Anniversary of Roe vs. Wade Decision

Mary, Mother of God, Patroness of the United States of America, pray for the unborn

Saint Joseph, Foster-Father of Christ, pray for the unborn

Saint Vincent of Saragossa, Martyr, pray for the unborn

Saint Anastasius, Martyr, pray for the unborn

May we keep the unborn children in our prayers today, along with all elderly and handicapped who may be in danger of euthanasia, or like dear Terri Shiavo, outright murder. Lord have mercy. Also, those men and women who have experienced abortion, that they may be reconciled and healed. May we pray for all attending the March for Life in Washington DC, that they may stay safe and give a courageous witness of truth to our nation and the world.

Here are a few verses from the Douay-Rheims Bible, which speak to the pro-life cause:

"Before I formed thee in the bowels of thy mother, I knew thee: and before thou camest forth out of the womb, I sanctified thee." ~Jeremias 1:5

"And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy." ~Luke 1:41

" murderer hath eternal life abiding in himself." ~1 John 3:15

Every individual is called at this time to stand up for life, to do something for the cause, even if it is simply to pray. Perhaps when God's wrath comes upon the world, places where the fight for the innocent has been staunchly waged, will be given some measure of mercy. "What goes around comes around."
