THE WOMB

 
"Look! There is the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world!" —John 1:29
 

God's Servant was formed from the womb (Is 49:5). The Lord "knitted" us in our mothers' wombs (Ps 139:13). From our mothers' wombs, the Lord gave us our names (see Is 49:1). The Lord is working with children in the womb both physically and spiritually.

This means:

  • We should pray for and with children in the womb.
  • Pregnant mothers should receive Holy Communion, and their babies in the womb will share in those Communions.
  • We should pray and fast to protect children in the womb from abortion (see The Gospel of Life, Pope John Paul II, 100).
  • We should invite parents who have aborted their children to come to Jesus to receive forgiveness and healing.
  • We should ask aborted babies to pray for us.
  • Most of all, we must invite everyone to give their lives totally to Jesus, the Way, the Truth, and the Life (Jn 14:6). Jesus is our only Savior, Lord, and Hope.
 
Prayer: Father, give me the grace to die if necessary to save the lives of children in the wombs.
Promise: "It is He Who is to baptize with the Holy Spirit." —Jn 1:33
Praise: Praise Jesus, the Resurrection and the Life! (Jn 11:25) Praise You, Jesus, enthroned in glory at the right hand of the Father. Praise You, Jesus, victorious Lamb of God!
 
(See our leaflets, Hope and Healing Through Aborted Children, How to Stop Abortion, and Abortion and Your Taxes.)
