ProLife Liturgical Resources is a tool for Catholic priests and clergy of other denominations who use the liturgical calendar. This application provides three sets of resources (prayers, bulletin insert, and homily hints) to assist the clergy to preach, teach, and pray about the pro-life message with their congregations, based on the readings assigned to each Sunday in the three-year cycle of the lectionary.

The first of these resources is a set of General Intercessions for the Mass. These “Prayers of the Faithful” are composed according to the guidelines set by the Catholic Church, and include a petition for the growth of the culture of life. This fulfills a request of the Catholic bishops, in their Pastoral Plan for Pro-life Activities (2001) that “Parishes should include in the petitions at every Mass a prayer that ours will become a nation that respects and protects all human life, born and unborn, reflecting a true culture of life.”

The second of these pro-life resources is a short paragraph that can be included in the Church bulletin to educate the congregation about the issues of abortion and euthanasia and to exhort them to take part in pro-life activities. This paragraph is often drawn from Church documents about pro-life issues, or statements of particular bishops or the Pope.

The third resource is homily hints. Based on the readings of that particular Sunday, these hints show the preacher how to bring out the pro-life dimensions of the readings, and to relate the great Biblical themes of love, life, justice, and mercy to the problems of abortion, euthanasia, and other threats to human life and dignity. The hints are not an entire homily, but rather an illustration of how to make the connections to these issues. Therefore, the preacher can use this tool whether he wants to create an entire homily on these themes, or just make a mention of them in the context of other considerations.

These liturgical resources were all written by Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, based on his experience of preaching about abortion and euthanasia, and training clergy on dealing with these issues since 1993. Fr. Pavone serves as a member of the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy for Life. The resources on this application are provided a couple of weeks in advance of the Sunday on which they are based. The full set of resources for all three Sunday cycles, and for Liturgical Feasts that are sometimes celebrated on Sundays, is found at www.priestsforlife.org/liturgy.
