Safeguarding Marriage and the power of prayer
The Good Counsel Network have sent news of a couple of parishes that are holding the Forty Hours Devotion in advance of the Government's proposal to introduce legislation for same-sex marriage. It seems that the second reading may be as soon as 5 February, so we do need to get on our knees.
If your parish has not had the 40 hours devotion, I do recommend it. We have had it for a few years at Blackfen and it is a blessing not only for those who directly take part but also for the parish and the neighbourhood.
If you can't organise 40 hours, you might want to have at least a Holy Hour of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament with the intention of safeguarding marriage.
If you do have an event of this sort, please put a note in the comments box or email me and I will post updates.
