Two Anniversaries: Swiss Guard Foundation and Roe v. Wade
edit_button

Today we celebrate two anniversaries.

First, today is the anniversary of the founding of the Swiss Guard 470 years ago. This group is composed of Swiss, Catholic men, who guard the Pope. I've always loved seeing them on television.

Second, on a more somber note, today is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in 1973. Please pray for the unborn. As Catholics we believe life exists from conception to natural death. Please pray for the unborn with me:

Heavenly Father, in Your love for us, protect against the wickedness of the devil, those helpless little ones to whom You have given the gift of life.Touch with pity the hearts of those women pregnant in our world today who are not thinking of motherhood.Help them to see that the child they carry is made in Your image - as well as theirs - made for eternal life.Dispel their fear and selfishness and give them true womanly hearts to love their babies and give them birth and all the needed care that a mother can give.We ask this through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen.
