Although this is a late post, it’s never too late to PRAY…In all of the Catholic churches in the U.S., January 22 has been designated as a particular day of prayer and penance, called the “Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children”. We are called to observe this day through prayer, fasting and/or giving alms. This day of penance is for all victims of abortion.
Pope Francis says, “Human life must always be defended from its beginning in the womb and must be recognized as a gift of God that guarantees the future of humanity.”
Remember that there are alternatives to abortion – if you know someone who is pregnant and afraid, please call 800-712-HELP (4357).
If someone you know is suffering after abortion, please call Project Rachel at 888-456-HOPE (4673).
Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of life!
