2012 March For Life

Hundreds of thousands of people have already gathered in Washington D.C. to commemorate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade with the annual March for Life tomorrow. Over the past few days, we have already seen similar pro-life marches in San Francisco, CA and in Baton Rouge, LA. 

Unfortunately our mainstream media is too preoccupied with such global matters as the Kardashians' latest exploits to notice these historic gatherings. Thankfully we have EWTN, CatholicTV, and various websites reporting on the March for Life for those of us unable to attend.

Let us pray that the Holy Spirit pour His graces on those participating in the marches so that their example will inspire more people to stand in defense of life even in the face of a society hostile to our faith. May the Holy Spirit also touch the hearts of our elected leaders so that they too can see abortion for the evil that it really is and finally work to end it's practice. Finally, let us pray to Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patroness of the Americas and of the Pro-Life movement, that she may lead our nation to finally embrace a culture of life.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us. St. Michael pray for us.

Blessed John Paul II Prayer for Life:

O Mary, bright dawn of the new world, Mother of the living, to you do we entrust the cause of life.

Look down, O Mother upon the vast numbers of babies not allowed to be born, of the poor whose lives are made difficult, of men and women who are victims of brutal violence, of the elderly and the sick killed by indifference or out of misguided mercy.

Grant that all who believe in Your Son may proclaim the Gospel of life with honesty and love to the people of our time. Obtain for them the grace to accept that Gospel as a gift ever new, the joy of celebrating it with gratitude throughout their lives and the courage to bear witness to it resolutely, in order to build, together with all people of good will, the civilization of truth and love, to the praise and glory of God, the Creator and lover of life.
