I have had a request for the texts for a Divine Liturgy for Life from a priest who wishes to use them on Friday, the Anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision that created a 'right' to kill children in the womb. After I updated the texts and prepared the file to e-mail I thought of posting it here for all who might wish to use it. Please re-distribute it as you wish.

The texts are "ad usum privatum". The file is a pdf.

2010-01-20:5:00 PM - I updated the file to correct several minor errors. Please download again if you wish to use it.

Thank you, John; this is greatly appreciated.

If a more abbreviated petitions for the Etene is desireable the following is offered:

LITURGICAL PETITIONS FOR LIFE
Father David Petras has graciously provided EKTENE petitions to be added when appropriate during the Divine Liturgy.
DEACON: Again we pray for the fullness and abundance of life, and respect on the part of all people for the gift of life that you have given so generously, we pray you, O Lord, hear us and have mercy.
RESPONSE: Lord have mercy
DEACON: Again we pray for the protection of all human life, from conception to its natural completion, and that no one compromise this gift in any way, we pray you, O Lord, hear us and have mercy.
RESPONSE: Lord have mercy
DEACON: Again we pray for those in the service of life, for those entrusted with its protection, and that they may be completely faithful to your commands, and for the well-being of those who do your will, we pray you, hear us and have mercy.
RESPONSE: Lord have mercy

Offering my prayers that God may grant blessings upon your endeavors,
Fr Deacon Paul

Our Byzantine Catholic day at Pittsburgh 40 Days for Life was Tuesday, March 5. We prayed the Office of Consolation for the victims, advocates and wounded of abortion.

Tried to read this hoping it would be something I could use elsewhere in support of the alive but not yet born? Unfortunately, I received a default message telling me I cannot access the download.

Maybe this can be rectified?

I've had a few emails in recent months by people who cannot access the files. However, it works just fine for me. If just clicking on the file does not prompt a dialog to save or open it, try right clicking. Please let me know if this works. If not, send an email to the website and I will email the file to you.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Administrator John,

You said, "The texts are "ad usum privatum".' Which, though I don't know Latin, I'm assuming means to be used privately. If this is meant to be used in the Divine Liturgy, how can it be used privately?

Thank you,

Manuel

We make no claim to being an officially promulgated translation, but if an individual priest wants to use it, that's his business, not ours.

Hi Renee. If you're still out there, our Byzantine Catholics of Pittsburgh day at the Liberty Avenue Planned Parenthood is Tuesday, October 15, 2013 from 7-11 AM. At 10:45 we will celebrate a Moleben for the Sacredness of Life and Supplication for the Victims of Abortion.

All are welcome. Last spring the Roman Catholics prayed it along with us and I especially directed my prayers for the conversion and salvation of those inside the building.

Christ is amongst us,
Deacon Paul
