God our Father,
Printed with permission from Priests for Life.
In you we find the fullness of life and love,
And the truth that they belong together.
In you we find the meaning of marriage,
Of the human body,
And of our responsibility to be open to life.
As we approach the anniversary of Pope Paul’s document on human life,
Bless your entire Church with a new generosity.
We rejoice that you are the Lord of our lives and our freedom,
Of birth and death and everything in between.
Keep us strong in saying “Yes” to life
And “Yes” to you.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
