Friday Prayer Intention

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops have issued to the faithful a Call to Prayer: Pledge to Fast for the protection of life, marriage, and religious liberty.  The faithful are asked to join the Bishops in prayer and fasting each Friday through the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe (November 24, 2014).

Each Friday, the USCCB will send an e-mail to text reminder to those who have signed the pledge with a particular intention.  Today's intention, written by His Excellency the Most Reverend Kevin Rhoads, Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend and Chairman of the USCCB Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life, and Youth, is:
For a greater reverence for the gift of marriage and family in our nation and for the healing of those suffering from troubled or broken marriages, especially children.
Please, join our shepherds in prayer and fasting today for a greater recognition of the real beauty and truth of marriage that joins one man to one woman in love until death.
