Fasting For Families

A group of devoted Catholics and other believers are engaged in a "Fast 4 Families" on the National Mall, to call attention to, and pray for the success of, comprehensive immigration reform. The group was visited by Bishop John Wester of Salt Lake City after +Wester concluded his meetings at the USCCB plenary. Pray for those who are fasting and, if you can, pay them a visit to show your solidarity. Here is a video about the fast.
