Byzantine Catholic Pro-Life Activism–Akathist Hymn to the Mother of God
October 26, 2013 @ 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM| Your Time & Your Life
Since the 40 Days for Life fall campaign is currently underway, we will pray the Akathist Hymn to the Mother of God outside of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic on Professional Drive in Ann Arbor.
For centuries, Eastern Christians, both Orthodox and Eastern Catholic, have prayed the Akathist Hymn to ask the intercession and protection of the Mother of God. Therefore, it is the perfect prayer to use for the purpose of asking for the Blessed Virgin’s assistance in defeating the culture of death.
If you’ve never prayed the Akathist Hymn before, don’t worry. Most of us had never prayed it before when we prayed it back in August, and it went beautifully. For more information on the Akathist Hymn, take a look at this video, courtesy of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1aTQe869rg
