Novena for Life

May 5 through May 13, 2015

Knights of Columbus councils across the country are encouraging prayer for the respect and protection of every human life. Supporting this goal, the Knights of Columbus at
St. Junipero Serra Parish are sponsoring a Novena for Life from May 5 to 13, 2019.

Each day, we encourage everyone to find a quiet time to pray for the respect of all human life.  The daily prayers as ones you know, and there is a brief reflection each day
on a different aspect of human life.

This web site includes guidance for each day of the Novena.  Click below for today's prayers and reflection for the Novena for Life.  

PRAYER FOR LIFE (from Saint John Paul II, 1995)

O Mary, bright dawn of the new world, Mother of the living, to you do we entrust the cause of life:  Look down, O Mother, upon the vast numbers of babies not allowed to be born, of the poor whose lives are made difficult, of men and women who are victims of brutal violence, of the elderly and the sick killed by indifference or out of misguided mercy.

Grant that all who believe in your Son may proclaim the Gospel of life with honesty and love to the people of our time.  Obtain for them the grace to accept that Gospel as a gift ever new, the joy of celebrating it with gratitude throughout their lives and the courage to bear witness to it resolutely, in order to build, together with all people of good will, the civilization of truth and love, to the praise and glory of God, the Creator and lover of life.
