“The battle against abortion is a spiritual one.....it is really about conquering the evil that blinds people, convincing them that there are compelling reasons to kill preborn children.
The Marian Blue Wave, American Life League’s prayer initiative to eliminate abortion, marks its fourth anniversary on October 7, 2023, with more than 10,000 prayer partners all over the world, all united in prayer to end abortion.
Marian Blue Wave director Katie Brown recalled the launch of this commitment by faithful Catholics to pray the Rosary.
“Within days of launching the new Marian Blue Wave,” Brown shared, “we had people in all 50 states and 31 countries around the world pledge to join. It was a humbling reception to our small but mighty movement.”
“The battle against abortion is a spiritual one,” declared Brown. “There are, of course, political and economic factors driving those who promote abortion, but it is really about conquering the evil that blinds people, convincing them that there are compelling reasons to kill preborn children. Those who honor God as the Creator of life understand that for the lie it is, and willingly go to their knees in prayer to fight for these innocent victims.”
Brown points out that one of the promises of the Rosary is that its recitation “will cause virtue and good works to flourish.”
“It is more important than ever for Catholics and other Christians to wage this battle over the evil of abortion with the power of God and the intercession of His Blessed mother,” Brown observed.
Marian Blue Wave participants commit to pray a weekly Rosary with the specific intentions of ending all types of abortions – including surgical, pill, contraceptive, and in vitro fertilization – and shutting down every Planned Parenthood facility in America. Additionally, the movement seeks to close all other abortion facilities in the United States and change the hearts of Catholics who advocate for or promote abortion.
