Independence Day Novena: June 26 - July 4

As the United States of America approaches the Fourth of July Independence Day celebration, Priests for Life invites all believers to join in saying the following prayer each day from June 26 through July 4.

God our Father, your Son Jesus spoke to us a message
of peace and taught us to live as brothers and sisters.
His message took form in the vision of our
Founding Fathers, as they fashioned a nation where all people might live as one.
This message lives on in our midst as a task for us today
and a promise for tomorrow.
We thank you, Father, for your blessings in the past,
and for all that, with your help, we must yet achieve.
Bless our nation and bless each of us. As we celebrate our independence, may we extend its blessings to our youngest brothers and sisters, the children in the womb.
Hasten the day when our nation will be a
nation with liberty and justice, not just for
some, but for all, through Christ our Lord. Amen
