January 22nd - Bishops Call for Day of Penance

Tomorrow marks that sorrowful day when the United States Supreme Court issued its decision in the case of Roe v. Wade.  The decision that unleashed the scourge of abortion on our country.





As we prepare for the March for Life on Friday, January 25th, the United States Bishops call us to a day of penance tomorrow:
In all the dioceses of the United States of America, January 22 (or January 23, when January 22 falls on a Sunday) shall be observed as a particular day of penance for violations to the dignity of the human person committed through acts of abortion, and of prayer for the full restoration of the legal guarantee of the right to life. The Mass "For Peace and Justice" (no. 22 of the "Masses for Various Needs") should be celebrated with violet vestments as an appropriate liturgical observance for this day.General Instruction of the Roman Missal, no. 373
