The United States Council of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has called upon the faithful to pray and fast on Fridays in August and September for the intention of legal protection of human life. During these nine Fridays, participants are encouraged to pray one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be for the intention of the novena, and to fast. Learn more about this novena and the weekly prayer intentions.
The upcoming Supreme Court vacancy, the bishops note, is an occasion requiring focused prayer: pray that a chance in the Supreme Court may move our nation closer to the day when every human being is protected in law and welcomed in life.
