Today is the 39th March for Life in Washington, DC, and the third that Jason will be going to. Our son is attending his first Youth Mass at the Verizon Center with the youth group from our parish, before heading down to the March on the Mall. Unfortunately, Nikki can’t make it as our daughter Schuyler was diagnosed with a concussion last night (for which we’d ask your prayers as well). So she’ll be doing her part by taking care of our own children, praying, and following along with the coverage of the March on EWTN.
Please join us in praying for an end to the scourge of abortion in this country and around the world–so that all human life is valued, and protected by law, from conception to natural death. With God, all things are possible–so let’s ask our God together that this will be the last March for Life we’ll ever need:
O heavenly Father, strengthen us against the mounting forces of anti-life; enlighten those who walk in this deadly way that they may see the enormity of their sin and return to the generous observance of the divine law. We pray, too, for mothers, that they may prize the great privilege of motherhood; and that they may bring up their children in the holy love and fear of God, thus saving their own immortal souls and furthering the honor and glory of their Maker. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
