Jesus Healer of Wounds and Source of Mercy, your hands embraced and welcomed little children. As we look on your hands painfully nailed to the cross, extend your Divine Mercy to the tens of millions of women and men in our nation who are wounded from their participation in abortions. Help us as a Church to recognize the unique pain that abortion brings to individuals, families, and our society. May the wounds of your hands on the cross remind us each day of your steadfast love for us as we seek to build a culture of life and be faithful instruments of your hope and healing.
Prayer for Healing
Eternal Father, Source of all mercy and love, out of love for us you sent you Son, and willed that blood and water flow from his side to cleanse us of sin and restore lost innocence. Hear the cry of each woman who mourns the loss of her child to abortion. Forgive her sin, restore her to your grace, and still the terror of her heart with peace beyond all understanding. Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of all tenderness and our Mother, strengthen her faith in you. Give her the consolidation to believe that her child is now living in the Lord. We ask this through Christ our Lord, who conquered sin and death, and who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
