O HEART OF JESUS, formed by the Holy Ghost in the womb of the Virgin Mary, have mercy on the nations soaked in the blood of the innocent. May that vast army of infants slaughtered mercilessly in their mothers’ wombs raise their voices and plead before Thy throne in glory for an end everywhere to the crime of abortion that has so rightly merited Thy Father’s wrath and caused the nations to become an abomination in His sight. Do what Thou must, O merciful Heart of Jesus, to reveal to the Irish people the horror of this sin and bring us all to repentance.

IMMACULATE VIRGIN MARY, Queen of Ireland, thou who didst bear Thy Son for nine months in the inviolate sanctuary of Thy womb, intercede today for all who, confident in thy maternal protection, will continue to defend the life of unborn children, and grant us victory over the forces of death. Amen.
