Novena in Reparation for Roe Vs. Wade
Prayer of Reparation
God and Father of Life,
You have created every human person,
And have opened the way for each to have eternal
life.
We live in the shadow of death.
Tens of millions of your children have been killed
Because of the Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing
abortion.
Father, have mercy on us.
Heal our land
And accept our offering of prayer and penance.
In your love for us,
Turn back the scourge of abortion.
May each of us exult in hearts full of hope
And hands full of mercy
And work together to build a culture of life.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen
