As Catholics, we know prayer is what strengthens and sustains the efforts to defend the sanctity of life. That’s why this year, all K of C members are encouraged to spiritually support national, state, and local Marches for Life, as well as the Knights’ efforts to build a Culture of Life, by participating in 9 Days for Life. 9 Days for Life is a multi-faceted novena offered each year by the bishops of the United States for the respect and protection of every human life. Each day, a different intention is accompanied by a short reflection, suggested actions, and related information. A special webpage has been created for Knights to participate in this year’s novena found at You are encouraged to visit the page and sign up for the daily emails and to participate in the novena between Tuesday, Jan. 21 and Wednesday, Jan. 29. Christ has called all Christians to love one another as He has loved us. That includes all humans from conception to natural death because He didn’t include any exceptions. This novena is one way we can express to Him our willingness to follow His example. Check it out.
