Fasting for an end to Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton

From a full-page piece in my parish’s bulletin this weekend, our pro-life organization is promoting a fast for the eight days (July 23-30) preceding the Supreme Court review of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton as “no longer just”. It’s a voluntary fast, but I think giving up a little something for a few days to help strengthen your prayer and bond with those who suffer before ever breathing air is only a tiny thing to ask. If your parish isn’t participating in this fast, maybe you should suggest something to them. Israel was saved time and again by prayer and fasting – perhaps this is the time ordained for the return to grace our country so desperately needs. Orate, fratres!

N.B. Interestingly, I haven’t seen anything about this hearing in any of the pro-life sites I’ve visited or in trying to discern the Supreme Court schedule. If someone could confirm this that’d be wonderful…
