Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children

Monday, January 23, 2017

Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.”
(Jeremiah 1:5)

The over 59 million abortions since the 1973 decision of Roe v. Wade reflect with heartbreaking magnitude what Pope Francis means by a “throwaway culture.” Every day over 4,000 babies are killed by abortion. They have so little protection only the hand of God can end this. Prayer is the best weapon to help them.

Pope Saint John Paul II, shared in his Encyclical…Evangelium Vitae, no. 100….

A great prayer for life is urgently needed, a prayer which will rise up throughout the world. Through special initiatives and in daily prayer, may an impassioned plea rise to God, the Creator and lover of life, from every Christian community, from every group and association, from every family and from the heart of every believer.

Spiritual Adoption of The Unborn

To help stop the anti-life push around the world, the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen encouraged the spiritual adoption of the unborn child. This weekend we will once again be participating in Spiritual Adoption as we adopt an unborn baby for nine months that they may be spared from abortion.

You may “adopt” a child individually or as a family. It is suggested that you name the child for whom you will be praying, which will remind you that, although you may never meet the child in this life, you truly are praying for a specific child who needs your prayers.

In October, we will have a baby shower for all of the spiritually adopted children with proceeds going to benefit the Dayspring Pregnancy Center.

 

Question and Answer Forum With Father John

Dear Father, What is the meaning of transept?

Answer... Thank you for your great question. In the history of the Roman Catholic Church churches have been constructed in the form of a cross with the vertical part, or nave, running from the sanctuary to the narthex and the main doors in back of the pews. The horizontal arm of the cross runs perpendicular to the main body of the church in front of the sanctuary. This aisle running from left to right is called the transept. It is the aisle in front of the pews. In large cathedrals it often includes side chapels and stained glass windows.
