“I’m impressed with the beauty of this blessing for human life in the womb,” said Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, chairman of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). “I can think of no better day to announce this news than on the feast of the Annunciation, when we remember Mary’s ‘yes’ to God and the incarnation of that child in her the womb that saved the world.” (USCCB: Vatican Approves English and Spanish Texts for ‘Blessing of a Child in the Womb’)
This is marvelous! Now to encourage our Priests to use this blessing often so that people come to better understand that is a real human being growing in the mother’s womb. I find myself wishing I were pregnant so I can have this blessing said for my baby.
Thank You dear Jesus for this marvelous new blessing approved by the Vatican. Please bless its use. Amen
