Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patroness of unborn children. Her feast day is Tuesday, Dec. 12th.
Everyone is encouraged to make a novena for the protection of unborn babies by saying the following prayer each day for the nine days leading up to her feast day, beginning on Monday, December 4th.
Virgin of Guadalupe, patroness of unborn children, we implore your intercession for every child at risk of abortion.
Help expectant parents to welcome from God the priceless gift of their child’s life.
Console parents who have lost that gift through abortion, and lead them to forgiveness and healing through the Divine mercy of Your Son.
Teach us to cherish and care for family and friends until God calls them home.
Help us never to see others as burdens.
Guide our public officials to defend each and every human life through just laws.
Inspire us all to bring our faith into public life, to speak for those who have no voice.
We ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, Who is love and mercy itself.
