EWTN included the Litany in their daily Mass today, and they’ll be covering a Mass for it with Archbishop Lori, 7 PM tonight in Baltimore. Here’s their roundup site. They’ve got a lot of stuff planned for these two weeks.

Here’s the USCCB site, with tons of info and prayers. It seems to be a bit overrun at the moment, so be patient.

Here’s the Archdiocese of Cincinnati page about it.

The entire world and all Creation is symbolically represented by the period of a week. Two weeks of prayer is a powerful preparation for all the trouble we’re probably going to get from today’s secularism gone bad. Let’s pray hard.

O God our Creator, through the power and working of Your Holy Spirit, You call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the light and saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society.

We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. Give us the strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened.
Give us courage in making our voices heard on behalf of the rights of Your Church, and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.

Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all Your sons and daughters gathered in Your Church, in this decisive hour in the history of our nation;
for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us.  So that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome,  this great land will always be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
