National Memorial for the Pre-Born
and their Parents
Prayer Intentions of Pope Francis
Thursday, January 22, 2015
Universal: Peace. That those from diverse religious
traditions and all people of good will may work together
for peace.
Christian believers and their pastors from numerous denominations
along with many pro-life leaders, will
gather for the 21st Annual National
Memorial for the Pre-Born and their
Mothers and Fathers at DAR Constitution Hall, 1776 D. St., NW (18th &
D St.), Washington D.C., from
8:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m.
This will be the premier prayer event marking the tragic commemoration of Roe v. Wade. We will gather in
repentance and grief, but also in hope filled, joyful determination and unity, to bring an end to abortion once and
for all!
For those who wish, there will be a Catholic Mass at
7:30 a.m. Doors open at 7:00 a.m. Admission is free, no
tickets are required, and large groups are welcome.
Let’s fill Constitution Hall with thousands of believers
to show the nation that pro-life people are not going away,
no matter how long the battle or how powerful the enemy!
The prayers and message of this service will certainly
convey that, and you wont want to miss out on the inspiration.

Evangelization: Consecrated Life. That in this year
dedicated to consecrated life, religious men and women
may rediscover the joy of following Christ and strive to
serve the poor with zeal.
Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
January 18 - 25
Pray that all Christians may work together and respect
each other’s efforts to bring the message of Christ to our
world. Please also reach out, in love, to other Christians
whom you have contact with.
World Meeting of Families
This gathering will take place this coming September
with Pope Francis presiding. We all look forward to celebrating with him The Joy of Christ...The Family’s Hope.
All of us as individuals and as families have the opportunity to prepare for this event. First we need to get to
know Jesus better. How about reading the Gospels and
speaking to Him in prayer. Secondly, we need to experience His love more deeply. How about reflecting on all
He has done for us. After we do these two things, we
have a lot to share with others about Jesus!
Novena in Reparation for Roe v. Wade
January 14 - 22
The Catholic bishops of the U.S. have designated January 22 as a special day of prayer and penance in reparation for the massive killing that has resulted from the Roe
vs. Wade Supreme Court decision (handed down January
22, 1973) which permitted abortion throughout pregnancy. Therefore, we at “Priests for Life” invite you to prepare spiritually for that day by joining us in praying the
following prayer of reparation:
God and Father of Life,
You have created every human person,
and have opened the way for each to
have eternal life.
We live in the shadow of death.
Tens of millions of your children
have been killed
because of the Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion.
Father, have mercy on us.
Heal our land,
and accept our offering of prayer and penance.
In your love for us,
turn back the scourge of abortion.
May each of us exult in hearts full of hope
and hands full of mercy
and work together to build a culture of life.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Novena en Reparación Por El Aborto
14 - 22, de enero
Los Obispos Católicos de Los Estados Unidos han
designado el día 22 de Enero como un día especial de
oración y penitencia en reparación a la matanza masiva
que ha resultado de la decisión de la Corte Suprema sobre
Roe vs. Wade (promulgada el 22 de enero de 1973) la
cual permitía el aborto durante el embarazo.
Por consiguiente, los “Sacerdotes por la Vida” los
invita a que se preparen espiritualmente para ese día
uniéndose a la Novena que comienza el 14 de Enero y
termina el 22. Los invitamos a hacer cada día, la oración
que aparece a continuación:
Oración de Reparación por Roe vs. Wade
Dios y Padre de la Vida,
Tú has creado a cada ser humano,
y has abierto el camino para que todos tengamos vida eterna.
Nosotros vivimos en sombras de
Cientos de miles de tus hijos han
sido asesinados
gracias a la decisión Roe vs. Wade
que legalizó el aborto.
Padre, ten misericordia de nosotros.
Sana a nuestra tierra
y acepta nuestra ofrenda de penitencia y oración.
En tu amor por nosotros,
termina con el horror del aborto.
Que todos nosotros nos regocijemos
con corazones llenos de esperanza
y manos llenas de misericordia
y trabajemos unidos para construir la cultura de la vida.
Te lo pedimos por Cristo, nuestro Señor. Amén.
II Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
Cuando Juan Bautista vio a Jesús que se acercaba,
anunció públicamente que el Señor era el Cordero de
Dios. Al día siguiente, Juan repitió la declaración en privado a dos de sus discípulos, lo cual puso en movimiento
una sorprendente reacción en cadena. Primero, Andrés y
otro discípulo fueron a descubrir quién era Jesús. Bastó
solo un día para que se convencieran de que el Señor era
en efecto el Mesías. Andrés quedó tan impresionado que
le llevó la noticia a su hermano Simón; y éste al conocer
personalmente a Cristo empezó una nueva vida como Pedro, la Roca.
Con la palabra de un amigo, un corazón bien dispuesto y un encuentro con Jesús: así comenzó la Iglesia.
Nosotros también llegamos a conocer a Cristo cuando
pasamos tiempo en su presencia haciendo oración, nos
encontramos con él leyendo la Palabra de Dios y escuchamos los testimonios de lo que él hace en la iglesia local.
También podemos beneficiarnos de su acción y su presencia en retiros, adorándolo frente al Santísimo Sacramento
y especialmente recibiendo la Sagrada Eucaristía.
Jesús quiere darse a conocer como el Cordero de Dios,
el Mesías, nuestro Redentor, el Hijo de Dios y mucho
más, y nos invita a participar en la misma aventura que
cautivó a los primeros discípulos, a fin de que encendamos la chispa de la fe, como una reacción en cadena, entre
nuestros amigos y familiares.
Ahora, ya comenzado el año nuevo, propongámonos
hacer algo concreto cada día para dedicarle tiempo al Señor y abrir el corazón para recibir su amor; por ejemplo,
dedica diez minutos o más a orar en privado; hazte un
examen de conciencia y pídele perdón por las faltas cometidas; dedica otros diez minutos a leer la Escritura y medita sobre el texto leído. También puedes leer libros espirituales y participar en la vida sacramental y comunitaria de
tu parroquia.
“Jesús, Señor mío, quiero conocerte más este año, para que mi
vida llegue a ser un testimonio eficaz de que tú eres el Hijo de
Dios, mi Rey y mi Salvador.”
