Prisoners for God's Precious Infants

Priests for Life Newsletter | Pro-Life Rosary Novena | St. John Chrysostom

A.M.D.G.

Dear Pro-Life Friends,

Hundreds of people joined together throughout the world to pray the rosary for Joan's intentions, and she was released even before we finished it. Such is the generosity of God. There are many other pro-lifers in jail for trying to save lives, so I have ammended the petitions slightly so that this rosary can be used again and again.

The full Rosary Novena is 54 days: 27 days (9 complete rosaries) in petition, and 27 days in thanksgiving. Below I have a table of suggested intentions for each of the days, for every petition there is a corresponding thanksgiving. They are, of course, only suggestions.

God bless you all,

Liz Toolan
