As Blessed Teresa of Calcutta said during her speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in 1994 "Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion." As we approach the feast of All Souls, let us not forget the millions of aborted children. We must also pray for healing and forgiveness for women, like Kayla, who have made this tragic choice. God's grace, His mercy is more than sufficient to overcome even sins as serious as the taking of innocent life.
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To you do we cry,
poor banished children of Eve.
To you do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
your eyes of mercy toward us,
and after this exile
show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb,
O clement, O loving,
O sweet Virgin Mary.
