Consecration to Jesus through Mary
Since many of our Maronite parishes crown Our Lady on Mother's Day, we are inviting you to do consecration to Our Lady on Mother's Day even though the tradition is to do the consecration on a Marian Feast. To end it on May 9th, we will begin on April 6th. Click here for more details about the consecration (readings, podcast, optional zoom meetings..)
Prayers for Eucharistic Adoration
This booklet was created and used at the Maronite Vigil For Life in past years. It can be downloaded as Word document, edited as needed and printed as a booklet. There are two versions: - one with the Gospel of the Hemorrhaging woman in case Eucharistic Healing service will take place. It can be accessed by clicking here. - one without the Gospel and the healing service. It can be accessed here.
Sorrowful Mysteries for Life
The Sorrowful Mysteries For Life along with the litany in response to abortion and other prayers for Life can be downloaded as pdf or Microsoft Word .
Prayer is the foundation of all that we do in defense of human life. Say a short prayer or blessing. Meditate or ask God's intercession. Devote some time to pray a Holy Hour, or commit to a novena or Stations of the Cross. Special prayers are called for those who have lost a child due to miscarriage, abortion or other cause. The U.S. Bishops called for pro-life petitions at every Mass in the "Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities." Our Word of Life series is an easy way to do this. Every January, thousands of pilgrims travel to Washington to pray together for an end to abortion at the National Prayer Vigil for Life. If you can't join us, consider holding your own vigil for the unborn. There's even a "Mass For Giving Thanks to God for the Gift of Human Life" in the new Roman Missal that can be used on the annual day of penance on January 22. Everyone can find a way to praise and thank God for the gift of life and to ask for protection for each sacred human life.
40 Days for Life is an internationally coordinated 40-day campaign that aims to end abortion locally through prayer and fasting, community outreach, and a peaceful all-day vigil in front of abortion businesses.
