January 22 St. Vincent of Zaragossa, Day of Prayer for the Unborn

Life is a gift that God has given us. That life is present even in the unborn.
A human hand should never end a life.
I am convinced that the screams of the children whose lives have been terminated before their birth reach God’s ears.

-St. Teresa of Kolkata (67)

 

I know I am no more than a helpless little child, yet, my Jesus, it is my very helplessness which make me dare to offer myself as a victim to Your love!

-St. Therese of Lisieux

 

Prayer for Life

Father and maker of all, you adorn all creation with splendor and beauty, and fashion human lives in your image and likeness. Awaken in every heart reverence for the work of your hands, and renew among your people a readiness to nurture and sustain your precious gift of life.

Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever.

Amen.
