Father of Life and of Love,
We turn to you today in union with the Church throughout the world,
As she observes the Day of Life during this Year of Faith.
We thank you for conquering death
Through the death and resurrection of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
We ask you to deepen the “Yes” of our Faith,
Which is a “Yes” to Jesus Christ and a “Yes” to every human life.
Enable us to help others to say that “Yes,”
And to reject the evils of abortion, euthanasia, and every attack on life.
Bless our Holy Father and all those gathered in Rome for the Day of Life.
Deepen our commitment
To proclaim, celebrate, and serve the Gospel of Life,
With the confidence that comes from knowing
That the kingdom of death has already been conquered
And that even now we share that life which is eternal.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
