For a friend from work

The other day, a random conversation I was having with a friend led to her telling she’d had abortions [plural, but unsure how many]. She told me this was about 30 odd years ago. She didn’t express any outward sorrorw or guilt, and simply said she was too fertile.

Anyway, while she didn’t express such sorrow et al, it made me wonder why she just dropped it into the conversation along with the phrase “I don’t know why I’m telling you, you’re Catholic”.

Anyway, please pray for my friend, [who’s also a bit of a wiccan type hippy thingie religion]. Pray that she comes to find the humanity of those children she had killed, and please pray that she finds our Lord Jesus before its too late.

I will pray for your friend and her children in heaven… =/

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy Kingdom come
Thy Will be done
On Earth as it is in Heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
AMEN

Hail Mary Full of Grace
The Lord is with thee
Blessed art thou among women
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus
Holy Mary, Mother of God
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death
AMEN

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
AMEN

In the name of The Father and The Son and The Holy Spirit
AMEN

Praying for your co-worker …

May your friend from work have a conversion of heart and obtain contrition and pardon for her sins. May she come to see abortion as the evil that it is, and become pro-life. Amen.
