CALL TO PRAYER
The Catholic Bishops of the United States have called for a
nationwide effort to advance a movement for Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty through prayer, penance, and sacrifice.
"Pray for our nation. Pray for life, marriage and religious liberty.
We are in need of spiritual stamina during this time of unprecedented challenges." Join the movement --
Let us love our faith,
defend our faith, and live
A primary task for the
pro-life movement is to draw
society into deeper
reflection about the
mystery, wonder and value of
human life. We need to
promote an alternative to
the technological outlook
which seeks to control and
manipulate birth and death,
to reduce nature to
"matter", to elevate having
over being, to depersonalize
the body and sexuality, and
to replace the criterion of
personal dignity with the
criterion of efficiency,
usefulness. Our task is to
call our brothers and
sisters' hearts and minds to
wonder and awe.
