Priests for Life Announces Ongoing Novena re HHS Mandate


Priests for Life

March 09, 2012


New York, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is making available a prayer novena for the intention that the unjust HHS Mandate will be completely reversed. 


“We already conducted a nationwide novena for this intention,” Fr. Frank explained, noting that Churches, schools, pro-life groups, families and individuals around the country were invited to participate. “But because the battle continues, so must the prayers. We therefore are announcing today that this is a continuous novena.”


The nine prayers can be found at The prayers are written in such a way that Christians of any denomination can use them. They focus on themes such as loyalty to God above any earthly authority, participation in the legislative process, repentance and conversion, conscience and religious freedom, enlightenment for civil leaders, courage for Church leaders, and unity. As one of the prayers says in part, 


“Lord Jesus,
You continue to proclaim your Word
in your Church today.
Give us the same clarity, courage, and determination
That your apostles had,
That we may not allow any obstacle or earthly power
To intimidate us into silence or compromise.”


Fr. Pavone also pointed out that these prayers can be particularly appropriate as people across the nation prepare for the religious freedom rallies to be held on March 23, and as they conduct those rallies. Priests for Life has been instrumental in assisting the planning of these national events, and is responsible for organizing the New York City rally for that day.


Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
