Prayer in Sorrow for Abortion

 by Raymond Lloyd Richmond, Ph.D.

abortion is a hate crime

 
Abortion is a hate crime, and it is fueled by the mortal sin of lust. Hence, as long as anyone anywhere refuses to seek purity of heart through a total dedication to a life of chastity, there will be no end to abortion. So vow that you, at least, will present your body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, that holiness may enter the world through you. Pray for chastity.
 

The Litany of Chastity

Pray the Litany of Chastity as follows:

First, pray the Our Father.

Then recite the litany, carefully meditating on what each petition means to you personally.

Finally, say the prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel.

 

O  JESUS, that I can live in chaste purity of heart,  grant me the courage.
