Pro Life Saint
(October 4, 1922 – April 28, 1962) was an Italian pediatrician, wife and mother who is best known for refusing both an abortion and a hysterectomy when she was pregnant with her fourth child, despite knowing that continuing with the pregnancy could result in her death.
Gianna was beatified by Pope John Paul II on April 24, 1994, and officially canonized as a saint on May 16, 2004. Gianna’s husband Pietro and their last child, Gianna, were present at the ceremony. St. Gianna is a patron saint for mothers, physicians, and unborn children.
Prayer for the Unborn
Heavenly Father, in Your love for us, protect against
the wickedness of the devil, those helpless little ones
to whom You have given the gift of life.
Touch with pity the hearts of those women pregnant in
our world today who are not thinking of motherhood.
Help them to see that the child they carry is made in
Your image – as well as theirs – made for eternal life.
Dispel their fear and selfishness and give them true
womanly hearts to love their babies and give them birth
and all the needed care that a mother can give.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord,
Who lives and reigns with You and Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen.
