Our Lady of Guadalupe – Protector of the Unborn and St George Patron of England – Pray for Us

Posted on April 23, 2015

Today is the national day for England: St George’s day. It is Birmingham, England that will be hosting this year’s March for life UK. The UK is often referred to as the abortion capital of Europe because of it’s comparatively high abortion rates. Birmingham lies at the heart of the UK and as we are told in Matthew 15:19 ‘It is out of the heart that evil thoughts come’. Birmingham has indeed helped spread evil throughout our nation.

Birmingham has infamous historic roots with the abortion movement. The largest single abortion provider in the UK is BPAS (the British Pregnancy Advisory Service). This organisation was founded in Birmingham in 1968 and was originally known as the Birmingham Pregnancy Advisory Service. On Saturday May 16th we will be going back to the geographical roots of this evil to shower it with our witness of truth.

May is traditionally known as the month of Mary and England was in the past known as the dowry of Mary so it is fitting that we ask the mother of Jesus for help in our troubled land. As part of our programme of events for the march we will be hosting the relic image of Our Lady of Guadalupe ‘Patroness of the unborn’. There will be an opportunity at the beginning of the day from 10am in St Chad’s Cathedral to see this beautiful image of Mary and ask our spiritual mother in Heaven to bring our petitions to her Son to help heal this nation.

Come Holy Spirit;Come. Come by the Most Powerful Intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Your most well Beloved Spouse!

Dear Mother Mary. We thank you for your promise to help us in our need. Help us to build a shrine in our hearts. Make it as beautiful as the one built for you on the Mount of Tepeyac in Guadalupe. A shrine full of trust, hope, and love of Jesus growing stronger each day. Ask your Son Jesus to give us the courage to bring your message of hope to all expectant mothers and fathers, to all those who suffer from the hurt of abortion, to those caught up in the abortion industry and to all hearts who are in need of your motherly love. You are our Mother and our inspiration. Heal our own hearts so that we may bring the message of truth and love to our troubled nation.

Come Holy Spirit;Come. Come by the Most Powerful Intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Your most well Beloved Spouse!

St George; Pray for us. Our Lady of Guadalupe; Pray for us.
