Terri’s Day

March 31, 2009

“The Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation” and “Priests for Life” invite individuals, families, churches and organizations to observe today as the

 “International Day of Prayer and Remembrance
for Terri Schindler Schiavo, and
All of Our Vulnerable Brothers and Sisters”

the fourth anniversary of Terri’s death. The two organizations established this day last year. Its purpose is to foster education, prayer, and activism regarding discrimination against the disabled, and advocacy for people in situations similar to what Terri and her family faced.

Here is a prayer suggested in honor of this day:

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life, and for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.

I know that life is always a good, and that it never loses its value when it is beset by weakness or injury.

Lord, thank you for the life of Terri Schindler-Schiavo. Even in her suffering and death she revealed Your glory and truth that life is always sacred.

As I remember Terri, I also commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, and never to stop defending life until all my brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice not just for some, but for all, through Christ our Lord. Amen!

That prayer is found at

Ave Maria University is hosting “The National Mass for Terri’s Day” at 5:15 p.m. (tonight). If you cannot attend, please say a prayer at that time, in union with all who are able to be present.  Fr. Frank Pavone will be the main celebrant, along with Father Thomas Euteneuer, President of Human Life International.
