Prayer Resources

” . . a great prayer for life is urgently needed, a prayer which will rise up throughout the world  . .  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.” – Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae (The Gospel of Life), n. 100

“Participation in the sacramental life of the Church sustains each of us. We encourage dioceses and parishes to sponsor programs of prayer and fasting as well as paraliturgical programs and to encourage Catholics to adopt programs of private prayer.”  Pastoral Plan for Pro-life Activities, USCCB
