Today the parish launced its Spirital Adoption of the Unborn to coincide with the period of Our Lord's gestation in the womb of His Virgin Mother. Parishioners were invited to adopt an unborn baby - naming it if they wished (I have named mine James, the name my mother gave to a child she miscarried) - and to pray Archbishop Fulton Sheen's the prayer of spiritual adoption each day.
The prayer runs as follows:
Jesus, Mary and Joseph. I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the unborn child whom I have spiritually adopted and who is in danger of an abortion.Dominican Sisters of Mary Mother of the Eucharist who were visiting Marquette this weekend.
