John Paul II’s magnificent Encyclical on the sacredness of human life - Evangelium Vitae - The Gospel of Life - was released in Rome 25 years ago, on the Feast of the Annunciation, March 25, 1995.
The Holy Father makes “a precise and vigorous reaffirmation of the value of human life and its inviolability,” and gives clear reasons why abortion and euthanasia are preeminent moral emergencies of our time.
Fr. Frank Pavone as Pastoral Director of Rachel’s Vineyard and the Silent No More Awareness Campaign has composed this prayer booklet based on the truth that are all wounded by abortion, whether we realize it or not (see AbortionShockwaves.com).
The prayers are for those praying for the wounded and for the wounded praying for themselves. Prayer is not a substitute for the hard work of grieving and reconciliation, but is a necessary help to that process.
