THE NOVENA FOR LIFE - 23RD TO 31ST MAY 2024


On 23 May next, the Council for Life of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference will launch a nine-day Pray For Life Novena which will run until Friday 31 May which falls on the Feast of the Visitation.

The Pray For Life Novena and its associated website Pray For Life – Novena May 23rd – 31st will allow people an opportunity to be an active part of this initiative to pray for the protection of human life and to build a culture of life.  The Council for Life invites all to sign up at prayforlife.ie  in order to receive daily prayers and actions that will focus on themes such as expectant mothers and fathers, unborn children, for those who defend life and for an end to abortion.

Looking forward to the launch, Bishop Kevin Doran of Elphin and chairman of the Bishops’ Council for Life, said, “writing about the Our Father, the Latin-American theologian Gustavo Gutierez commented that, if we pray ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ with sincerity, it requires us to be committed to working here on earth to bring about that reign of God.

“As we embark on our third annual Pray for Life Novena, we form a community of prayer, whether online or in person.  We pray not only for women and their babies, but also for ourselves, that we may be renewed in our courage and our confidence in being advocates for life, and in our capacity to inspire others to do the same.”
