Pope Benedict’s Prayer for the Unborn

Lord Jesus,

You who faithfully visit and fulfill with your Presence the Church and the history of men; You who in the miraculous Sacrament of your Body and Blood render us participants in divine Life and allow us a foretaste of the joy of eternal Life; We adore and bless you.

Prostrated before You, source and lover of Life, truly present and alive among us, we beg you.

Reawaken in us respect for every unborn life, make us capable of seeing in the fruit of the maternal womb the miraculous work of the Creator, open our hearts to generously welcoming every child that comes into life.

Bless all families, sanctify the union of spouses, render fruitful their love.

Accompany the choices of legislative assemblies with the light of your Spirit,so that peoples and nations may recognize and respect the sacred nature of life, of every human life.

Guide the work of scientists and doctors, so that all progress contributes to the integral well-being of the person, and no one endures suppression or injustice.

Give creative charity to administrators and economists, so they may realize and promote sufficient conditions so that young families can serenely embrace the birth of new children.

Console the married couples who suffer because they are unable to have children and in Your goodness provide for them.

Teach us all to care for orphaned or abandoned children, so they may experience the warmth of your Charity, the consolation of your divine Heart.

Together with Mary, Your Mother, the great believer, in whose womb you took on our human nature, we wait to receive from You, our Only True Good and Savior, the strength to love and serve life, in anticipation of living forever in You, in communion with the Blessed Trinity.

    The Holy Father Pope Francis excels himself…. oops… It was Pope Benedict… sorry. I should have known… Francis is conspicuous because he is silent on the matter…maybe he is too busy, what with the likes of Kasper and Marx having his ear.. perhaps I shouldn’t be judging, we will find out soon enough.

    Point taken JH….I was referring to his lack of support for those that resist the pro aborts. I concede I could have worded it a little clearer…

    “Point taken”
    Actually, Geoff, your points are the ones I often look to for my starting points, because you were Catholic before I was born, which doesn’t mean we can’t debate now and then.

    I don’t think this cartoon (the subject of this thread) is true, as I shall attempt to explain in paragraph two. Let me start by saying that there is racism inherent in it. This cartoon is one that leads people to believe that negros are in favour of abortion. The depiction of the President as a negro cannot be helped. That’s what he is. But the subliminal message is that people like him – negroes – are in favour of abortion. You may say you don’t see that, but I do and I believe many others do also, because Obama is the Negro-In-Chief.

    As for Obama personally, he has never said that abortion is “God’s work”. Yes, he is an abortion supporter, but to say he consciously and intentionally believes abortion to be “God’s Work” is to pander to his crummiest attackers. The enemy of my enemy may be my friend, but truth is more important than winning a battle with the wrong weapons.

    As for abortion supporters, the class of people most supportive of it is the middle class – not the lower class who don’t buy birth control pills or condoms and who need babies to pad their benefit cheques, nor the upper class, who welcome babies to eventually rule in their place. The middle class is doomed because it won’t breed after having an heir and a spare.
