“Prayer is the Foundation of all that we do in defense of human life. Our efforts, whether education, pastoral, or legislative, will be less than truly fruitful if we do not change hearts and if we do not ourselves be overcome by our own spiritual blindness.” – from a “Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities: A Campaign in Support of Life” 


God, author of all life,
bless, we pray, this unborn child;
give constant protection
and grant a healthy birth
that is the sign of our rebirth one day
into the eternal rejoicing of heaven…
~ excerpt from the new Vatican-Approved
Prayer of Blessing for Unborn Child
