Pray for the Unborn

Monstrance in the Sacred Heart Chapel, with the Host

The Holy Father has asked all Catholics to pray, especially today on the Vigil of the beginning of Advent, for all infants in the womb.  He refers to "nascent life," indicating that even at the moment of conception, there is a new human life -- a child of God -- who is to be protected and prayed for.

Offer your rosary prayers today for this intention, and in union with the Pope.  It's especially effective to pray before the Blessed Sacrament.  There are many Adoration Chapels, including our own Sacred Heart Chapel, where the Lord Jesus Christ is waiting for us to come for adoration and prayer.
