Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of the Unborn

On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court legalized abortion throughout the United States in its companion decisions Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. Since that time, millions of children have lost their lives and millions of women and families have been wounded by abortion.

The General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM), no. 373, designates January 22 as a particular day of prayer and penance, called the “Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children.”  The Church directs:  In all the Dioceses of the United States of America, January 22 (or January 23, when January 22 falls on a Sunday) shall be observed as a particular day of prayer for the full restoration of the legal guarantee of the right to life and of penance for violations to the dignity of the human person committed through acts of abortion.

As individuals, we are called to observe this day through the penitential practices of prayer, fasting and/or almsgiving.  Our chapel will be open on Wednesday, January 22, and the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed for adoration from 9:30 am until 7:00 pm.  All are invited to come and pray, for any length of time, for the protection of all life from the womb to the tomb, for those working in the abortion industry to find new employment, and especially for the walking wounded - the millions of woman and men who are suffering from the effects of an abortion.
