Newsroom (October 03, 2021 9:10 AM Gaudium Press) The “40 Days for Life” campaign, promoted by a pro-life group, is encouraging Catholics around the world to offer Masses, prayers and fasting calling for an end to abortion.
The organizers are asking Catholics who wish to be part of this initiative to order a Holy Mass for the end of abortion in their respective parishes. “Let us make sure that, on this day, Masses are offered for this same intention throughout the world, so that our supplication may be heard by God through the greatest gift He has left us,” the organizers say in a message.
