Mourning #AlfieEvans: A prayer for life, from John Paul II

As the parents of little Alfie begin life without his physical presence, let us turn to Our Mother in prayer

O Mary,
bright dawn of the new world,
Mother of the living,
to you do we entrust the cause of life
Look down, O Mother,
upon the vast numbers
of babies not allowed to be born,
of the poor whose lives are made difficult,
of men and women
who are victims of brutal violence,
of the elderly and the sick killed
by indifference or out of misguided mercy.

Grant that all who believe in your Son
may proclaim the Gospel of life
with honesty and love
to the people of our time.

 

~ Excerpted from Evangelium Vitae
