Lenten Resources

The Lenten season is a time of repentance, and we as a nation and as individuals need to first and foremost repent of abortion, whether we've had direct involvement in it, or have simply not done enough to stop it. I invite you to use these resources for prayer and reflection.

In the Palm of His Hand Prayer Booklet
This popular little prayer book by Fr. Frank Pavone is perfect to use at home or at prayer in front of abortion facilities. It has been revised and expanded to include your favorite novenas, found at PrayerCampaign.org, post-abortion healing prayers and more. 58 pages.

In the Heart of His Mercy Prayer Booklet
Fr. Frank Pavone as Pastoral Director of Rachel’s Vineyard and the Silent No More Awareness Campaign has composed this prayer booklet based on the truth that are all wounded by abortion, whether we realize it or not (see AbortionShockwaves.com). The prayers are for those praying for the wounded and for the wounded praying for themselves. Prayer is not a substitute for the hard work of grieving and reconciliation, but is a necessary help to that process.

In the Light of His Word Prayer Booklet
Fr. Frank Pavone takes key themes in God’s Word as the launching point for interceding for our brothers and sisters in the womb. These launching points are outlined in more detail in two key sources: The Gospel of Life by Saint John Paul II, and my brochure, The Bible’s Teaching Against Abortion. Scripture quotes are mostly from the New American Bible translation.

In the Power of His Spirit Prayer Booklet
Prayers by Fr. Frank Pavone invoking the Holy Spirit, according to his many roles and gifts in our lives and in the world, to end abortion and equip God’s people to protect the children in the womb.

The Way of the Cross for Families (Joint Vatican-Priests for Life Publication)
The Way of the Cross for Families is a collaborative effort of Priests for Life and the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for the Family. This is a special gift and blessing for families, because there is a deep connection between the mysteries of Our Lord’s Passion and the mystery of the family. This booklet is 55 pages and includes colorful illustrations.
