Days of Prayer, Fasting Being Organized in Response to Planned Parenthood ‘Horrific Actions’
“A society can only be considered socially just if it protects the most vulnerable among us”
Colorado’s Catholic Bishops are encouraging the clergy and faithful of the Archdiocese of Denver, The Diocese of Pueblo and the Diocese of Colorado Springs as well as the faithful throughout the country to observe Friday, August 28, 2015, as a day of prayer and penance in response to Planned Parenthood’s horrific actions and all those involved in the procurement and use of aborted baby organs.
We also pray and call on all people of good will in Colorado and beyond to pray that those involved in research and medicine will fix their sights on recognizing the sacredness of life and refrain from putting human life at the service of science. A society can only be considered socially just if it protects the most vulnerable among us.
One of the entities that has used a procurement company to purchase aborted baby organs is Colorado State University.
You can google your U.S. Senators and Representatives as well as your state and local senators and representatives and call there offices and leave a message or email expressing your disgust at this horror and requesting that Planned Parenthood be shut down and ask them to respond to you. Best to call after hours or weekends so you will be assured to get machine where you can leave a message. Be respectful in your words or email or letter but be forceful in the request that Planned Parenthood needs to be closed down.
Some examples of prayer and penance are:
Attending mass and receiving Holy Communion
Meditating on The Word Of God
Spending Time In Adoration In The Blessed Sacrament
Praying The Holy Rosary
Reciting The Chaplet Of Divine Mercy
Making The Way Of The Cross
Fasting and Abstaining from eating meat
