Novena of Reparation for Roe vs. Wade, January 14-22


The Catholic bishops of the United States 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.

Priests for Life invites everyone to prepare spiritually for that day by joining a Novena that starts on January 14 and concludes on the 22nd. We are invited to say the prayer below each of those days.


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.
