Today the Coming Home pro-life family lifts up in love and prayer Dr. Joseph Booker, his fellow abortionists, his victims, his family, and the pro-life community. Our prayer is for Dr. Booker’s soul, that God be merciful to him, and for the conversion of abortionists still living. We pray that in God’s eternal time He takes this novena and applies it at the moment Dr. Booker came before His judgment throne. We seek for him the same Divine Mercy to which we all seek recourse in our own sinfulness, and pray that if Dr. Booker did cry out at the last for forgiveness that he be spared the horrors of hell and receive the healing love of Jesus.
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.
And so we pray…

Today bring to Me ALL MANKIND, ESPECIALLY ALL SINNERS, and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. In this way you will console Me in the bitter grief into which the loss of souls plunges Me.
Let us pray for the repose of Dr. Joseph Booker’s soul, that God be merciful to him and that his horrific sins be forgiven him; that his purgation be short and his intercession for abortionists still living be long and unceasing; that we remain ever-mindful that above all else our sin is no less hateful to God.
Most Merciful Jesus, whose very nature it is to have compassion on us and to forgive us, do not look upon our sins but upon our trust which we place in Your infinite goodness. Receive us all into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart, and never let us escape from It. We beg this of You by Your love which unites You to the Father and the Holy Spirit.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon all mankind and especially upon poor sinners, all enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion show us Your mercy, that we may praise the omnipotence of Your mercy for ever and ever. Amen.
