Knights of Columbus and Sisters of Life Urge Prayer for Life

May 5, 2010
Monday at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City, Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York initiated a National Prayer Campaign for Life in the United States.
The initiative is co-sponsored by the Sisters of Life and the Knights of Columbus.
The announcement came as part of a memorial Mass for John Cardinal O’Connor, a former Archbishop of New York and champion of life who died 10 years ago.
Though this is an American initiative, there is no reason why we in Canada can't take up its cause -- particularly with our annual March for Life happening in Ottawa, Thursday, May 13th 2010.
All are being invited to join in raising up a great prayer for life the daily recitation of this prayer:
onourkneesEternal Father, Source of Life,
strengthen us with your Holy Spirit
to receive the abundance of life you have promised.
Open our hearts to see and desire
the beauty of your plan for life and love.
Make our love generous and self-giving so that we may be blessed with joy.
Grant us great trust in your mercy.
Forgive us for not receiving your gift of life
and heal us from the effects of the culture of death.
Instill in us and all people reverence for every human life.
Inspire and protect our efforts on behalf of those most vulnerable
especially the unborn, the sick and the elderly.
We ask this in the Name of Jesus,
who by His Cross makes all things new. Amen.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.
