark decision, Roe v Wade, thousands of people will be marching in Washington, D.C., and throughout the country, voicing their opposition to abortion.

To all who are marching today, know that many more are with you in spirit. May the Lord grant you peace and courage, prudence, and patience as you speak out for the unborn. May your voices blend with the saints and angels, who are praying in a special way today that life be protected and honored and that the tide will turn in favor of a culture of life.


To all who have been affected by abortion, please know that you, also, are in our prayers. The Father of mercies and the God of all consolation has not abandoned any of his children. No sin is too great for him to forgive. No wound is too great for him to heal. May you come to know the warmth of his touch and the light of his smile as He looks upon you in unconditional love and compassion!

Prayer for the Unborn
Heavenly Father,
in Your love for us,

protect against the wickedness of the devil,

those helpless little ones
to whom You have given the gift of life.


Touch with pity the hearts
of those women
pregnant in our world today
who are not thinking of motherhood.


Help them to see
that the child they carry

is made in Your image –

as well as theirs -
made for eternal life.


Dispel their fear and selfishness

and give them true womanly hearts

to love their babies
and give them birth
and all the needed care
that a mother can give.


We ask this through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord,
Who lives and reigns with You and Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen.
