Colorado bishops call for prayer and penance on Aug. 28

The bishops of Colorado have set Friday, August 28th, 2015 as a day of prayer and penance for Catholics and all people of good will in Colorado. The bishops are calling on each one of us to pray and offer penance “in response to Planned Parenthood’s horrific actions and all those involved in the procurement and use of aborted baby organs.”

Some examples of prayer and penance are:
• Attending Mass and receiving Holy Communion
• Meditating on the Word of God
• Spending time in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
• Praying the Holy Rosary
• Reciting the Chaplet of Divine Mercy
• Praying the Way of the Cross
• Fasting and abstaining from eating meat.

Planned Parenthood baby-parts-sale scandal hits Denver, CSU

“We do tissue collection for CU — CSU in Fort Collins collected some.”
— Dr. Savita Ginde, in undercover YouTube video discussing Planned Parenthood’s methods of compensation for fetal donations

“As Catholics, we need to be extra vigilant and attentive because there are going to be women in our pews who see these videos, and this exposure is going to reopen wounds of abortion that have been buried for many years, especially for those who were told to sign those waivers and that the “tissue” was going to be used in a positive manner. Now they’re going to have the realization that these were complete babies who were dismembered.”
— Lynn Grandon, executive director of Lighthouse Women’s Center

Colorado State University President Tony Frank says he does “not believe that Colorado State University has violated federal or Colorado state law.”
