Dearly Brothers and Sisters, Sons and Daughters:

Next weekend is the closest week to August 10, the Feast of our Patron St. Lawrence. We will be celebrating our Patron next weekend. May St. Lawrence continue to pray for us.

A few weeks ago, Archbishop Thompson asked all priests and their parishes to join him in fasting for Life on nine Fridays in a row – starting this past Friday. Sorry to get this to you one Friday short – but Fr. Martin and I are participating in this, and I invite you to do so as well. The text of the letter follows.

In Christ, In prayer,

My Dear Brother Priest:

I invite you, our parish life coordinators, and your parishioners to join me and Catholics nationwide in a weekly moment of prayer from early August to late September 2018 for the legal protection of human life.

As soon as Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, pro-abortion groups began lobbying the U.S. Senate to reject any nominee who does not promise to endorse Roe v. Wade. We should certainly raise grave concerns about a confirmation process that is being grossly distorted by efforts to subject judicial nominees to a litmus test of support for abortion.

And we must pray.

Each Friday, from August 3 to September 28, 2018, we’ll have the opportunity to join in a nine-week effort of prayer, fasting and education that a change in the U.S. Supreme Court will move our nation closer to the day when every human being is protected in law and welcomed in life.

As part of the USCCB Call to Prayer, participants can receive weekly prayer reminders by text message or email. In addition to the current invitation to fast on Fridays, participants will be encouraged to pray one Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be for this intention and will receive important facts about how Roe is not health care, is bad law, and fails women.

Please encourage your parishioners to sign up at www.usccb.org/pray for this and the continuing Call to Prayer initiatives…

Thank you for your continued, prayerful leadership.

Sincerely in Christ,
Archbishop Charles C. Thompson, JCL
