Tuesday, February 11, 2014: Day of Prayer and Fasting
Montreal Archbishop Christian Lepine is calling all faithful to a day of prayer and fasting to commemorate the World Day for the Sick.
The day also holds special significance, said the archbishop in an open letter, as the Quebec legislature reconvenes tomorrow and will be voting shortly on legislation which will permit physicians ot euthanize their patients.
The archbishop concluded his letter by inviting all persons to come to the Cathedral tomorrow evening for a Eucharistic celebration. The purpose of the celebration is to "celebrate in solidarity with those who are sick and suffering."
