Prayers for aborted babies

Heavenly Father,

Thou hast given us the gift of freedom

to love and to follow in Thy ways and commands.

Some parents choose to abuse this freedom

by destroying the gift of life

which Thou hast given to their offspring.

Please forgive those who destroy human life

by aborting their unborn babies.

Give these unborn children the opportunity

to enjoy Thee for all eternity,

if it according to Thy ordinance.

Assist me in being one in solidarity with Thy little ones

by taking to heart the words of Thy Son,

“whatever you did for one of these least brothers of Mine,

you did for Me.” (Mt. 25:40)

Therefore, allow me today, Father,

to adopt spiritually an unborn child

and to offer my prayers, works,

joys and sufferings for that little one,

so that child will be able to be born and live

for Thy greater honor and glory.

We pray this in Jesus’ name,

in union with the Holy Spirit one God forever and ever.

Amen.

One of the most common questions I receive is, “What happens to aborted babies? Do they go to heaven? Should we pray for them?”

Pope John Paul II, in The Gospel of Life, speaks directly to those who have had abortions, and tells them, “To the same Father and to his mercy you can with sure hope entrust your child” (n. 99).

The child, in other words, continues to live, and the mother continues to care for that child by “entrusting” him or her to the Father. God takes care of the children He has created, including those who have been killed. Therefore, we entrust these children to Him “with sure hope.”

This “hope” means that we acknowledge that God wants everyone to be saved. He saves different people in different ways. The ordinary way of salvation is through the sacrament of Baptism, which gives us the new life that is necessary for reaching heaven. If a person, however, is prevented, through no fault of his own, from receiving the sacrament, that does not mean that God cannot give them that new life by different means. How, precisely, He does this, we do not know. He has not given us the answer to every question. But He has assured us — and in fact He commands us — that we are to trust in His mercy, and entrust each other, including aborted children, to His mercy.

The International Theological Commission, which is an advisory panel to the Vatican, issued a document in April of 2007 entitled “The Hope of Salvation for Infants Who Die Without Being Baptized,” and Pope Benedict XVI authorized its publication. This document emphasized the “grounds for hope that unbaptized infants who die will be saved and enjoy the beatific vision.” The document recalled Christ’s special love for “the little ones,” and acknowledged that the question of what happens to unbaptized infants is intensified in an age when so many die from abortion. In fact, the document pointed out the solidarity with Christ among infant victims of violence, born and unborn, who like the holy innocents killed by King Herod are endangered by the “fear or selfishness of others.”

Having made these points, however, the document adds, “We emphasize that these are reasons for prayerful hope, rather than grounds for sure knowledge.”

So then, we should hope and pray.

The month of November, dedicated to all the faithful departed, is an excellent time to intensify our prayers for all children who have been aborted. In fact, just as we request a Mass to be offered for a deceased relative by name, we can likewise request a Mass to be offered when that deceased relative is a child killed by abortion. Many of these children have been given names, and their names can be given when the Mass is requested, without having to say that they died from abortion.

“Lord, give eternal rest to all aborted children, and grant that they may run and play in the playgrounds of heaven.”

Act of Adoration and Reparation to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament

I. I ADORE Thee profoundly, O my Jesus, in Thy sacramental form; I acknowledge Thee to be true God and true Man, and by this act of adoration I intend to atone for the coldness of so many Christians who pass before Thy churches and sometimes before the very tabernacle in which Thou art pleased to remain at all hours with loving impatience to give Thyself to Thy faithful people, and do not so much as bend the knee before Thee, and who, by their indifference proclaim that they grow weary of this heavenly manna, like the people of Israel in the wilderness. I offer Thee in reparation for this grievous negligence, the Most Precious Blood which Thou didst shed from Thy five wounds, and especially from Thy sacred Side, and entering therein, I repeat a thousand times with true recollection of spirit:

O Sacrament most holy!
O Sacrament divine!
All praise and all thanksgiving
be every moment Thine.

Our Father…

Hail Mary…

Glory Be…

II. Profoundly I adore Thee, my Jesus; I acknowledge Thy presence in the Blessed Sacrament, and by this act of adoration I intend to atone for the carelessness of so many Christians who see Thee carried to poor sick people to strengthen them for the great journey to eternity, and leave Thee unescorted, nay, who scarcely give Thee any outward marks of reverence. I offer Thee in reparation for such coldness, the Most Precious Blood which Thou didst shed from Thy five wounds and especially from Thy sacred Side, and entering therein I say again and again with my heart full of devotion:

O Sacrament most holy!
O Sacrament divine!
All praise and all thanksgiving
be every moment Thine.

Our Father…

Hail Mary…

Glory Be…

III. Profoundly I adore Thee, my Jesus, true Bread of life eternal, and by my adoration I intend to compensate Thee for the many wounds which Thy Heart suffers daily in the profaning of churches where Thou art pleased to dwell beneath the sacramental veils to be adored and loved by all Thy faithful people; and in reparation for so many acts of irreverence, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood which Thou didst shed from Thy five wounds and especially from Thy sacred Side, and entering therein with recollected spirit I repeat every instant:

O Sacrament most holy!
O Sacrament divine!
All praise and all thanksgiving
be every moment Thine.

Our Father…

Hail Mary…

Glory Be…

IV.  Profoundly I adore Thee, my Jesus, the living Bread which cometh down from heaven and by this act of adoration, I intend to atone for all the many acts of irreverence which are committed all the day long by Thy faithful when they assist at Holy Mass, wherein through Thine exceeding love Thou dost renew in an unbloody manner the self-same sacrifice which Thou didst once offer on Calvary for our salvation. I offer Thee in atonement for such base ingratitude the Most Precious Blood which Thou didst shed from Thy five wounds and especially from Thy sacred Side, and entering therein with sincere devotion, I unite my voice to that of the Angels who stand around Thee in adoration, saying with them:

O Sacrament most holy!
O Sacrament divine!
All praise and all thanksgiving
be every moment Thine.

Our Father…

Hail Mary…

Glory Be…

V. Profoundly I adore Thee, my Jesus, true Victim of expiation for our sins, and I offer Thee this act of adoration to atone for the sacrilegious outrages Thou dost suffer from so many ungrateful Christians who dare to draw near to receive Thee with mortal sin upon their souls. In reparation for such hateful sacrileges I offer Thee the last drops of Thy Most Precious Blood, which Thou didst shed from Thy sacred wounds and especially from the wound in Thy sacred Side, and entering therein with a devout heart, I adore Thee, I bless and I love Thee, and I repeat with all the hearts who are devoted to the Blessed Sacrament:

O Sacrament most holy!
O Sacrament divine!
All praise and all thanksgiving
be every moment Thine.

Our Father…

Hail Mary…

Glory Be…
