  • Take a break from television and movies today. Consider spending some of that time praying with today’s reflection.

  • Pray the short prayer “Every Life is Worth Living,” reflecting on the gift of human life. (Also available to order or download.)

    Heavenly Father, thank you for the precious gift of life. Help us to cherish and protect this gift, even in the midst of fear, pain, and suffering. Give us love for all people, especially the most vulnerable, and help us bear witness to the
    truth that every life is worth living.

    Grant us the humility to accept help when we are in need, and teach us to be merciful to all. Through our words and actions, may others encounter the 

    outstretched hands of Your mercy. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
     

  • Offer some other sacrifice, prayer, or act of penance that you feel called to do for today’s intention.
