The US bishops have asked that at every mass a prayer be offered for the defense of human life. This request is in their pastoral plan for pro-life activities.
To help parishes fulfill this request, Priests for Life prepares an entire set of Prayers of the Faithful for each Sunday of the year, based on the readings for that Sunday.
Among these petitions each week is a prayer for an end to abortion and other forms of violence, and for the growth of a Culture of Life.
At priestsforlife.org/intercessions, you will be able to find these prayers for Mass each weekend. Please bring these to the attention of your priest and encourage him to use them for the Prayers of the Faithful. Visit priestsforlife.org/intercessions.
