Nine Days of Prayer, Penance and Pilgrimage
I received an email notifying me that the USCCB has asked all faithful Catholics to pray a Novena for the unborn. Here’s the email:
The U.S. Bishops have called for Nine Days of Prayer, Penance and Pilgrimage from January 19th to 27th to mark the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court’s infamous decision making it legal for a woman to kill her unborn child at any time during her pregnancy. Since that tragic day, more than 55 million of our most vulnerable brothers and sisters have been killed, and countless other lives have been shattered. Please participate in this spiritual battle to protect our most vulnerable brothers and sisters who have no voice but ours.
To receive the novena:
- by email – www.usccb.org/9days
- by text – text “9days” to 99000
