The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops invites the faithful to fast and pray the rosary on Friday, May 13th, the feast of Our Lady of Fatima, offering these prayers and sacrifices for the protection of life from conception to natural death. 

We especially pray for "Our Blessed Mother’s intercession and guidance as the Church continues to walk with mothers and families in need, and continues to promote alternatives to abortion, and seeks to create a culture of life," writes the USCCB. "As Catholics, let us witness to the beautiful gift of life with civility and love, and with our peaceful prayers and our compassionate service to all those in need."

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
