Novena of Reparation for Roe vs. Wade/Abortions Begins January 14th


STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. –
Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, has invited every Catholic parish, school and individual to join him in praying a Novena of Reparation for abortion.

The nine days of prayer will begin today and conclude Jan. 22, the 38th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decisions that legalized abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy.

The Catholic bishops of the United States have designated Jan. 22 as a special day of prayer and penance in reparation for the 50 million lives lost to abortion since that day. The annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., will take place this year on Jan. 24.

Prayer of Reparation (Pray Daily for 9 days)

God and Father of Life,
You have created every human person,
And have opened the way for each to have eternal life.

We live in the shadow of death.
Tens of millions of your children have been killed
because of the Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion.

Father, have mercy on us.
Heal our land
And accept our offering of prayer and penance.
In your love for us,
Turn back the scourge of abortion.

May each of us exult in hearts full of hope
And hands full of mercy
And work together to build a culture of life.

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
