please pray

USCCB Committee on Pro-Life is asking all CDA members to offer the following prayer daily from March 25 through June 30; when a decision on the availability of chemical abortion is expected.

Dearest St. Joseph, at the word of an angel, you lovingly took Mary into your home. As God’s humble servant, you guided the Holy Family on the road to Bethlehem, welcomed Jesus as your own son in the shelter of a manger, and fled far from your homeland for the safety of both Mother and Child. We praise God that as their faithful protector, you never hesitated to sacrifice for those entrusted to you. May your example inspire us also to welcome, cherish, and safe-guard God’s most precious gift of life. Help us to faithfully commit ourselves to the service and defense of human life-especially where it is vulnerable or threatened. Obtain for us the grace to do the will of God in all things. Amen.

PRAYER for canonization of
charlene richard

Our Father in Heaven, moved by the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ, Your Son and our Savior, we lift up our hearts to You and ask that, if it be Your will, You grant our request. May Your servant and native of Louisiana, Charlene Marie Richard, be raised to sainthood by the Holy Father, Successor of the Apostle St. Peter, and visible head of Jesus' Church on earth.

We entrust this prayer to You through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of Jesus, under her title by which she is known as the Patroness of Louisiana: The Immaculate Conception.

Our Father... Hail Mary... Glory Be
