Prophet Of Life Is Beatified

In Rome we celebrate the beatification of Blessed Paul VI. I am remembering you all in prayer at the ceremony and later as I get to the tomb of the new Beatus (all going well!). Let us remember today the Pro-Life cause throughout the world. We commend to the prayers and the protection of our new Blessed those whose lives are in danger through abortion, euthanasia and those technologies which destroy and manipulate human life.
Almighty ever-living God
who chose Blessed Paul VI to preside over your whole people
and benefit them by word and example,
keep safe, we pray, by his intercession,
the shepherds of your Church
along with the flocks entrusted to their care,
and direct them in the way of eternal salvation.
Through Christ our Lord.
Heavenly Father,
you glorify your servant, Blessed Paul VI,
Universal Pastor, Prophet of Life, Servant of your people;
as we entrust ourselves to his intercession
may we may be faithful servants of your Gospel,
zealous witnesses to Christ,
courageous prophets of life,
so that one day we may come to share in the life
you have given to your faithful servant.
Through Christ our Lord.
