The nation-wide prayer campaign – Novena for Our Nation & Our Church – begins on August 15th, the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and will end on October 7th, the Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. For more detailed information, go HERE.
We will have two main intentions: 1) to pray for the restoration of the faith in the United States, 2) and to pray for the universal Church as the Amazon Synod approaches (synod begins on October 6, just as we conclude our novena). Also, bring your own personal intentions to this mighty prayer campaign, as we will all be praying for each other’s intentions (we have witnessed countless miracles by way of this powerful 54-Day Rosary Novena!).
We ask our Patron Saint of the United States Grace Force, St. Maximilian Kolbe, to pray for us!
First, we have added a short 1-2 minute reflection for “Basic Training in Holiness.” So, participants are not only praying for our nation, but receiving a quality 54 day basic training for becoming the saints we are called to be.
Second, you will pray a rosary, each day for 54 days, in one of two ways (Modern or Traditional) …
You could just add the intention “For Our Nation” or “For Faith and Freedom for Our Nation” to your daily rosary, and simply continue praying the “Rosary Proper” for each day of the week. This would be a way for you to add the Luminous Mysteries. See HERE.
What is the 54 Day Rosary Novena? See HERE.
Many (including myself) believe there is a special power in praying the 54 Day Rosary Novena in the way it was originally designed. Since it was designed prior to St. Pope John Paul II’s addition of the “optional” Luminous Mysteries, they would not be prayed while using the traditional version.
Here is the traditional schedule for the 54 Day Rosary Novena, set to our dates:
