Today the Coming Home pro-life family continues to lift up in love and prayer Theodore Shulman, his family, and the pro-life community. Our prayer is for healing whatever bitterness that resides in the hearts of people on either side of this issue. Mr. Shulman is a truly gifted scientist whose skills are desperately needed in research to cure human affliction. In the next nine days, we’ll pray for his inner-healing and for his heart and mind to be guided by love of humanity.
Some Notes: First, for our non-Catholic brothers and sisters, novenas are nine days of intercessory prayer. We welcome you to join us in the novena prayers, or to pray along with us each night at 8 PM EST in any manner of prayer that you prefer. I have also linked to the chaplet at the end of the prayers.

Today bring to Me THE SOULS OF THOSE WHO HAVE SEPARATED THEMSELVES FROM MY CHURCH,* and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. During My bitter Passion they tore at My Body and Heart, that is, My Church. As they return to unity with the Church, My wounds heal and in this way they alleviate My Passion.
Lord Jesus, we lift up to you Theodore, his mother, and all who have separated themselves from your body, the larger church of faithful believers from Judaism and other faiths who place their belief in the God of Abraham. Send your irresistible Holy Spirit into their lives and light in them the fire of your love. We pray too for those who claim to be pro-life whose hearts are similarly far from you.
Most Merciful Jesus, Goodness Itself, You do not refuse light to those who seek it of You. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Church. Draw them by Your light into the unity of the Church, and do not let them escape from the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart; but bring it about that they, too, come to glorify the generosity of Your mercy.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Son’s Church, who have squandered Your blessings and misused Your graces by obstinately persisting in their errors. Do not look upon their errors, but upon the love of Your own Son and upon His bitter Passion, which He underwent for their sake, since they, too, are enclosed in His Most Compassionate Heart. Bring it about that they also may glorify Your great mercy for endless ages. Amen.
