Today is the eighth day of the '9 Days for Life' Novena for the Protection of Human Life:
Intercession: "May civic leaders work for the protection of all human life, in every stage and circumstance."
Prayers: Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be
- Sacrifice some of your free time to do a small act of service, such as making breakfast for a family member, writing a note of encouragement to a coworker, or praying for the intentions of a friend.
- Sometimes restrictions on religious freedom constrain our efforts to live out the Gospel of Life. We must be free to live out our Catholic faith in the public square. Offer this Prayer for Religious Liberty, that Christians may always be free to respect, protect, and defend human life.
- Offer some other sacrifice, prayer, or act of penance that you feel called to do for today's intention.
