'Few contemporary issues are as sorrowful and as contentious as abortion, and when musician John Bonaduce set out to compose a prayer service to remember the unborn, he too tried to catch --- through music --- glimpses of God's voice and healing breath in this issue. Over ten years the prayer service developed into a Mass, which was held at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels Jan. 23, 2004.

The liturgy, named the "Shantigarh Requiem for the Unborn", is a journey through Scripture. The very first words sung by a choir of more than 100 are from the Book of Wisdom: "Before the Lord, the whole universe is as a grain or a drop of morning dew. And though we are small his love is great, for he is Lord and lover of souls."   Bonaduce said those words struck him as a perfect memorial for the unborn.

"If the Lord can see us in a drop of morning dew, I invite the listener to see life in a single cell or in an unborn child. If God can make that reach, it's my hope that we can," he said..". — Ellie Hidalgo, The Tidings Newspaper, January 16, 2004
