Kansas City Archbishop Joseph Naumann asked Stephen D. Minnis, president of Benedictine College, Atchison, Kansas, to launch a national Memorare Army prayer campaign for religious liberty. Mother Teresa started the first Memorare Army in Calcutta, India, gathering pledges for 85,000 Memorares for her work, and we are proud to follow in her footsteps.
Members of the Memorare Army for Religious Liberty commit to saying 1,000 Memorare prayers. This can be accomplished by praying three Memorares a day for a year, for example, or by praying Memorares in groups of 10.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has asked Catholics to pray urgently for religious freedom in our country: "We are Catholics. We are Americans. We are proud to be both, grateful for the gift of faith which is ours as Christian disciples, and grateful for the gift of liberty which is ours as American citizens. To be Catholic and American should not mean having to choose one over the other."
Make your pledge to pray 1,000 Memorares in the next year at the
