Monday, January 22nd, is a day of Penance

Louis the Pious doing penance.

As a reminder to all readers in the United States (and even for those in other countries as well), Monday, January 22nd is the 34th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade:

On this anniversary of the Supreme Court decision, Roe vs. Wade (1973), this day shall be observed in all dioceses of the United States as a particular day of penance for violations to the dignity of the human person committed through acts of abortion, and of prayer for the full restoration of the legal guarentee of the right to life (GIRM, #373).
