Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe Day 6

Sixth Day – December 9
Mary, Mother of vocations, we beg you to multiply priestly vocations and fill the earth with religious houses which will be
light and warmth for the world, and safety in stormy nights. Beg your Son to send us many holy priests and religious. This
we ask of you, O Mother… (Here mention your requests)
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and Memorare of Our Lady of Guadalupe

Remember, O most gracious Virgin of Guadalupe, that in your heavenly apparitions on the mount of Tepeyac, you
promised to show your compassion and pity towards all who, loving and trusting you, seek your help and call upon you in
their necessities and afflictions. You promised to hear our supplications, to dry our tears, and to give us consolation and
relief.
Never has it been known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left
unaided. Inspired by this confidence, we fly to you, O Mary, ever-Virgin Mother of the true God! Though grieving under the
weight of our sins, we come to prostrate ourselves before you. We fully trust that, standing beneath your shadow and
protection, nothing will trouble or afflict us, nor do we need to fear illness or misfortune, or any other sorrow.
O Virgin of Guadalupe, you want to remain with us through your admirable Image, you who are our Mother, our health,
and our life. Placing ourselves beneath your maternal gaze, and having recourse to you in all our necessities, we need do
nothing more.
O Holy Mother of God, despise not our petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer us. Amen

Pro-Life Novena by Archbishop Fulton Sheen

 

Recently, the Vatican has approved a pro-life miracle attributed to Archbishop Fulton J Sheen.

He wrote a very powerful novena that is to be prayed for a successful nine months straight

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby [baby’s name] that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion. Amen.

Spiritually adopting a baby in danger of abortion has been a way to remind our family that 2,899 babies die every day by surgical abortion—a number that doesn’t even reflect chemical abortions—and most never receive a name.

Eighty high school students in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will be attending the annual March for Life on Jan. 24, 2020 and the annual conference of Students for Life the following day, thanks to the national organization’s $6,000 grant to the archdiocesan Office for Life and Family.

Students for Life aims to educate teenagers and young adults on “the violence of abortion, create new pro-lifers and transform campuses into places that support pregnant and parenting students,” according to its website.

Now a crowd funding effort by the archdiocesan office seeks to raise an additional $15,000 to send up to 200 more students for the events.

Visit the website GiveSendGo and help raise awareness of the sanctity of human life among young people by making a donation here.

Thankful for Life: A Thanksgiving Reflection

For many of us who look at the calendar, we realize that there is a holiday that is often times overlooked because of Christmas commercials and even decorations at many retailers.

The holiday in America has had its origins since 1565 when Spaniards settling in St. Augustine, FL celebrated mass on September 8th 1565 and it later followed with a feast with Seminole tribe. Evidently they even ate alligators.

Under George Washington, he designated a day of thanks. It was only until  Abraham Lincoln designated the last Thursday of November as a national holiday during the American Civil War.

Thanksgiving may be a time to gobble up on turkey and watch football. However,  the holiday has a deeper meaning than that.

The holiday gives us an opportunity to give thanks for what we have, especially the gifts bestowed upon each of us.

Have you taken that opportunity to thank God for family, friends, our faith, and even the gift of life?

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for so many things, but the most important thing is the gift of life. Without this precious gift, I would not be here. I have a purpose in life and I thrive to find out that purpose as I continue to make a difference.

Have a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving. May God bless you and your loved ones.

“And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:17

Thousands Gathered to Celebrate Life, Honor Courageous Witnesses and Pioneers

Since 1981, pro-lifers from all across the greater Philadelphia area to celebrate the accomplishments of the past year and look ahead to recommitting to defend life from conception until natural death as a new year is just mere weeks away. On Sunday evening, 1200 pro-lifers from newborn to great grandparents gathered for a night to remember, connect with other pro-lifers, and celebrating their first inalienable right; life.

This year, the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia area, used the evening to honor award recipients who have chartered authentic healthcare for women, stood tall against the hatred of a state representative, and leading by example on a college campus. Not only did they honor those who were rewarded for their amazing works, but they also took time to recognize the medical students who were in attendance, especially those at Drexel and Thomas Jefferson Universities.

In his open remarks, Fr. Christopher Walsh and Tom Stevens reminded everyone that everything State Rep. Brian Sims said in a viral video when attacking pro-lifers this past spring was all a lie. Pro-lifers continue to do the amazing work in not only caring for babies in the womb, but to also care for the mom and their baby for a lifetime in helping with home economics, job skills, and even their education endeavors.

In addition to the award recipients, the attendees had the opportunity to hear from two amazing speakers. The first was Dr. Monique Ruberu. Dr. Ruberu shared her experience while in residence at Hahnemann University Hospital of how she was forced into taking part in an abortion and she knew from that day that she will never do it again. She encouraged all in attendance to stand tall for their faith and the most vulnerable in our society with her.

The second speaker was Rachel Guy. She thanked everyone for all they do to defend the unborn child.  While in the womb, doctors gave a grim diagnosis to her parents who were encouraged to abort Rachel. Her parents chose life instead. Rachel was born at 1 lb. 2 oz. and became healthy during her five-month stay in the NICU. She founded His Love and Care, a ministry that connects expectant mothers with pro-life OB/GYNs and physicians.

As 2019 draws to a close, this is one of the most amazing events that every pro-lifer from conception to senior citizens look forward to when it’s an opportunity to recommit to fighting for the good in the world and even their faith no matter what our professions are in life.
