Bishop Stika offers January prayer intention
We pray, dear Jesus, for all of the victims of abortion and for those who condone the destruction of innocent lives. Our hearts ache with the pain of knowing that the cherished gift of life continues to be taken from millions of unborn babies by those who themselves have received this precious gift.
As we remember past victims of abortion, let us pray that leaders, legislators, and judges recognize that the right to life exists for all of us —even the unborn. Let us pray for everyone, especially representatives of the Diocese of Knoxville, participating in various March for Life events around the nation this month, and that the news media will finally share our message that abortion is a barbaric and evil act for a society that claims to be civilized.
