"...is it surprising that today we have become so morally blind (for wickedness blinds) that we save the baby whales at great cost, and murder millions of unborn children?"
~ Alice von Hildebrand, The Privilege of Being a Woman, p.24
Heavenly Father, in Your love for us, protect against the wickedness of the devil, those helpless little ones to whom You have given
the gift of life. Touch with pity the hearts of those women pregnant in our world today who are not thinking of motherhood. Help them
to see that the child they carry is made in Your image - as well as theirs - made for eternnal life. Dispel their fear and selfishness
and give them true womanly hearts to love their babies and give them birth and all the needed care that a mother alone can give. We
ask this through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever
and ever, Amen.
