Our Lady Defender of the Innocents

Lady of Guadalupe, we turn to you who are the protectress
of unborn children and ask that you intercede for us, so
that we may more firmly resolve to join you in protecting
all human life. Let our prayers be united to your
perpetual motherly intercession on behalf of those whose
lives are threatened, be they in the womb of their
mother, on the bed of infirmity, or in the latter years
of their life. May our prayers also be coupled with
peaceful action, which witnesses to the goodness and
dignity of all human life, so that our firmness of
purpose may give courage to those who are fearful and
bring light to those who are blinded by sin. Encourage
those who will be involved in the March for Life; help
them to walk closely with God and to give voice to the
cry of the oppressed, in order to remind our nation of
its commitment to life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness for all people. O Virgin Mother of God, present
our petitions to your Son and ask Him to bless us with
abundant life. Amen
