Dallas Bloggers' First Friday Intentions

We are three bloggers who also live in the Dallas area. We are deeply committed to ending abortion in this country. To that end, we have committed ourselves to the following: On each First Friday for the next eleven months, we will fast and pray before the Blessed Sacrament for an end to abortion. This will culminate at the annual Dallas March for Life in January of 2008, where we will join our bishop and the faithful of this city in marching to the courthouse where Roe was originally argued.

We ask anyone reading these words to join us. Fast and pray with us each First Friday, no matter how far removed you are from Dallas. Spend some time in Eucharistic adoration, and implore Christ to end this curse. We especially ask other Dallas area bloggers and residents to join us, at least in spirit. If you would rather not fast, then pray for those of us that do.

Deep curtsy to Happy Catholic

I may not be able to fast every First Friday for the next 11 months but I will offer my usual First Friday Mass prayers, Adoration and Benediction time for this intention.

Please join me, Band of Bloggers!

OK I feel really dumb asking this, but what precisely is included in the First Fridays? I know about First Saturdays....

emily: According to the visions Jesus revealed to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, he would grant special graces, under certain specifications, to those who honored his Sacred Heart on 9 consecutive First Fridays of the month.

There's a nice overview here: http://www.catholicculture.org/lit/prayers/view.cfm?id=876
