“Let Mary’s soul be in each of you to proclaim the greatness of the Lord.
Let her spirit be in each to rejoice in the Lord.”
– St. Ambrose of Milan
Pray the Novena starting on January 21st – January is the month the Church prays in a special way for the protection of human life, especially for unborn children, in the novena for life.
– Father and maker of all, you adorn all creation with splendor and beauty, and fashion human lives in your image and likeness.
– Awaken in every heart reverence for the work of your hands, and renew among your people a readiness to nurture and sustain your precious gift of life.
– Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen
End with Concluding Prayers
Once you have said the novena prayer, please say one Our Father, three Hail Mary’s and one Glory Be.
