Prayer to Saint Catherine of Siena
Humble virgin and
Doctor of the Church,
in thirty-three years
you ahieved great perfection
and became the counselor of Popes.
You know the temptations of mothers
today as well as the dangers
that await unborn infants.
Intercede for me
that I may avoid miscarriage
and bring forth a healthy baby
who will become a true child of God.
Also pray for all mothers,
that they may not resort to abortion
but help bring a new life
into the world.
Do you know anyone expecting a baby? This prayer would make a beautiful gift for the expecting mother.
Saint Catherine of Siena
Most Holy Spirit,
source of unity in the Blessed
Trinity, through the prayers of
Saint Catherine, may the Church
always be a sign of unity in faith
and morals under the
leadership of the Holy Father,
the divinely chosen authority who
speaks in the name os Jesus
Christ. Who with the Father
and the Son lives and reigns
