Right now, Catholics in the United States are in the middle of a powerful period of nine days of prayer, penance and pilgrimage. Did you know that the U.S. Catholic bishops are asking us to pray a novena for life from January 17-25? This novena, easily accessible by computer, phone, or by download, can unite us in these days surrounding the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion throughout pregnancy. An end to abortion is not the only intention. We are praying for life at all stages: children in need of adoptive homes, an end to the death penalty, awareness of the tragic reality of domestic violence, those mourning the loss of a child through abortion, those near the end of their lives, and much more.
