Novena for the Cause of Life

The defense of life and the promotion of human dignity in every stage and condition are preeminent concerns of the Knights of Columbus and the entire Church.

From October 4-12, during Respect Life Month, Knights are called to join all Catholics in prayer with Pope Francis for an end to abortion, euthanasia and the many social ills that bring illness, broken families, unhappiness and premature death, especially for the most vulnerable.

During each unique day of the novena, you can reflect on a quote selected from the teaching of Pope Francis on the sanctity of life, pray a decade of the rosary, and conclude with St. John Paul II’s prayer from Evangelium Vitae. By reflecting on the teachings of Pope Francis and calling upon the help of Our Lady for 9 days, we can deepen our commitment to the Gospel of Life and support the most vulnerable through prayer.

Those wishing to participate can visit and sign up for it. It is as easy as going to the Supreme website and entering your e-mail (see image below). Once signed up, you will be sent a quote from Pope Francis to meditate on, say a decade of the rosary, and conclude with a prayer from St. John Paul II. It is a good way to spend 10-15 minutes and start your day. 

Also, the prayers and reflection for the Novena can be found here.
