In a comment, Fr Ben reminded me that the Forty Days of prayer and fasting for life will begin on Sept. 23rd, the Feast of St. Pio of Pietelcina.
The following is taken from the website:
"40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion in America.
The mission of the campaign is to bring together the body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 day campaign of prayer, fasting, and peaceful activism, with the purpose of repentance, to seek God’s favor to turn hearts and minds from a culture of death to a culture of life, thus bringing an end to abortion in America."
As Jesus once said about a certain demon, "This kind can only be driven out by prayer and fasting."
