A Letter From the USCCB
I was just made aware of this via Facebook.
Apparently, the Bishops have asked that all US Catholics begin to pray for Life, Marriage and Religious Liberty. This was made available on the USCCB’s website.
I’m a little upset that I haven’t heard about this until now, as this was posted on December 6, 2012. But, I’ll pass it off with the benefit of the doubt that everyone was busy with Advent and Christmas plans.
Here are a couple of the highlights edited:
1. Sundays after Christmas through Christ the King Sunday, parishes should hold a Eucharistic Holy Hour for Life, Marriage and Religious Liberty.
2. Pray the Rosary daily.
3. At all Masses, offer up specific intentions for the above intentions.
4. Abstain from meat and fast on Fridays.
5. Celebrate the Fortnight for Freedom in June/July 2013.
Again, read the whole thing, it will only take a minute.
Send this to your priest so that he can make announcements.
Priests, make these announcements at Mass.
