CATHOLICISMROCKS SPIRITUAL ADOPTION CAMPAIGN
To help stop the anti-life push around the world, the late Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen encouraged the spiritual adoption of an unborn child. This is done by a participant pledging to pray this short prayer daily for nine months.
"Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion."
Therefore, we are encouraging people to "spiritually adopt" an unborn baby, and to follow their baby along the path to being born.
This year’s Spiritual Adoption program will start on April 1st and end on New Year’s Day, January 1st. Once you sign up, I will send you one of three beautiful adoption cards. Every month you will get an update on the development of the baby as it progresses until birth.
You can make your pledge at any time, and it will follow a nine month schedule from the day you sign up, (it may not be in sync with the program dates). You may choose a boy or a girl.
Though the spiritual child will remain unknown to his or her spiritual parent, God knows the child for whom you pray. Many people have found that giving their spiritual child a name helps to keep them focused on the reality that their prayers are helping to save a particular baby from the harm of abortion.
Who can participate?
Basically, the program is for anyone who is concerned about abortion, and who is willing to pray for babies in danger of abortion, "that they might have life and have it to the full." (John 10:10)
Who benefits from the Spiritual Adoption Program?
Everyone! While it is not always possible to see the effects of prayer, we know through Scripture that God wants us to pray, and we know by faith that He answers all prayers. The educational aspect of the program is beneficial to people of all ages, including children.
If you would like to spiritually adopt a baby, please sign up here today and make your pledge to receive your Spiritual Adoption card. There are three beautiful designs each with the prayer on the back and a space for 'your' baby's name and spiritual adoption date. This is completely free, and we will never use your information except to send you updates.
