Dear Mother Mary,
You are the Immaculate Conception,
As you told St. Bernadette.
And you provided a sign
Of the life of Jesus to which you lead us
By showing her a spring of water.
To this day, that spring, in Lourdes,
Reminds people of the life and healing
That Jesus gives us in baptism.
It reminds us that life is victorious over death,
and that by the wounds of Jesus,
We are healed.
Mary, intercede for all who need healing,
Especially those who have been wounded by abortion.
We pray for moms, dads, grandparents,
Other relatives, friends, abortionists and their staff,
All of whom suffer devastation
From the abortions that they or those in their lives
Have been involved in.
May those who are wounded
But have not yet realized the connection
Between their suffering and abortion
Be given light and grace
To understand what is afflicting them
And to come to Jesus,
The Source of all healing.
Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us!
