Respect Life Sunday 2016

The Visitation
When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice saying, "Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb (Luke 1:39-56).
Respect Life Sunday is October 2, 2016. The American Catholic bishops initiated Respect Life Sunday in 1972, the year before the Supreme Court legalized abortion in the United States. Since that time, Catholics across the country observe the month of October with devotions and pro-life activities in order to advance the culture of life.

Prayer for the Unborn in Danger of Abortion

Prayer for an unborn baby in danger of being aborted by Venerable Fulton J. Sheen to our Lady of Guadalupe intercessor for the unborn.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph;
I love you very much,
I beg you to spare the life
of the unborn baby
that I have spiritually adopted;
who is in danger of abortion. Amen.
Say this prayer each day for one year and a child in danger of abortion will be saved.

Let us with one voice continue to speak the language of love and affirm the right of every human being to have the value of his or her life, from conception to natural death, respected to the highest degree. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
