Prayer is urgently needed for Britain

The prayers of people of all faiths are greatly needed in Britain as we continue our fight against the sex and relationships proposals in the government's Children Schools and Families bill.  Ed Balls, the Secretary of State for Children Schools and Families, made clear this week that one of the purposes of the Bill is that in all schools, including faith schools, schoolchildren must have access to abortion. This is, arguably, the greatest advance in the culture of death in Britain since the passage of the Abortion Act in 1967.  The Government's bill is being given the general support of the Catholic Education Service, an agency of the Catholic bishops of England and Wales.

I'm pleased to draw the attention of Catholic visitors to the events below in London next month. For Catholics, Our Lady of Guadalupe has a special role as patroness of the unborn.  I hope that as many as possible to pray for our children, our country and, as a Catholic myself, for our bishops at this critical time.
