On this horrible anniversary day....

Thank you Pope John Paul the Great for your prayer to the blessed Virgin, Our Lady of Guadalupe Patroness of the unborn. I also ask that those who are paralyzed by fear, those precious young girls, women and even older women being forced to abort the babies in their wombs that they would fly to your protection, and seek your intercession and find peace, rest and a place for their fear-ridden souls, churning with anxiety. For all those who have aborted a baby, please KNOW this...God LOVES YOU and is extending his Divine Mercy to you always. He will not leave you, or forsake you. Even if you've ended the life of your baby for plain selfish reasons, or in ignorance, trust in Him. Find a Crisis Pregnancy Center in your area and call them or find a way to get there for help, from women who truly care for you. If you're still thinking about aborting your baby, please don't do it. Please listen to Mary's plea for your baby and you. She is your Mother who loves you. Run to her and find help from those that love her, too.

This is the anniversary of the worst decision of a court or government ever in the history of the world. Let us pray to Our Lady of Guadalupe and our Beloved Pope John Paul the Great for the lives of unborn babies, and those who've lost their lived at the hand of abortionists. Pray also for those abortionists and all involved in abortuaries that they will see the light, and the Light of Truth will penetrate their darkened minds and souls. Amen.

Eternal Father I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. In atonement for our sins, and those of the whole world. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have Mercy on us and on the whole world.

Prayer to the Virgin of Guadalupe

Immaculate Virgin
Mother of the true God
and Mother of the Church
from this spot you have manifested
your clemency and your compassion
for all who have recourse to your protection.
Hear the prayer we address to you,
with filial confidence,
and present it to you Son, Jesus,
our only Redeemer.

Mother of Mercy
Teacher of hidden and silent sacrifice,
on this day we sinners consecrate to you,
who come to meet us, all our being
and all our love.

We also consecrate to you
our life,
our work,
our joys,
our infirmities,
and our sorrows

Grant to our peoples
peace, justice and prosperity,
so that we may entrust to your care,
our Lady and our Mother,
all that we have and all that we are.

We wish to be completely yours
and to follow together with you the path
of total fidelity to Jesus Christ
in His Church:
hold us ever lovingly by the hand.

O, Virgin of Guadalupe,
Mother of the Americas
we pray to you for all our bishops
that they may lead the faithful along the paths
of a dedicated Christian life
and of love and service for God and souls.

See how great is the harvest,
and intercede with the Lord
that he will imbue the whole people of God
with a hunger for holiness
and bestow abundant vocations
of priests and religious,
who are strong in their faith
and zealous dispensers of the mysteries of God.

Grant to our homes the grace of loving
and respecting life in its beginnings,
with the same love with which you
conceived in your womb
the life of the Son of God.

Blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of fair love,
protect our families
so that they may always be united
and bless the upbringing of our children.

Our Hope,
look upon us with pity,
teach us to go continually to Jesus,
and if we fall,
help us to rise again and return to Him
through the confession of our faults
and our sins in the Sacrament of Penance,
which gives peace to the soul.

We beg you to grant us a great love
for all the Holy Sacraments,
which are, as it were, the signs
that your Son left us on earth.

Thus Most Holy Mother,
with the peace of God in our consciences,
with our hearts free from evil and hatred,
we will be able to bring to all others
true joy and true peace,
which come to us
from your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
lives and reigns for ever and ever.

John Paul II
