Pope promotes worldwide prayer vigil for unborn life

Catholic World News - November 15, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI has issued a reminder that the eve of the First Sunday of Advent will see a worldwide prayer vigil for unborn human life.

At the conclusion of his regular Angelus audience on November 14, the Pontiff said that he would preside in Rome at “first Vespers for the first Sunday of Advent and at a prayer vigil for nascent life.” He welcomed the participation of church all around the world.

Noting that he has especially recommended the vigil of prayer to religious communities, parishes, and movements within the Church, the Pope remarked: “The period in which we prepare for Christmas is an appropriate time to invoke divine protection on every human being called into existence, and to thank God for the gift of life we received from our parents.”
