Today is an opportunity for reparation.
The Good Counsel Network have called for us to fast and pray to end abortion. I have reposted the message they have sent me - please do what you can, God will do the rest.
Tomorrow, Thursday 27th October 2011 is the 44th anniversary of the legalization of Abortion becoming Law in this country. In response to this we have chosen this day to be this month’s National Day of Prayer and Fasting for the end of Abortion and Euthanasia. Please join us in this day in one of the following ways:
FastingFast from all food except bread and water for the dayOrFast from a particular food or luxury, e.g. chocolate, alcohol, cigarettes, TV.Fast from whatever you can given your state of health etc, but make sure it is something that involves a sacrifice to yourself.
PrayerWe are asking people to say a Rosary (or an extra Rosary if you say it daily already).You could also offer an extra effort such as going to Mass (or an extra Mass) on the day, or going to Adoration. You can even pray before a closed tabernacle if Adoration is not available near you
(On account of the late notice it may be a good idea to start the fast 24 hour from this moment).
