Sunday October 4th is designated as a Day for Life. This day is celebrated annually by the Catholic Church in Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. It is a day dedicated to raising awareness about the meaning and value of human life at every stage and in every condition.
A Prayer to Mary, Mother of the Life Within
O Mary, Mother of the Life Within, all life we entrust to you;
the life of every expectant mother and child within her womb:
The life of every human body, the life of every human soul;
the life of every new born child and the life of all grown old.
You held the Lord close to your own heart and drew him so close in.
So draw us now in all our needs, O Mother of the Life Within.
