"All we can do at this point is support our pro-life Christian brethren in prayer, so I ask that all Christians reach out to members of their families and communities and please pray for the protection of the Filipino people from this diabolical bill. Pray that the underhanded high-pressure tactics will fail, and that the Lord of Life will intervene and truth and life win out.
"To our fellow Catholics, we note with great hope that this vote has fallen on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the international Patroness of Life. What great Providence! May the Blessed Mother intervene on behalf of the faithful of the Philippines, and leave no doubt at all who has the final say about matters of life and death! Catholics, pick up your rosaries and organize holy hours. This is a moment of prayerful solidarity and you are urgently needed now!"
HLI has produced a special Our Lady of Guadalupe prayer card for the Philippines to share on Facebook.
