Our Lady of Guadalupe
Patroness of the Unborn

Virgin of Guadalupe, grant us the grace to
love and respect life in its beginnings, with
the same love with which you conceived in
your womb the life of the Son of God.

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen encouraged the spiritual adoption of an unborn child. This is done by praying that one particular but unknown child's life be spared abortion and be allowed to continue to and after birth. To help accomplish this, it was recommended an individual say the following daily prayer for a period of one year:
"Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much, I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion."

Lastly, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO MY DEAR HUSBAND! I'm glad I met you! (private joke)
