Please join the Friars in praying in preparation for SANCTITY of LIFE DAY though the Novena prayer to St. Gianna Beretta Molla.
"O GOD, CREATOR AND LOVER OF MANKIND, you were close to Gianna Beretta when, affected by illness, she was in the painful dilemma to choose between her own life and the life of the child whom she was carrying in herself, a gift long awaited.
Trusting You alone, and aware of your commandment to respect human life, Gianna found the courage to do her duty as a mother and say "Yes" to the new life of her baby, generously sacrificing her own.
Through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Jesus, and after the example of Gianna, inspire all mothers to welcome with love the sparkle of a new life. Help us all to have a great respect for human life.
Grant us the grace we want...(here add our own intentions) and the joy to find an inspiration in your servant Gianna who as a model spouse and mother after the example of Christ, gave up her life for the life of others.
