COME TOGETHER FOR PRAYER ON THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF ROE V. WADE SUPREME COURT DECISION

All Children are Loved by God

Most Rev. Joseph Strickland, Bishop of Tyler, is asking that all Catholics join in prayer on Tuesday, January 22, 2013, the 40th anniversary of the legalization of abortion in the United States. Wherever you are at noon on Jan. 22, please pause to pray 40 Hail Mary’s that our society may move to a greater respect for the sanctity of life and an end to abortion. Let us support each other in prayerful thanksgiving for the truth that God revealed to us and let us call our neighbors to support the sanctity of life from conception to natural death.

Here is a sitge where you will also find a Novena – Nine days of prayer, penance and pilgrimage, which is part of a pastoral initiative to help build a culture that is favorable to life, marriage and religious freedom. http://www.usccb.org/about/pro-life-activities/january-roe-events/nine-days-of-prayer-penance-and-pilgrimage-marking-the-40th-anniversary-of-roe-v-wade.cfm
More information can be found at http://www.usccb.org/life-marriage-liberty.

You can also text “9days” to 99000 and the USCCB will send you daily messages/readings for the novena beginning January 19.

I ask all brothers and sisters in Christ and people of good will to join us in prayer at noon on January 22, using the prayer of your choice for the end of abortion and the respect for all life. You may find the novena a convenient and inspiring way to surround January 22 with prayer.

May God bless our nation –
Mother Susan Catherine, DDH
