Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe for the Protection of the Unborn and all Human Life

Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe for the Protection of the Unborn and all Human Life, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Madonna of the Americas, Patroness of the Unborn – Day One – 3 December

The miraculous Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is the Gospel in picture form.   She is the Immaculate Conception, as the Apocalypse describes, “a woman clothed in the sun, with the moon at her feet.”   Those who saw it realised immediately she is greater than the sun, moon, stars which they had worshipped as gods.

For people today in what is called the “New Age” she is also a sign not to worship the “forces” of nature.   But she herself is not a goddess.   She has her hands folded in prayer, her eyes looking down to humility.   To whom is she praying?   The clue is in the brooch under her neck.   It has a small cross.   But she is not only praying to God, she has God within her.   You can see the compassion in the face of the Blessed Virgin.   Hearing her tender message and gazing on this picture lesson of Catholicism, it is easy to understand that the Mother of Jesus is our Mother also! [Father Lawrence G Lovasik (1913–1986)]

The Prayer for the Protection of Human Life

is to be prayed everyday of the Novena.

First Day:

Dearest Lady of Guadalupe,
fruitful Mother of holiness,
teach me your ways
of gentleness and strength.
Hear my humble prayer
offered with heartfelt confidence
to beg this favour………..
trusting always in your intercession.
Amen

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be and the Prayer for the Protection of Human Life

Prayer for the Unborn and the Protection of all Human Life

Our Lady of Guadalupe,
we turn to you,
who are the protectress of unborn children
and ask that you intercede for us,
so that we may more firmly resolve to join you
in protecting all human life.
Let our prayers be united
to your perpetual motherly intercession
on behalf of those whose lives are threatened,
be they in the womb of their mother,
on the bed of infirmity,
or in the latter years of their life.
May our prayers
also be coupled with peaceful action
which witnesses to the goodness
and dignity of all human life,
so that our firmness of purpose may give courage
to those who are fearful and bring light
to those who are blinded by sin.
O Virgin Mother of God,
present our petitions to your Son
and ask Him to bless us with abundant life.
AmenDAY ONE - NOVENA OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE FOR THE UNBORN HUMAN LIFE 3dec2018
