Lord our God, when your Son was dying on the altar of the cross, he gave us as our mother the one he had chosen to be his own mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary; grant that we who call upon the holy name of Mary, our mother, with confidence in her protection may receive strength and comfort in all our needs.

Teen Corner

At the wedding feast at Cana, Mary observed a human need and

presented it to Jesus, confident that Jesus would respond. We follow

Mary’s example when we bring our needs and the needs of our world to

God in prayer, confident that God will answer our prayers in

extraordinary ways.

Co-Authors of the recently released book

Unplanned Grace: A Compassionate Conversation on Life and Choice

In this book, the authors challenge the myth that abortion is the best or only option for some women,
as well as equipping readers to support abortion-vulnerable women with love that values life in every way. 

Both women are also representatives of Save The Storks,
a pro-life organization that has over 60 
state-of-the-art mobile medical clinics across the country.


 On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court, through its companion cases Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton,
legalized abortion in every state in our country throughout all nine months of pregnancy.

The Hour for Life is held each year

• to remember the unborn children and their mothers who have died as a result of those decisions;
• to pray for the women and men who have been harmed by those tragic decisions;
• to re-encourage those who work to protect the right to life of the pre-born children;
• to invite and prepare more people to become active in the right to life movement.

How can we protect our children when we don't respect life?

Mother Teresa  I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts.--Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God, obeying his voice, and holding fast to him. For that will mean life for you, a long life for you to live on the land which the LORD swore to your ancestors, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give to them. Dt 30:19-20

Let us Pray: Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

PEACE & JUSTICE
 

Remember to pray for peace every day at noon.

 

“Peace I leave with you,
My peace I give to you;
not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.”

--John 14:27

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; 
there are different forms of service but the same Lord;
there are different workings but the same God
who produces all of them in everyone
... distributing them individually to each person as he wishes
.
1 Cor 12:4-11

 

COLLECT PRAYER

 

Almighty ever-living God,
who govern all things, both in heaven and on earth,
mercifully hear the pleading of your people
and bestow your peace on our times.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.
Amen

Our Holy Father's Prayer Intention for January:

For true human fraternity: We pray for all those suffering from religious discrimination and persecution; may their own rights and dignity be recognized, which originate from being brothers and sisters in the human family.

" Above all, let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining.  As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen ."
-- 1 Peter 4:8-11
