Prayer for Reverence for Life Sunday, Jan. 31, 2021

Bishop Mark Hagemoen has declared Sunday, Jan. 31, 2021 as Reverence for Life Sunday in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon.

 

Almighty God, giver of all that is good, we thank you for the precious gift of human life: For life in the womb, coming from your creative power; for the life of children, making us glad with their freshness and promise; for the life of young people, hoping for a better world; for the life of people who are disabled, teaching us that every life has value; for the life of the elderly, witnessing to the ageless values of patience and wisdom. Like Blessed Mary, may we always say “yes” to Your gift. Help us to realize the sacredness of human life and to respect and cherish it from conception to its natural end. And bring us at last, O Father, to the fullness of eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. +Amen
