Prayer for Life

Today, 22 of January, is a special day of prayer and reparation for sins committed against Life. In different Churches in the United States will be offered special prayers for this intention.

 We pray for the restoration of the right to life for all humans from the moment of conception to natural death and for an end to abortion.

We Pray to Mary the Mother of God with the words of Evangelium vitae:

O Mary, bright dawn of the new world,

Mother of the living, to you do we entrust the cause of life

Look down, O Mother,

upon the vast numbers

of babies not allowed to be born,

of the poor whose lives are made difficult,

of men and women

who are victims of brutal violence,

of the elderly and the sick killed

by indifference or out of misguided mercy.

Grant that all who believe in your Son

may proclaim the Gospel of life

with honesty and love

to the people of our time.

Obtain for them the grace

to accept that Gospel

as a gift ever new,

the joy of celebrating it with gratitude

throughout their lives

and the courage to bear witness to it

resolutely, in order to build,

together with all people of good will,

the civilization of truth and love,

to the praise and glory of God,

the Creator and lover of life.

(Evangelium vitae, John Paul II)
