Interfaith Novena to Stop the HHS Mandate

From the Pro-Life Action League: "Prayer is the foundation of all our efforts to fight President Obama’s HHS Mandate, which forces all employer health plans to provide free contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs, without regard to objections of conscience. Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life has composed a Novena for this intention, which we are inviting all to pray in the days leading up to the big Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom."

Don't forget to attend a Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally near you on October 20.  Find yours here 

Day 8

Your Son Jesus Christ has taught us
That those who mourn over their sins
And over the evils in the world
Are blessed indeed, and will be comforted.

We come before you today
In that spirit of Christian mourning
Over how far our nation's policies
Have strayed from your law
And from the respect for life and conscience
That every law should reflect.

In the power of your Spirit,
Our mourning does not make us weak,
But rather renews our strength
To work for change.

Enable us, then, to speak up
And educate our fellow citizens,
And to make our voices heard
To our elected officials.

Reverse the unjust policies
That have been forced upon us,
And restore our nation
To the principles of freedom and justice
Upon which it was founded.

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
