Respect Life Month – Day Seven

“The truth that sets us free cannot be kept to ourselves; it calls for testimony, it begs to be heard, and in the end it’s convincing power comes from itself and not from the human eloquence or arguments in which it may be couched…  Each of us has a mission, each of us is called to change the world, to work for a culture of life, a culture forged by love and respect for the dignity of each human person.” (Pope Benedict XVI, Hyde Park Vigil, September 18, 2010)

Prayer for Pro-Life Efforts

Hail and blessed be the hour and the moment in which the Word of God came to earth as a single cell and made His abode in the most pure body of the Virgin Mary. O Cell Divine, in that hour hear the prayers that we send to you across the ages.

Welcome into Your loving care the souls of all those children who are rejected by their mothers.

Look with compassion upon those mothers who are driven by distress and delusion to seek the lives of their own offspring.

Have mercy upon those who turn their training in the healing arts to the purposes of death.

Inspire Christians everywhere to seek out and apply Christian solutions to social problems.

Bless our efforts to educate and serve. Help us to conduct them in the spirit of humility and love that will win minds and hearts to accept the truth, to minister to those in need, and to forego the resort to violence. Amen.

  1. “Have mercy upon those who turn their training in the healing arts to the purposes of death.” As a pro-life nurse, this really stands out for me. When I participate in 40 days for life at the abortuary in my city, I pray for the doctors and nurses who use their expertise to destroy life instead of upholding life. I don’t understand how they can do that and I find it very distressing. We all need to pray that they realize the consequences of their actions and walk away from the destruction they are enabling.
