Thank you for joining us in prayer, Belinda!

And thank you for sharing the story of your sister. I am very grateful that she chose life. I cannot imagine the difficult situations a woman must be in to consider abortion as an option. They must be in such a troubled state to contemplate it. And my heart goes out to those women who truly don't want to abort, but are coerced or forced by others with threat of violence, death, or ruin if they don't.

May God have mercy on us all!

CJ - thanks for leading this novena. It was moving to pray for such a cause - especially since my sister battled this decision several months back. Luckily, w/some prayers from lots of friends, she chose life and is very happy with her decision. She is expecting in March. :-) I firmly believe that if she had gone down that other path, she would be in a bad place to this day.



Pray. Hope. Don't worry.
Belinda

Oh good!
I sometimes get all mixed up with the mysteries for a novena, and was hoping this wasn't one of those times when I got it all backwards, lol.

Hahaha! yes CJ. When I got home last night and looked at my calendar to make sure I had the right mysteries - I realized I wrote it incorrectly in the forum. Good thing I had dates written down for the list of mysteries. :-)

I prayed Sorrowful and Luminous last night.

Tonight is Glorious mysteries.

Oh sorry...

So glad we have a good group going here.

I have also been praying with you all. I did get a late start, but did both the Joyful and Luminous on Thursday during my Adoration Hour. My favorite is the Luminous Mysteries, so I will pray those on the last day, the 30th.

That's marvelous!

So, we are all agreed with BURBANOVSKY's idea to each pray a different set of pro-life mysteries this coming Thursday for the 9th day of the novena.

Me - Joyful
BURBANOVSKY - Luminous
SUNNYSEASAGAIN - Sorrowful
SUNGIRLII - Glorious

That's great, BURBANOVSKY! It worked out well that there were 4 people taking part.

It's a Holy Spirit thing!

I will gladly do the Joyful Mysteries on the last day.

Hmm. I hadn't thought of that idea CJ. It's a good one. I think, if we say here that we are doing this Novena, then we tell the group which mystery we'll say on day 9. But if we want to pray the novena in silence, then those folks just say the joyful.

That said, Since I wrote in 2nd that I would pray this too... I'll pray the 2nd set -Luminous mystery.
CJ- you pray the 1st - Joyful
SUNNYSEASAGAIN pray the 3rd - Sorrowful
SUNGIRLI pray the 4th - Glorious

Unless of course y'all just want to keep with the usual order and continue w/the Joyful Mystery on day 9.

I'll continue to check in to see what is decided.

Wonderful!

Let me know what y'all want to do for the last day next week - we just all say the Joyful Mysteries, or one of us does Joyful, another Luminous, a third person does Sorrowful, and the fourth Glorious?

Quick question - how did you want to work the mysteries?

We begin with the Joyful, then Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious twice each, and then the last day did you just want to do the Joyful again, or take turns, and each do a different set of mysteries for the last day?

Let me know!

Hello all!

I am beginning a pro-life rosary novena this coming Wednesday, 22 October 2014. If anyone would like to join me, I am posting below the pro-life mysteries that I use.

Wed, 22 Oct - Joyful Pro-life Mysteries
Thur, 23 Oct - Luminous Pro-life Mysteries
Fri, 24 Oct - Sorrowful Pro-life Mysteries
Sat. 25 Oct - Glorious Pro-life Mysteries
Sun. 26 Oct - Joyful Pro-life Mysteries
etc.

Pro-Life Mysteries

Joyful Mysteries
1. The Annunciation: "And she was conceived by the Holy Spirit."
We pray that the Holy Spirit teaches people that, from the moment of conception, there exists a living human person.

2. The Visitation: "Mary went as quickly as she could and greeted Elizabeth."
We pray, that like Mary, we may go quickly to support women with child.

3. The Nativity of Our Lord: Mary has the joy of seeing and holding her child, the Saviour.
We pray, that every mother may have the joy of seeing and holding her baby.

4. The Presentation in the Temple: Mary and Joseph present the child Jesus in the temple.
We pray that all parents may have the joy of seeing their child born to a new life and dedicated to God in baptism.

5. The Finding in the Temple: Mary and Joseph after 3 days find the boy Jesus in the temple.
We pray that childless couples may know the joy of finding their child.


The Luminous Mysteries
1. Baptism in the Jordan:
Jesus approaches John to be baptized by him. John knows he is not worthy to even undo the thongs on Jesus' sandals, but he consents, to “fulfill all righteousness”.

Lord Jesus, as expecting parents we may feel unworthy of the life we have helped to create. Help all parents say yes, as Our Blessed Mother did, to Your request of us, and to carry out our duties as parents.

2. Wedding at Cana:
"Do whatever He tells you." (John 2:5)
Mary admonishes the servants to do whatever Jesus tells them, and the water is changed to wine after they obey.

Heavenly Father, give all men and women considering abortion the strength to obey your will to become parents, allowing the miracle of conversion to happen in their hearts.


3. Proclamation of the Kingdom:
"Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much." (Luke 7:47)
The sinful woman washes Jesus' feet with her tears, and dries them with her hair.

Lord Jesus, give all men and women guilty of coercing to abort, aborting, or performing abortions the resources and graces they need to seek forgiveness and heal.

4. Transfiguration:
"And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light." (Matthew 17:2)
Jesus gave some of his apostles a glimpse of his glory and majesty to help them withstand His coming Passion and Death.

Lord Jesus, give all parents a glimpse of your love in their hearts to enable them to withstand the trials of parenthood.

5. Institution of the Eucharist:
"If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you." (John 13:14-15)
Jesus washes the apostles' feet.

Lord Jesus, help all to follow your example of loving service to others, especially those struggling with crisis pregnancies, difficult births, or parental challenges.

Sorrowful Mysteries
1. The Agony in the Garden: Jesus agonizes in prayer over His coming passion. We pray that any woman agonizing over her pregnancy may have the courage to accept the situation.

2. The Scourging at the Pillar: Jesus is scourged at the pillar.
We pray for women suffering all the trauma of abortion.

3. The Crowning with Thorns: Jesus is crowned with thorns.
We offer this decade in reparation for the killing of babies and the maiming of women.

4. The Carrying of the Cross: Jesus carries the cross.
We offer this decade for the conversion of all who promote abortion.

5. The Crucifixion: On the cross Jesus cried out: "Father, forgive them."
We cry to the Father to forgive all who promote and carry out abortion.


Glorious Mysteries
1. The Resurrection: Jesus rises to new life.
We pray that all members of the medical profession keep in mind that they are dedicated to preserving human life.

2. The Ascension: Raised to the right hand of the Father, Jesus pleads for us.
We pray that those who are mocked for their belief in the sacredness of human life, may be encouraged by contemplating Christ pleading for them.

3. The Descent of the Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit enlightens and strengthens the apostles.
We pray that the Holy Spirit may enlighten and strengthen all who are struggling to uphold the sacredness of human life, and those contemplating abortion.

4. The Assumption of Mary: Mary, after meeting her responsibilities amidst the suffering, is carried up to heaven. We pray that both parents may accept their responsibilities with regard to the baby and to each other.

5. The Coronation of Mary: Mary is crowned, sharing Christ's kingship after sharing His passion. We pray that we all may suffer willingly with Him, because then we shall live and reign with Him.
