Choose Life

Published March 12, 2018 by D in News

Choose Life 2018 is an initiative of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference. It promotes the Catholic Church’s teaching on the dignity and value of every human life. We offer dioceses, parishes and members of the faithful pro-life material and resources to encourage discussion in families on the value of every human life. We encourage you to use and share our content to promote a culture of life and a civilisation of love. Choose Life!

Lenten Pro-life Prayer
We thank you for this season of grace and light.
We know that sin has blinded us.
Draw us ever closer to you, in prayer and penance.
Since you, O God, are light itself,
Give all your people a clearer understanding
Of what is sin, and what is virtue.
Grant in particular that we may see, as never before,
The profound dignity of every human life,
Including the vulnerable unborn children.
Give us grace to defend
Our brothers and sisters in the womb
By our prayers, our words,
And our self-sacrificing actions.
We make this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.
