Walk For Life West Coast 2006

Father Joseph Fessio, SJ, Founder of Ignatius Press and Provost of Ave Maria University was there to accept the St. Gianna Molla Award in behalf of James Holman, who was the leading contributor in helping place the parental notification measure on the ballot, Proposition 73.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Unborn, pray for us!

Father Francis Mary Stone, MFVA, host of EWTN's "Life on the Rock" seen here walking for life!

For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and the whole world!

Over the hill and through the woods... our legs were burning... but we're doing it for life, from conception to natural death! For the unborn babies and for the protection and sanctity of life!

We'll see you next year, God willing!

"...the greatness of this little unborn human creature, formed by God's hands and surrounded by his love." It is a biblical tribute to the human being from the first moment of his existence.

...God already sees the entire future of that embryo, still an 'unformed substance,' is extremely powerful. The days which that creature will live and fill with deeds throughout his earthly existence are already written in the Lord's book of life."
- Pope Benedict XVI

Prayer for the Helpless Unborn

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. (EWTN coverage of March for Life)

Yes Carmel, the gift of life should never be denied to anyone especially the helpless unborn. There were about 15,000 walkers including little children, who were there to pray together.
