“9 Days for Life” Novena Begins
“9 Days for Life,” a novena for the intention that all human life be respected, will begin on January 19 and continue through January 27.
You are invited to join thousands of Catholics across the country in nine days of prayer for life and human dignity. The prayer campaign, sponsored by the Committee on Pro Life Activities of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, includes the annual Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children on January 22. The novena and day of prayer are a time of recollection and reparation in observation of the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States. Each of the nine days highlights a related topic and includes an intercession, prayers, a reflection, an act of reparation, and more. You will find easy to follow guides, daily prayers, and reflections at www.portlanddiocese.org/9-days-life.
