The Memorare Army Prayer Campaign for religious liberty continues apace … we are about halfway to our goal of a million Memorares in response to the new health care mandate and all the other recent attacks on religious liberty.
We appreciate the attention the prayer campaign has gotten from the Cardinal Newman Society.
We started this prayer campaign in response to Archbishop Joseph Naumann’s request to pray and fast for religious liberty.
“We cannot — and we will not — comply with this unjust law,” he said in a letter read at all Masses in the Archdiocese last Sunday. “People of faith cannot be made second class citizens.”
So far we have heard from one parish and one high school that want to join. We’re developing materials for organizational memberships as a result.
The Memorare — which is one of the prayers recommended in the Compendium of the Catechism — is a big part of Benedictine College life. We begin all Administration meetings with the Memorare and many campus staff meetings. The students say it together after campus Masses. In Mass today at St. Benedict’s Parish, our pastor — himself a former Benedictine College president — led the congregation in the Memorare for religious freedom.
Prayer works. As Archbishop Naumann said in his letter, “Without God, we can do nothing; with God, nothing is impossible.
Please join in the Memorare Army prayer campaign.
