The pro-life movement “Human Life International” is inaugurating “A Day of Prayer and Reparation for the Murder and Abuse of Unborn Children” on May 31. The prayer is written by Fr. Shenan J. Boquet. It is against the “massacre” of abortion and the exploitation of unborn children by harvesting of their tissues and body parts.
Prayer of Reparation for the Murder and Abuse of Unborn Children
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, You are the unique and indivisible principle of the creation of human life. From the first moment, each human soul bears Your image. In the eyes of Your Divine Majesty, humanity today is burdened with the unspeakable guilt of the genocide of the unborn, instigated by Satan. “A murderer from the beginning,” the evil one is not satisfied alone with destroying nascent human life but inflicts additional indignities by exploiting and commercializing the cells and body parts of murdered unborn children, expanding the culture of death by unimaginable proportions.
Compassionate God, whom we have so grievously offended, help us amend our ways through acts of penance and reparation for the manifold crimes against life. Help us change hearts, minds, and laws to respect, love, defend, and serve human dignity. Help us end the industrial murder of unborn children whose bodies are abused, treated as commodities, scavenged, and denied the respect due to any person. Help us courageously witness to the incomparable worth and sanctity of each unborn child.
Through the hands of Mary, Mother of God, and the intercession of St. Elizabeth and St. John the Baptist, in union with the inexhaustible expiating power of Christ’s redemptive sacrifice, I offer to Your Majesty this act of reparation. With a contrite heart and humble spirit, I come before You, O God, and offer You acts of penance and reparation for these sins that cry out to heaven. Humbly hear my supplication and have mercy. Amen.
