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 the child within her womb:
The life of every human body,
The life of every human soul;
The life of every newborn child
And the life of all grown old.
You held the Lord to your own heart and
Drew him so close in.
So draw us now in all our needs,
O Mother of the Life Within.

All of us are called to conversion, because conversion is a necessary disposition for entry into the Kingdom. But the conversion which above all Jesus sought to bring about in people was a change of heart. And he succeeded in bringing it about in the most unlikely of people. Many sinners heeded his call to conversion of heart, changed their lives, and made their way into the Kingdom. Others resisted his call to conversion of heart, and refused to change their lives. We need the Lord to touch our hearts with his love and compassion.

Pray for Mike Griffin, Ceann Trá Uachtar; Séamus O’Donnell, Camp.
