Bishops Announce Pro-Life ‘Prayer, Penance and Pilgrimage’

The pro-life committee of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is inviting us to prayer beginning Saturday, to end the terrible sin of abortion:

The U.S. bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities urges Catholics nationwide to participate in Nine Days of Prayer, Penance and Pilgrimage, January 19-27, marking the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. The intentions for these nine days will be for healing and conversion, for elected officials who support abortion and for all people whose lives have been forever changed by an abortion.

 ”The bishops recognize that prayer is the foundation of all our efforts on behalf of human life,” said Tom Grenchik, executive director of the Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). “These nine days of focused prayer and sacrifice are a great opportunity for people across the nation to unite their voices in prayer to God. Through this prayer campaign, I hope that many will be blessed with a new spirit of faith and encouragement in their pro-life efforts.”

 Key events during the Nine Days are the National Prayer Vigil for Life, January 24-25 (http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/resources/index.cfm), and the Rally and March for Life, January 25 (http://www.marchforlife.org), all being held in Washington.
