John Paul II’s magnificent Encyclical on the sacredness of human life - Evangelium Vitae - The Gospel of Life - was released in Rome 25 years ago, on the Feast of the Annunciation, March 25, 1995.
The Holy Father makes “a precise and vigorous reaffirmation of the value of human life and its inviolability,” and gives clear reasons why abortion and euthanasia are preeminent moral emergencies of our time.
Fr. Frank Pavone as Pastoral Director of Rachel’s Vineyard and the Silent No More Awareness Campaign has composed this prayer booklet based on the truth that are all wounded by abortion, whether we realize it or not (see AbortionShockwaves.com).
The prayers are for those praying for the wounded and for the wounded praying for themselves. Prayer is not a substitute for the hard work of grieving and reconciliation, but is a necessary help to that process.
This popular little prayer book has been revised and expanded to include
additional prayers from Fr. Frank Pavone to enrich your private and public
prayer to bring about a culture of life. This little treasury of prayer now
includes your favorite novenas, found at PrayerCampaign.org, post-abortion
healing prayers and more. 58 pages - Item # 125 -
At Eucharistic Adoration, I use "In the Palm of His Hand," and am so grateful to have this volume. -- Ada F.
Thank you for your longstanding witness to life and especially for your Booklet: "In the Palm of His Hand." While praying with this booklet many times during exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in our parish, Holy Spirit moved me to a much deeper awareness of life within me. – Carol, Gignac, CT.
On Saturday mornings, a group of college and theology seminarians pray the rosary at a local abortion clinic. We read the rosary pro-life meditations within the booklet for before each of the decades. It is my intention to get a copy of the booklets you sent to each of our college and theology students here this year. In this way, I hope we can encourage greater participation through prayer and action in defense of God’s gift of life. Hopefully, the men will carry this concern with them as they continue on their vocations, either as a priest or in service amongst the church laity. -- Jim, Seminarian
