Holy Innocents

Apostolate of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary

Innocent babies are killed

Holy Innocents

"Then Herod perceiving that he was deluded by the wise men, was exceeding angry; and sending killed all the men children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the borders thereof, from two years and under, according to the time he had diligently inquired of the wise men." (St. Matthew 2: 16)

Love Them Both

As Christians, our duty is to love as Jesus loves us. Yet, faced with the staggering number of babies that are murdered by abortion, we are left in a quandary. Many choose to condemn abortionists, along with those who procure an abortion. However, that fails Our Lord's command to "love one another as I have loved you." As Christians, we must discern between evil and the doer of an act.

The sin of abortion is the face of Satan.
The sinner, formed in the image and likeness of God, is our neighbor.

Many women who decided to have an abortion did not realize the tremendous emotional, psychological, and spiritual harm that would result. Snared by Satan, they are left to fend themselves, often for many years, harboring a dark and deadly sin in their souls.

With each abortion there is one tangible death: the baby. At least three more hidden deaths occur with every unrepented abortion: the soul of the mother, and the souls of the abortionist and assisting nurse. Other souls may die too: the father's, grandparents', and anyone who assisted or assented to the killing of the baby.

The Holy Souls in Purgatory can intercede powerfully on behalf of all women who are tormented by guilt and grief. We ask their intercession through our Beloved Mother, Mary Most Holy, Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ, to intercede on their behalf for their healing. May she, in her Immaculate Mercy, bind their wounds and pour the balm of His Mercy upon their souls.

How You Can Help

  • Spiritually Adopt an Unborn Child.

    Our name forms part of our personhood. We are known and loved by this name. Therefore, we need to name the child we wish to adopt spiritually. Choose a name for your spiritually adopted unborn child, and pray for him or her.

  • Pray for all mothers

    for the courage to live the Gospel of Life - to imitate Our Beloved Mother, Mary Most Holy
    and bring their child into this world to praise and glorify Our Creator.

  • Pray for the healing of mothers and fathers

    who have killed their babies. These little babies do not want to lose their parents a second time. They want their mothers and fathers to be with them, in Jesus, for all eternity. Pray to The Holy Souls and the Holy Innocents for their healing and conversion.

  • Pray for the conversion and healing

    of all mothers, fathers, grandparents, abortionists, nurses, and those who assist in any way.

  • Assist another woman with her unborn child

    Care for another woman with her unborn child by helping 'matercare.org' in their work to assist these women.

    "With every abortion there are two victims - the mother and the baby.

    Post abortion Syndrome (PAS) can be the same as Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.
    Abortion can be so traumatising for some women that afterwards they cannot function normally.

    After an abortion, women are supposed to feel relief and not grief and maybe for a short time they do; then the realisation of what they have done hits home and it can be very devastating.

    Women may feel that they have no right to ask for help after making the decision to abort their baby. This guilt can be so enormous and affect them both psychologically and physically that it results in overpowering remorse and regret.

    But you are not alone and you don't have to deal with these feelings without help!

    At the Family Life Pregnancy Centre, we offer Post Abortion Counselling free of charge. Our service is non-judgmental and fully confidential.

    Our Counsellor will take you through a nine-stage healing programme that works!

    Here at the Family Life Centre, we understand what you are going through and we always offer a supportive, listening ear."

    Joy Filled Marriages

    "When people think of the Catholic Church's teaching on sex and marriage, they often think of a list of 'prohibitions'. Others who live the Church's teachings often do so with an 'I'm-coping-with-it, but-I'm-not-happy' attitude. God's Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage offers a refreshing, liberating vision of marriage and sexuality — one that helps couples fully embrace, and even celebrate, God's glorious plan for their lives.

    God's Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage provides couples with a rich understanding of the teachings of the Church and offers them the tools to live married life as God intended. The creators of the program believe that when engaged couples understand God's plan for marriage, including a clear and pastoral explanation of the 'difficult teachings', they come away from the program with a sense of liberation and gratitude rather than resentment toward the Church."

    May God bless you abundantly!
