Spiritual Adoption of the Unborn

Spiritual Adoption of the Unborn

Sponsored by the Social Concerns and Altar & Rosary Society

We ask you to pledge to pray every day for nine months for a baby in danger of abortion.

While this child will remain unknown to you, his or her ‘spiritual parent’, God knows who the child is. Many people have found that naming ‘their child’ helps to keep them focused on the reality that their prayers are helping to save a particular baby from the harm of abortion.

 

Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen promoted this idea of “spiritual adoption”.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much.  I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.”
