Father, you have entrusted to your Church
The ministry of reconciliation,
Through the power of the Blood of Christ.
He is the Author of Life,
The Conqueror of sin and death,
The Divine Physician who heals every wound.
May your Church stand as a witness in every land
To the saving power of your truth
And to the healing power of your love.
Grant, O Lord, that as disciples of Christ gather In communities around the world,
They may receive a deeper awareness
Of how abortion has wounded them
And a deeper experience Of how you can heal them.
Let the power of your Word
And the workings of your grace
Lead to the healing of all their relationships.
May all your sons and daughters,
As the People of Life,
Extend to the whole world
The urgent invitation to salvation and healing.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
