Prayer Request from the West-Sound Rachel's Vineyard Team

I know this is late notice on this prayer request, but please pray for this retreat, even if you can't say the whole novena.

We will be eternally grateful if you will begin praying this novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe for the upcoming Rachel's Vineyard retreat, Feb. 22-24.

God bless you,
The West-Sound Rachel's Vineyard team

Dearest Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of the True God, Fruitful Mother of Holiness, teach us your ways of gentleness and strength.

O Mary, you are the daughter of God the Father, Who is the Source of all mercy, love, and healing.  

Help all those who have had abortions to trust that He desires to heal them even more than they desire it themselves.  

Intercede for them, that the Holy Spirit will open their hearts to receive His healing presence.  

Through your intercession, O Blessed and Glorious Virgin Mary, Mother of all tenderness and our Mother, strengthen their faith in Him.

O Lady of Guadalupe, hear our humble prayer, offered with heartfelt confidence.  

We beg you to intercede for this favor:  that the Holy Spirit will descend upon all Rachel's Vineyard retreats, especially this one, that all those

participating will experience true joy and the peace that surpasses all understanding.  

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Protectress of the Unborn, pray for us!  Amen.
