Pray with the bishops to end abortion!

On January 22 our nation will mark the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal throughout the U.S.
Since that tragic decision, more than 55 million children’s lives have been lost to abortion, and many suffer that loss — often in silence.
Join thousands of Catholics across the country coming together in prayer for a “culture of life” from Saturday, January 18 – Sunday, January 26!

DAY ONE – January 18th

Intercession:

For the mother who awakens each morning with
the memory of abortion fresh in her mind: that
the Lord may still the terror in her heart and lead
her gently to the well-spring of his love and
mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. May
she, and all who’ve been involved in an abortion
decision, find healing and hope through Project
Rachel Ministry.

Prayer:

Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be

 

Reflection:

Today’s Gospel reading from Mark recounts
Jesus dining with tax collectors and sinners.
When the Pharisees question Jesus about this,
he responds, “Those who are well do not need a
physician, but the sick do. I did not come to call
the righteous but sinners.” In a society where
millions of people have fallen prey to the false
promises of the culture of death, let us witness
to the mercy of Jesus and invite all who’ve been
harmed to experience his abundant love and healing.

Acts of Reparation (choose one)

Take time to write a handwritten note to
someone who is lonely or needing
encouragement.

Pray for your deceased relatives and those
who have no one to pray for them.

“Spiritually adopt” a baby by saying this
prayer every day: “Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
I love you very much. I beg you to spare the
life of [baby’s name], the unborn baby that I
have spiritually adopted who is in danger of
abortion.” (Prayer of Archbishop Fulton Sheen)
