Day of Prayer for Human Life


Day for Life is the day in the Church’s year dedicated to raising awareness about the meaning and value of human life at every stage and in every condition. The Church teaches that life is to be nurtured from conception to natural death.

On this Day for Life 2018,

You have called into being life of every kind;

-        Fill us with a desire to cherish life in all its forms.

-        Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

-        We pray that we, as the Church, will continue to defend victims of human trafficking and promote the dignity of each human life.

-        Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
