Prayer for Life and Dignity

Eternal God, Creator and Sustainer of life,
bless us with the courage to defend all life
from conception to natural death.
Bless us with the strength to respect all peoples
from east to west, from north to south,
so that we may truly follow the call of Jesus to be neighbor.
We ask this in the name of Jesus,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit. Amen

(From Being Neighbor: The Catechism and Social Justice, USCCB, April 1998)
