A Call to Prayer, Pledge to Fast

You will, I hope, recall that the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops have invited the faithful to fast and abstain from meat on Fridays through the Solemnity of Lord Jesus Christ the King and to pray each Friday for a particular intention for Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty.

As our intention for tomorrow, the Bishops have proposed the following:
For the approval of laws which will protect health care professionals from being forced to violate their consciences.
As you pray for Boston, Massachusetts and West, Texas, I hope you will remember this important intention, as well.
