Novena for Reparation for Roe vs. Wade

Before my blogging gets back into full swing, a quick but important plug for Priests for Life.

Please join Father Pavone and the the Priests for Life for a Novena for reparation from January 14-22, as we lead up to the 38th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade.  If ever there were a reason that so many (accurately) perceive that our society is in such a sad state of moral decline, it might begin with the fact that we have literally turned a blind eye to the slaughter of 50+ million of our own children in what should be the safest environment for a new child to live and grow, and before they had a chance to take their first breath.  In a country of just over 300 million that would be closer to 350 million if those children had had a chance to live and to grow, that is approximately 1/7 of our potential population.  The socio-economic impact of their absence is devastating by itself, but is far exceeded by the fact that the lie of "safe and legal abortion" has turned 50+ million parents into murderers.  May God have mercy on their souls and on the souls of those who are active or complicit, and for those of us who have failed to raise our voices loud and clear in justifiable anger.

Please visit the web site and join in the prayer for the nine days leading up to the anniversary, and the March for Life on January 24, 2011:

Prayer for Reparation
God and Father of Life,
You have created every human person,
And have opened the way for each to have eternal life. 

We live in the shadow of death.
Tens of millions of your children have been killed
because of the Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion. 

Father, have mercy on us.
Heal our land
And accept our offering of prayer and penance.
In your love for us,
Turn back the scourge of abortion.

May each of us exult in hearts full of hope
And hands full of mercy
And work together to build a culture of life. 

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.



  1. I ordered Abby Johnson's book UnPlanned and can hardly wait to read it. Last year's Right to Life week was so amazing. Can't wait to storm Heaven's Gates this year!!! Thanks for pointing out this novena!

  2. Thank you! Indeed, abortion is the scourge of our time.

  3. Thanks for the novena!!! Adding this to my "favorites" now! :) I also ordered that book and stayed up way too late last night because I couldn't stop reading it :)!

    Thanks for fighting for those who can't fight for themselves!!!
