Praying for the Protection of Life in Ireland

Day 5 of the 

40 Days Prayer and Fasting 

for the Protection of the Unborn 
against abortion legislation in Ireland

Please continue to 
Pray with an attitude of 
Trust, Faith and Hope
in God who can do the impossible. 

Scripture Reflections:

Matthew 18: 6-7 
If any of you should cause one of these
little ones who believe in me to stumble and fall,
it would be better for you to be thrown into 
the sea with a great millstone around your neck.

Matthew 18: 10 
See that you do not despise any of these little ones,
for I tell you: their angels in Heaven continually
see the face of my Heavenly Father. 

Jesus told St. Faustina, "I desire that you know more profoundly the love that burns in My Heart for souls, and you will understand this when you meditate upon My Passion. Call upon My mercy on behalf of sinners; I desire their salvation. When you say this prayer, with a contrite heart and with faith on behalf of some sinner, I will give him the grace of conversion. This is the prayer: “O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of Mercy for us, I trust in You.(Diary 186-187)

Naming Ceremony for the Gosnell Babies - Part 1: Fr. Frank Pavone's Homily

  O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus 
as a Fount of Mercy for us, 
I Trust in You. 

 Lord have mercy on us and on our world for the grave sin of abortion.

Please support us in Prayer and Penance for 40 Days to keep abortion out of Ireland.

Archbishop Eamon Martin, Coadjutor Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Armagh has asked us to support this important initiative at his homily in Dundalk, Co. Louth, when he said the followiing: 

Not long before he died, Pope John Paul told the young people in Rome, ‘There is no authentic celebration or adoration of the Eucharist that does not lead to mission’.  In a world where human life itself is under attack, we have a particular and critical mission.  The other day a member of the Apostolate of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration told me – I am offering up my holy hour each week before the Blessed Sacrament so that, even at this late stage, the government may have a change of heart and not introduce legislation for abortion into our country. 

The organisation ‘Precious Life’ is calling on all of us to offer forty days of prayer and fasting from the 12 May for the protection of unborn children in this country. I support these initiatives, because if we are in ‘communion’ with Christ, the Bread of Life, at Mass or during adoration, then we are also ‘commissioned’ to bring the Good News about Life out there into our community. How can we be in communion with the Bread of Life at Mass or here tonight and not speak the ‘Gospel of Life’ in our daily lives, especially these days when unborn human life is under such a direct threat in our country?

If you are on Facebook please go to Precious Life Facebook and like their page and give them your support.  They are a wonderful organisation that not only acts against abortion but also encourages Prayer and Penance which is vital against the spirits of darkness in abortion and euthanasia. 

We can pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet every day against this evil and pray it a few times a day during this forty days especially along with other prayers.  
Nothing is impossible to God.  
Have Faith and Trust in Him who can do all things.
