December 1, 9 am-10 am
Catholics across the country will be turning to prayer on Wednesday, December 1 by participating in Eucharistic Adoration in an effort to end abortion. On this date, the U.S. Supreme Court will be listening to oral arguments in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health. Pro-life advocates are hoping the Court rules to keep Mississippi’s ban on abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Such a ruling could also affect efforts to overturn Roe vs. Wade, the federal law that legalized abortion in this country.
At St. Mark’s, the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed on the altar for Eucharistic Adoration from 9 am to 10 am. Parishioners are urged to pray that the sacredness of every human life be protected and upheld, both in the law and in the culture. United in prayer, we will also pray a Pro-life rosary together.
Here is a prayer that will be available at the back of the church for all those who will be praying on December 1:
Our Lady of Guadalupe, protectress of unborn children, we ask that you intercede for us, so that the sacredness of every human life is protected and upheld, both in the law and in the culture. Let our prayers be united to your perpetual motherly intercession on behalf of those whose lives are threatened, particularly those in the wombs of their mothers. May our prayers also be coupled with peaceful action, which witnesses to the goodness and dignity of all human life. Amen.
