Msgr. Esposito’s Obituary:
“9 Days of Prayer for Life”
USCCB: JANUARY 22 DESIGNATED AS
DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE LEGAL PROTECTION OF UNBORN CHILDREN
“9 Days of Prayer for Life” began on Monday, January 14 and continues until Tuesday, January 22—the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
As Catholics, we are called to observe this day through the penitential practices of prayer, fasting and/or giving alms. We mourn the many children’s lives ended by abortion and remember in prayer those who suffer the aftermath. The Church comes together on this day to pray for the protection of all unborn children and to make reparation for abortion, trusting that the Lord hears our prayers. During the 9 Days, prayers are offered for the sanctity and protection of all human life. More information is available at www.usccb.org/january22.
Thank you for the precious gift of life.
Help us to cherish and protect this gift, even in the midst of fear, pain and suffering.
Give us love for all people, especially the vulnerable, and help us bear witness to the truth that every life is worth living.
Grant us the humility to accept help when we are in need and teach us to be merciful to all.
Through our words and actions, may others encounter the outstretched hands of your mercy.
We ask this through Christ our Lord,
Weekly Rosary for Peace & Healing
