Respect Life Month: A Daily Offering

Oct. 11, 2019 - The Catholic Church in the United States recognizes October as Respect Life Month. As Catholics, we are called to respect and defend all life from the beginning to its natural end. Most Jesuits pray the following Daily Offering every day. During this month for life, you are invited to join in asking for the strength to be a witness to the sanctity of every human life. 

Daily Offering 

God, you know the desires of our hearts
for authentic peace, justice and love.
I offer you my prayers, thoughts, words, actions,
joys, and sufferings today,
together with Jesus,
who continues to offer himself to us in the Eucharist;
who continues to reveal himself to us
in the poor, the oppressed, the marginalized, the unborn,
the most vulnerable in our world.

May your Holy Spirit be my guide and strength today
so that I may be a witness to your love, your justice, and your peace,
and to the sanctity of each human life.

Together with Mary, our mother, sister, and friend,
she who carried the Savior in her womb,
with all the communion of saints,
and with all of us who offer ourselves to you
for the good of others today, we pray: Amen.
