of the Rosary
for you index
Our Lady of Guadalupe is known as the 'Patroness of the Unborn'. In the image that miraculously appeared on the tilma of Juan Diego in what is now known as Mexico City, she is pregnant.
Her head is bowed and her hands are in prayer. This tells us she is not a goddess but bowing to another, to God. In the The Canticle of Mary we are reminded, 'Holy is His Name'.

A voice in Rama was heard, lamentation and great mourning; Rachel bewailing her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not. Matthew 2:18
*CANTICLE of MARY*
My soul doth magnify the Lord and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour, For He hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden For behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed For He that is mighty hath done to me great things and Holy is His Name ....
*SCRIPTURES on LIFE*
Truly you have formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mothers womb. I give you thanks that I am fearfully, wonderfully made; wonderful are your works. My soul also you knew full well; nor was my frame unknown to you when I was made in secret, when I was fashioned in the depths of the earth. Your eyes have seen my actions; in your book they are written; my days were limited before one of them existed.
24 Thus says the LORD, your redeemer, who formed you from the womb: I am the LORD, who made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens; when I spread out the earth, who was with me?
4 The word of the LORD came to me thus: 5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you. 6 Ah, Lord GOD! I said, I know not how to speak; I am too young. 7 But the LORD answered me, Say not, I am too young. To whomever I send you, you shall go; whatever I command you, you shall speak.
FOR THE UNBORN
Heavenly Father, in your love for us, protect us
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 todaywho are not thinking of motherhood.
Help them to see that the child they carry
is made in your image as well as theirs,and 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 alone can give.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord,
who live and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever, Amen.
*MOTHER of the AMERICAS*
(excerpts from a prayer written by John Paul II
January 1979 - Mexico)
O Immaculate Virgin, Mother of the true God
and Mother of the Church, hear the prayer
that we address to you and present it to your Son, Jesus.
Grant peace, justice and prosperity to our peoples.
We wish to be entirely yours and to walk with you along the way
of complete faithfulness to Jesus Christ in His Church.
Virgin of Guadalupe, Mother of the Americas, grant to our homes
the grace of loving and respecting life in its beginnings.
Look upon us with compassion: teach us to go continually
to Jesus through a great love for all the holy Sacraments.
Thus, with our hearts free from evil and hatred, we will be able
to bring to all true joy and true peace, which comes to us
from your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who with God the Father
and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns forever and ever, Amen.
UNKNOWN CHILD WILL LIVE
Archbishop Fulton J Sheen was a great advocate of the unborn. He encouraged the spiritual adoption of an unborn child. Pray for an unborn child, one on one, one day at a time for a year, so this unknown child, whom we will probably never meet or know until we are with the Lord, will live.
Jesus shedding tears over
by Fulton J Sheen
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much.
I beg you to spare the life of the unborn child
that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.
