.- On Saturday, January 31, the group “Youth For Life,” whose mission is to defend life from conception to natural death, will launch an International Day of Intercession for Peace in the World at chapels of perpetual adoration and Eucharistic devotion.
According to the L’Osservatore Romano, Youth For Life was created on October 7, 2008 “under the protection of Our Lady of the Rosary. This Apostolate appeared out of a common desire of two young Salesians to be signs of the love of God in defense of the inestimable value of life.”
Theology student Francesco De Ruvo explained that his group brings together 300 young people from Italy, Poland, the United States, Israel and Brazil. “The Apostolate ‘Youth For Life’ intends to be instrument of spreading these values, especially through the prayer of spiritual adoption, which is a prayer for unborn children who are in danger of dying in their mothers’ womb,” he said.
Spiritual adoption is done by “praying a decade of the Rosary daily accompanied by a special prayer for unborn children and their parents,” De Ruvo said.
