"A substantial number also said their faith lives have been enriched in isolation as they spend more time in personal and family prayer, reflection and study."

Make a plan now for fasting and prayer tomorrow. Archbishop Cordileone has asked us to do fast every Friday for an end to the pandemic. The US Bishops have just called for fasting and prayer for an end to racism tomorrow, which is the 57th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech. Ask for the intercession of the saints who have fought for racial equality such as St. Katharine Drexel and St. Peter Claver. We must continue to engage the battle against the current evils of our society and in the words of Dr. King, refuse to believe ‘that the bank of justice is bankrupt.’ #Fasting #Prayer #Rosary #Adoration #Covid #Justice
