Dear Friends in Christ,
With a pro-abortion health care plan in the works, and many other pro-abortion efforts being pushed through with the present administration, much prayer is needed.
Fr. Pavone has asked us to join him in a very special Novena Prayer for Life to Our Lady of Guadalupe. Please make the effort to pray this prayer with all of us over the next nine days.
Fr. Pavone actually has us begin on the day I meet to pray with my Knights of Divine Mercy (Tomorrow – Friday, Dec. 4), so those who gather will begin this novena together by praying it tomorrow night (I will distribute copies). These nine days lead up to the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12.
Please consider some fasting and/or abstinence at some points during your prayer as a way of intensifying your prayer.
I am planning to be in prayer, every morning from 6:00-7:00 AM at the clinic at 1 South Park St., for these nine days. You are welcomed to join me, beginning this Friday, December 4.
Please go to this site here and sign-in to indicate that you plan to pray this with 1000s of other Catholics throughout the world over these next nine days.
Ad Jesum per Mariam,
Fr. Rick Heilman
Novena Prayer for Life to Our Lady of Guadalupe
(Spanish version — En Español)
Oh Mary, Mother of Jesus and Mother of Life,
We honor you as Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Thank you for pointing us to Jesus your Son,
The only Savior and hope of the world.
Renew our hope in him,
That we all may have the courage to say Yes to life,
And to defend those children in danger of abortion.
Give us your compassion
To reach out to those tempted to abort,
And to those suffering from a past abortion.
Lead us to the day when abortion
Will be a sad, past chapter in our history.
Keep us close to Jesus, the Life of the World,
Who is Lord forever and ever. Amen.
