Our Lady of America, The Immaculate Virgin teaches us to call upon her powerful intercession through these words: “BY THY HOLY AND IMMACULATE CONCEPTION OH MARY, DELIVER US FROM EVIL”.   She reveals that the gift of her Immaculate conception is powerful in driving evil from our midst.

While there are many evils in our world there are few that the Church declares to be intrinsically evil, meaning that it is pure evil and that no good can ever come from it.  Abortion is one such intrinsic evil.

During the 40 Days for Life, Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki, Diocese of Springfield-in-Illinois called upon the intercession of Our Lady of America, The Immaculate Virgin to deliver his diocese from the scourge of abortion.  In particular, he seeks the closing of the abortion facilities in Springfield and Granite City (See article and note banner in background).

Bishop Paprocki, invites all and in particular those with a devotion to Our Lady of America to join with him in seeking The Immaculate Virgin’s intercession.   Please petition the Blessed Virgin under the title of Our Lady of America to deliver the diocese from the scourge of abortion.
