HLI Calls on all Pro-Lifers to Participate in Historic World-Wide Vigil for Nascent Life

FRONT ROYAL, Va., Nov. 11, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Human Life International (HLI), the world’s largest pro-life organization, today called on all defenders of life to join its international affiliates and leaders in the “Prayer Vigil for All Nascent Human Life” on November 27, coinciding with vespers of the First Sunday of Advent. Earlier this year Pope Benedict XVI announced the worldwide vigil, and urged all dioceses around the world to participate as much as they are able. As part of its effort to raise awareness about the event, HLI has sponsored an international petition of solidarity with the pope. “We hope that Catholics understand the historical significance of Pope Benedict’s invitation,” said Joseph Meaney, HLI’s director of international coordination. “The Holy Father for the first time in history has asked the Universal Catholic Church to gather together in a common liturgical event and pray for our preborn brothers and sisters who are being slaughtered around the world by abortion and other attacks of the culture of death.”
