Cardinal encourages Catholics to take part in novena of prayer, penance for life

Catholic World News - January 16, 2014

Cardinal Seán O’Malley of Boston, chairman of the United Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, encouraged Catholics to take part in a novena of prayer, penance, and pilgrimage (January 18-26) around the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision.

“By our participation in these 9 Days for Life, as we call upon the Lord for the healing and conversion of our nation and those impacted by the culture of death, we are also reminded -- through the very act of prayer -- of our beautiful dependence on God and His deep love for each of us,” he said.
