Please join us in prayer for all victims of abortion
« on: January 22, 2008, 05:45:37 PM »
Dearest in Christ, please pray

• That our hierarchs, priests and faithful may have wisdom to speak out effectively against these evils,

• That our parish communities may reach out to share our resources on behalf of those under siege from the Culture of Death,

• For pregnant women in crisis that they may find grace and support to bring their babies to term,

• For strength and insight for pro-life workers to protect the helpless,

• For the babies that they may come to safe delivery and to Christian nurture in a loving home,

• For abortion providers to cease their practice and come to repentance,

• For the ill and the elderly that they may live out their days surrounded by care and attention.

O LORD JESUS CHRIST, the only-begotten Son of the Father, True God, source of Life and immortality, light of light Who has come into the world to enlighten it; You were pleased to be conceived in the womb of the Theotokos by the Holy Spirit for the salvation of our souls; O Master, Who came that we might have life more abundantly, we beseech You to enlighten the hearts and minds of those blinded to the truth that life begins at conception and that the unborn are already adorned with Your image and likeness in the womb. Enable us to cherish and protect the lives of all who are unable to care for themselves, for You Yourself are the Bestower of Life Who brings every person from nothingness into being and seals each person with divine and infinite love. Be merciful, O Lord, to those who through ignorance or willfulness affront Your divine providence through the evil act of abortion. Bring us all to the light of Your truth that we may all glorify You the Giver of Life together with Your Father and Your all-holy and life-giving Spirit. AMEN

Amen.

In all the dioceses of the United States of America, January 22 shall be observed as a particular day of penance for violations to the dignity of the human person committed through acts of abortion, and of prayer for the full restoration of the legal guarantee of the right to life. The Mass . . . should be celebrated with violet vestments as an appropriate liturgical observance for this day.

"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
