Pray with the bishops to end abortion!

On January 22 our nation will mark the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal throughout the U.S.
Since that tragic decision, more than 55 million children’s lives have been lost to abortion, and many suffer that loss — often in silence.
Join thousands of Catholics across the country coming together in prayer for a “culture of life” from Saturday, January 18 – Sunday, January 26!

Day Seven: Friday, January 24, 2014

Intercession:

For elected leaders who oppose any restriction on the abortion license: may God allow them to grasp the brutal violence of abortion and the reality of post-abortion suffering experienced by countless women and men.

Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be

Reflection:

On this feast of St. Francis de Sales, let us consider these words of the great saint: “All that we do must be motivated by love and not force. We must love to obey rather than fear to disobey.” St. Francis reminds us that all of our actions must be borne of a spirit of love, and that we find our freedom in living the truth. As we defend the dignity of human life, let us ask St. Francis de Sales to pray for us so that everything we say and do for unborn children and their grieving parents is imbued with both compassion and truth.

Acts of Reparation (choose one)

Go to Confession—today, if possible—or during this week.

Fast from snacking today. Eat three meals only.

Today, go visit an adoration chapel and spend an hour with Jesus.
