Prayers for Portugal's Abortion Referendum

Rorate Caeli has invited all readers and their families to pray a novena for life to Our Lady, beginning on Our Lady's Saturday following Candlemas (February 3) and ending on February 11.

Before full communion is restored between our Churches, it is not yet common for the Orthodox to pray alongside Catholics. Yet, on this day, I humbly ask my readers to join the Catholics as they pray for right to life to remain protected in one of its last bastions in Europe.

The novena is not familiar among us Eastern Christians, so use the prayer of your choice.

"Now we allow that life begins with conception because we contend that the soul also begins from conception; life taking its commencement at the same moment and place that the soul does."
Tertullian, Apology 27, AD 210

I'll pray one hundred novenas if it will keep Portugal from going down the toilet.

Lord, have mercy! Christ, have mercy!
