Title: Fast and Pray
Post by: Poche on October 25, 2013, 02:34:34 AM
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is asking Catholics to pray, fast, and abstain from meat on Friday, October 25, “for the protection of every unborn child-- that each one may be lovingly welcomed and cherished by all.”

In December 2012, the US bishops announced a call to prayer and penance whose “overall focus is to invite Catholics to pray for rebuilding a culture favorable to life and marriage and for increased protections of religious liberty. Campaign components include monthly Eucharistic holy hours in cathedrals and parishes, daily family rosary, special Prayers of the Faithful at all Masses, fasting and abstinence on Fridays, and the second observance of a Fortnight for Freedom.” The campaign will last until the conclusion of the Year of Faith.

The Friday prayer and fasting intentions change weekly; the links below describe how to receive the intentions in advance, typically on the afternoon of the previous day.

Here is another designated day of prayer and penance  designated by the Catholic Bishops
of The United States
in reparation for "the massive killing that has resulted from the Roe v. Wade decision..."
This flyer was in my church bulletin, it also has an attached novena, I  started it late, so I may do it over
The course of a day, reciting it once an hour: but here it is. It is linked to
A site that I won't mention here, just to keep our SDF site tidy and removed from the world.  :)

Prayer of Reparation

God and Father of Life,
You have created every human person,
And have opened the way for each to have eternal life.

We live in the shadow of death.
Tens of millions of your children have been killed
because of the Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion.

Father, have mercy on us.
Heal our land
And accept our offering of prayer and penance.
In your love for us,
Turn back the scourge of abortion.

May each of us exult in hearts full of hope
And hands full of mercy
And work together to build a culture of life.

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Heavenly Father, Divine Trinity,
I pray you will strengthen everyone with Hope in Your Love and Providence, especially those who are confronted by questions about the viability of life.
