Day 1 - St. John Bosco Novena Prayers:

Peace be with you!
Are you ready to pray?
I am! 
Let's get started... I'm praying this novena for Hope and today I have a specific thing I want you to pray for regarding hope. 
Today is the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. This is the Supreme Court Decision that legalized abortion in the United States. 
Abortion is utterly and completely a hopeless act. 
Greater hope in our world would wipe out abortion. A greater hope would bring our society to Christ and not to the quick-fix of abortion. 
Greater hope would bring healing and forgiveness to those involved in abortion.
So, join me in praying on this infamous day in US history - for hope.
Just as St. John Bosco brought great hope to the youth, please pray with me that you and I can bring a greater hope to women in need who are considering abortion. 
Here are the novena prayers for today:
