January 06, 2014
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has announced that a novena for life will take place around the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.
“On January 22, 2014 our nation will remember the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade,” the conference notes on its website. “Since that tragic decision, more than 55 million children's lives have been lost to abortion, and the lives of millions of their parents have been shattered. In prayerful recognition, ‘Nine Days of Prayer, Penance and Pilgrimage’ will take place January 18-26, 2014.”
