water flow from his side to cleanse us of sin and restore lost innocence.
Hear the cry of each woman who mourns the loss of her child to abortion.
Forgive her sin, restore her to your grace, and still the terror of her heart with a peace beyond all understanding.
Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of all tenderness and our Mother, strengthen her faith in you.
Give her the consolation to believe that her child is now living in the Lord.
We ask this through Christ our Lord, who conquered sin and death, and who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Look to God that you may be radiant with joy and your faces may not blush for shame. In my misfortune I called, the LORD heard and saved me from all distress.
Turn from evil and do good, seek peace and pursue it. The LORD has eyes for the just and ears for their cry.
The LORD’s face is against evildoers to wipe out their memory from the earth. When the just cry out, the LORD hears and rescues them from all distress.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted, saves those whose spirit is crushed.
