A Prayer on the Day of the March for Life

Virgin of Guadalupe,
Patroness of unborn children,
we implore your intercession
for every child at risk of abortion.
Help expectant parents to welcome from God
the priceless gift of their child’s life.
Console parents who have lost that gift
through abortion,
and lead them to forgiveness and healing
through the Divine Mercy of your Son.
Teach us to cherish
and to care for family and friends
until God calls them home.
Help us never to see others as burdens.
Guide our public officials
to defend each and every human life
through just laws.
Inspire us all to bring our faith into public life,
to speak for those who have no voice.

We ask this in the name of your Son,
Jesus Christ, who is Love and Mercy itself.

I am not very sure if the Virgin of Guadalupe endorses political views. One day, when I attended some lecture about the Virgin of Guadalupe, the speaker said that the incarnation of the undesired children, and the unification of the society were the values of the apparitions of the Virgin.

Best regards.

This is primarily a life and social justice issue.

Thanks Timothy, I will pray this prayer, expecting the mercy and the grace of God flows over all of us, especially, the unborn child, through the Virgin.
