USCCB: fast for intention of pro-life workers

Catholic World News - March 15, 2013

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has asked Catholics to offer their fasting and abstinence from meat on March 15 “for all who help to build a Culture of Life: that even in the midst of trials, the Lord would strengthen their faith and help them know His saving power.”

The USCCB has asked Catholics to fast and abstain from meat on all Fridays until the conclusion of the Year of Faith; abstinence is obligatory on Fridays of Lent.

A USCCB flyer for the day also advised prayer to the angels “for their help in protecting life and illuminating the minds of those involved in efforts against life.”
