Respect Life

Every Life is Worth Living

In a January 13, 1984 Proclamation, President Regan designated January 22nd, as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. The date was chosen to coincide with the eleventh anniversary of Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case in the United States.  The U.S. Bishops have declared this date to be a Day of Prayer and Penance for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children.

January 22, Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children 
The General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM), no. 373, designates January 22 as a particular day of prayer and penance, called the "Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children": "In all the Dioceses of the United States of America, January 22 (or January 23, when January 22 falls on a Sunday) shall be observed as a particular day of prayer for the full restoration of the legal guarantee of the right to life and of penance for violations to the dignity of the human person committed through acts of abortion."

Spiritual Adoption of Unborn Children and Their Parents: Each year, our parishioners are asked to choose a name for an unborn baby whom they will pray for during the next nine months.

October is Respect Life Month: We have a baby shower, and bring gifts, which are then given to the Choices Pregnancy Centers of Greater Phoenix.

    Even these may forget, 
    yet I will not forget you."

Prayer for Unborn Babies
Lord of Life, we thank You for creating us, giving us life, and providing us opportunities to serve our neighbors. You command us to defend those who cannot defend themsleves. Look with mercy on our unborn brothers and sisters and spare them from abortion. Direct us to speak and act in their defense within our vocations. Turn the hearts of people from selfishness and fear to love and joyful service. Bring those responsible for the deaths of others to repentance and eternal freedom in Christ's full forgiveness. Lord, in Your Mercy, hear our prayer.  AMEN.
