Spiritual Adoption

“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.”

~ Jeremiah 1:5

In the early 70’s a ruling that legalized abortion during any term of the 9-month pregnancy was set into law.  This ruling was Roe v. Wade.  This ruling is the reason for more than a million abortions to have been committed every year in the United States alone.

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen encouraged a program called Spiritual Adoption to help sway the pro-choice movement around the world.  This is where one prays for an unknown child’s life that it he, or she, is spared the torture of abortion and able to live a fulfilling life.

A person takes on the responsibility to pray on a daily basis for a 9 month period by saying the following prayer.

“Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of [baby’s name] the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.” ` Prayer of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

Prayer is a powerful tool against evil and can make the difference between a baby living a full life or one ended in tragedy. Prayers also give the parents a spiritual support that makes all the difference in their decision process.

Please make a difference in the world and join us by spiritually adopting a baby in need today!

The Sacraments are Jesus Christ's presence in us. So it is important for us to go to Confession and receive Holy Communion.
