Pray on March 25 for Religious Liberty!


Do business owners have religious freedom?

Can ‘free citizens’ be forced to pay for child-killing drugs?

On Tuesday, March 25, the United States Supreme Court will hear arguments in two cases (Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood) that could dramatically alter the future of religious liberty in America.

That’s why we have launched our National Prayer Campaign for Religious Liberty.

The court is set to hear arguments in these critical cases on March 25th – the Feast of the Annunciation. The day when the Blessed Virgin was told by the Angel Gabriel that she would give birth in 9 months to the Savior of the World.

A coincidence? No way.

Religious liberty is at the heart of these court cases. And while the Supreme Court has incredible power, the power of prayer is unmatched.

That’s why we are asking every CV member to commit to praying to Our Lady of the Annunciation. We printed out tens of thousands of prayer cards and sent them to parishes and schools and to CV members nationwide.

This prayer reflection is based on a Marian consecration by Patrick Cardinal O’Boyle, former Archbishop of Washington — and it was prayed in parishes throughout the United States in November of 1959.

Religious liberty has allowed the Church to flourish in this land for two centuries.

At this hour, when the right to practice our faith is on the line, let it be known that we Catholics not only stood our ground – but that we also fell to our knees in prayer.

Prayer for Our Nation

God our Father in Heaven, you chose Mary as the fairest of your daughters; Holy Spirit, you overshadowed Mary at the Annunciation; God the Son, you became incarnate in the womb of Mary, your Mother. In union with Mary, we adore you, the Most Holy Trinity and acknowledge that you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, hold eternal dominion and authority over all nations.

Most Holy Trinity, we place the United States of America into the hands of Mary Immaculate in order that she may present our country to you. Through her we wish to praise and thank you for the great resources of our land and for the freedom, which has been our heritage. Through the intercession of Mary, have mercy on the Catholic Church in the United States. Grant us peace. Have mercy on our president and on all the officers of our government. Grant us a fruitful economy born of justice and charity. Raise up and protect all of our families. Through the intercession of our Mother, have mercy on the sick, the poor, the tempted, sinners—on all who are in need. Above all, we ask Mary to intercede on our behalf that you would protect our conscience rights and religious freedom, upon which our country was founded.

Mary, Immaculate Virgin, Our Mother, Patroness of our land, we honor you and give ourselves to you. Wrap your mantel of protection around each of us and all our fellow citizens. Protect us from all evil and harm. Pray for us, that acting always according to your will and the Will of your Divine Son, we may live and die pleasing to God.

    Why must we all pay for birth control?
    If you want this you are in favor of free birth control. Pay for all medication, life-sustaining. That is what is important. Drugs that are necessary for life.
    We all know birth control isn’t necessary for health or life. Unless one becomes pregnant and the child is killed as a means of birth control. Wake up!

    To Rich: No, it only means that the SCOTUS has once again made a mistake. It has happened before: Roe v. Wade 1973 and Plessy v. Ferguson 1896. The latter ruling was overturned in 1956 and the former will be overturned when humans realize that God is God and we are not.

  • Claudia Graham

    If SCOTUS rules against Hobby Lobby, it means they are wrong and made a grave error; it has happened before T least twice (Roe v. Wa22/73), (Plessy vs. Ferguson 1896).

  • Jean

    Thank you for all you do to protect religious freedom for ALL Americans. Not everyone understands the implications for us all if we lose this fight.

  • Allen A. Baumann

    Rich: Your maligned statement sheds proof that you are submerged in secular-socialist-communist-degenerate progrssive-democrat idology.
    Neither Mother Mary nor anyone other than Jesus/the Father/the Holy Spirit can make something happen absolutely. Your arrogance and left wing hubris slithers from your slimy reasoning.
