Priests for Life begins tomorrow a Novena of Prayer in preparation for the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This Assumption prayer for life can be found at priestsforlife.org. The prayer reminds us that this feast is about the victory of life over death, and renews our confidence in the power of that victory as we battle evils like abortion.
The prayer proclaims the hope of the Gospel: that every human life, in body and soul, be seated on the throne of God. The prayer also asks that we will grow in reverence for the human body, which is a temple of the Holy Spirit.
