Prayer to Mary, Mother of the Life Within:

O Mary, Mother of the Life Within, all life we entrust to you;  The life of every expectant mother and the child within her womb: The life of every human body, the life of every human soul;The life of every newborn child and the life of all grown old.

You held the Lord to your own heart and drew Him so close in. So draw us now in all our needs, O Mother of the Life Within. Amen.
