The March for Life in Washington DC for 2023 was observed this past Friday giving thanks to God for the gift of human life, to witness to its ultimate importance and inviolability, and to implore the Divine Assistance for the conversion of the hearts of all people. Today is the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling which legalized abortion in all 50 states.
“The right to life is a human right. Our defense of that right is a joyful witness to the beauty and dignity of every human person.”
Prayer for the Unborn
Let us pray. Heavenly Father, in Your love for us, protect against the wickedness of the devil, those helpless little ones to whom You have given the gift of life. Touch with pity the hearts of those women pregnant in our world today who are not thinking of motherhood.
Help them to see that the child they carry is made in Your image – as well as theirs – made for eternal life. Dispel their fear and selfishness and give them true womanly hearts to love their babies and give them birth and all the needed care that a mother can give.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen!
