“O Mary, bright dawn of the new world, Mother of the living, to you do we entrust the cause of life”. Yesterday was the 20 years celebration of a prayer called for by late John Paul II in 1995.
The vigil for worldwide prayer for life will begin the afternoon of March 24 in the Basilica of Saint Mary Major before the Marian icon to which the Pope entrusts his travels, Salus Populi Romani, which means “Help of the People of Rome.” The vigil will have an especially Marian character.
The event will be divided into three stages: At 5:00 p.m. local time in Rome, a moment of reflection on some of the artistic elements of the basilica related to life will begin; then at 6:00 p.m. the recitation of the Rosary will begin, focusing on the Gospel passages connected with life, and interspersed with brief testimonies. At 7:00 p.m. the president of the Pontifical Council for the Family, Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, will celebrate the Eucharist.
The official announcement calls for similar vigils taking place in other parts of the world, such as the Marian shrines of Fatima, Lourdes, and Guadalupe.

This is what the Bible say about idols, and those who set aside the Word of God. Like the man of lawlessness in Rome:
Exodus 20: 4-6
“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
Pope John Paul II is the source of the this global Catholic prayer:
To the Bishops
Priests and Deacons
Men and Women religious
and all People of Good Will
on the Value and Inviolability
of Human Life.
The prayer of the Pope:
“O Mary, bright dawn of the new world, Mother of the living, to you do we entrust the cause of life. Look down, O Mother, upon the vast numbers of babies not allowed to be born, of the poor whose lives are made difficult, of men and women who are victims of brutal violence, of the elderly and the sick killed by indifference or out of misguided mercy.
Grant that all who believe in your Son may proclaim the Gospel of life with honesty and love to the people of our time. Obtain for them the grace to accept that Gospel as a gift ever new, the joy of celebrating it with gratitude throughout their lives and the courage to bear witness to it resolutely, in order to build, together with all people of good will, the civilization of truth and love, to the praise and glory of God, the Creator and lover of life”.

When the Pope pray to “O Mary” and “entrust her the cause of life” he claims he elevates the departed soul of Jewish mortal woman. This is blasphemy against the Word of God. It is a grave sin to pray to the dead and to worship a mortal human being. We shall mot make idols of mortal men.
Why pray in any other name, when you can pray directly to Jesus the Messiah?
The Bible says that there is only one mediator between man and God, and that is Jesus the Messiah. True followers of God of the Bible do not pray in any other name.
For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus.
The Roman Catholic Church is a deadly deception because the Vatican priesthood defame Jesus using His own name. The ultimate bid of Satan to use the name of “Christ” to make man do the devils will. To mock, ridicule and defame Jewish Miriam, who gave birth to the Messiah.
The Jewish mother of Jesus should be deeply respected by all Protestant Christians. We do respect her enough not to paganize her legacy, and to make her look like a goddess. We respect her enough, not to pray in her name, but to go directly to her Son. As she instructed the disciples during the wedding in Caana.
His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
We respect the mother of Jesus by telling others the truth about her. She was surely blessed among women, and all generations shall call her blessed. She was a sinner who offered a sin offering in the Temple in Jerusalem.
All who elevate this Jewish woman to the seat of a pagan goddess, drag her great legacy down into the mucky gutters. Shame on the Pope who never seems to be able to stop his filthy blasphemies, and his promotion of idolatry as “holiness”. Repent or perish.
