Our Lady of Guadalupe is the Patroness of the Pro-life Movement. In preparation for her Feast day, Priests for Life invites all believers to join in a special novena for life from December 3 through 11th

Pray this prayer prior to the daily prayer

Our Lady of Guadalupe, according to your message in Mexico, I venerate you as "The Virgin Mother Of the True God for whom we live, The Creator of all the World, Maker of Heaven and Earth."  In spirit I kneel before your most holy image which you miraculously imprinted upon the cloak of the Indian Juan Diego, and with the faith of the countless numbers of pilgrims who visit your shrine, I beg you for this favor:

To be a generous, self-sacrificing, Faithful Marian Catechist all the days of my life.

Remember, O Immaculate Virgin, the words you spoke to your devout client, "I am a merciful Mother to you and to all your people who love me and trust in me and invoke my help.  I listen to their lamentations and solace all their sorrows and their sufferings."  I beg you to be a merciful Mother to me, because I sincerely love you and trust in you and invoke your help.

I entreat you, Our Lady of Guadalupe, to grant my request, if this should be the will of God, in order that I may "Bear witness to your love, your compassion, Your help and protection."  Do not forsake me in my needs.  Amen.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.
