“A voice is heard in Ramah,
lamentation and bitter weeping:
Mary our Mother
is weeping for her children
because they are no more”
(cf. Jer 31:15)
On earth the last battle between life and death is being fought, a battle between God the Father of Life and Satan, a “murderer from the beginning” (Jn 8:44). The victim of this apocalyptic battle is man, created in the image of God, whom the “great enemy” tries to kill in every way with the absurd illusion of destroying God who lives in each one of us.
The consequences of all this are: genetic manipulation, mass sterilization, the destruction of families, the corruption of innocence, euthanasia, now extended also to children… but above all abortion, because it strikes life right from its beginning.
Today there are more than one billion victims of this horrible and infamous slaughter: the only difference between killing a baby who has just been conceived and an adult is that the baby cannot cry nor defend himself and doesn’t leave a bulky corpse. In order to eliminate the “body of material evidence” of the effected murder there are sewers, garbage dumps, waste incinerators and cosmetic factories.
What can we do to “stop this slaughter” as John Paul II cried out to the world?
The Armata Bianca, a Pro-life ecclesiastic movement which doesn’t support violent methods because violence generates violence, has started to gather the bodies of babies killed in hospitals and clinics, and give them a decent burial in cemeteries where the statue of “Mary, Mother of the Unborn” is placed.
This initiative, which was accomplished for the first time in the city of Aquila and continues in many parts of the world, bears witness that the remains of abortion are not waste material, but the children of man, with a body and soul, and that abortion is murder.
Just as the children of Bethlehem were the victims of Herod’s selfishness, so the children of today who are murdered by abortion are the victims of man’s selfishness. In his last book “Memory and Identity”, John Paul II says: “It was a legally elected parliament which allowed for (…) the elimination of millions of sons and daughters of Israel.” And he adds: “We have to question the legal regulations that have been decided in the parliaments of present day democracies. The most direct association which comes to mind is the abortion laws. When a parliament authorizes the interruption of pregnancy, permitting the destruction of the unborn child, it commits a grave abuse toward an innocent human being and one lacking, above all, any capacity for self-defence. Parliaments which create and promulgate such laws must be aware that they are transgressing their powers and remain in open conflict with the law of God and the law of nature” (Chapter 22).
Jesus solemnly declares in the Gospel: “To the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, you did it to Me” (Mt 25:40); in every child who is the victim of abortion, Jesus is Crucified again; as a consequence, the power of intercession of these little martyrs is infinite.
We invite all the faithful to turn to them with the prayer approved by the Church and published here. We will thus be able to give these children a voice and the opportunity to express themselves in the dimension of the spirit and of love, given that in their brief earthly life they only had the opportunity to “cry in silence”.
Unborn children are now in the Heart of the Father. We are certain that they will be the intercessors of His Mercy which is more powerful than evil, more powerful than death” (Dives in Misericordia VIII, 15).
Prayer to unborn children to obtain any grace
“As long as you did it to one
of these brothers of Mine, you did it to Me”
“Little martyrs who are in the Heart of the Father,
we pray you to intercede for us with the Spirit of fortitude
so that he may help us fight this latest battle against evil
until it is cast into hell and a new humanity may be free to live
as divine creatures and worthy sons of God.
You can do everything with the Father and you can do even more
if you ask for Mary’s help since she became your mother in fullness
when your earthly mother didn’t have the courage to let you come to life.
The Father and Mary, whom you pray, will forgive your crucifiers
and give us the strength to fight evil in all its forms.
Thank you, little martyrs and our special protectors:
in heaven we will meet face to face and sing the hymn of victory over evil
and of praise to God our Father”.
