Various lay and religious organizations have organized a Vigil of Prayer for Spain on April 18, to pray for the difficult situation the country faces due to secularism and abortion.
The Vigil will have as a special intention the complete reversal of the country’s law on abortion, which has led to the deaths of millions of unborn babies since it was approved.
Participants will also be invited to pray for the strengthening of the family. Organizers point to the attacks of “rapid divorce” and the state-sponsored course “Education for Citizenship,” which usurps the rights of parents to decide what kind of moral formation their children should receive.
Prayers will also be offered for an end to terrorism and for the right to express one’s faith in the public square.
