Dear Beloved,

The Presidential election of Donald Trump has caused a backlash across our Nation.  Beloved, this attack comes from the evil one, who desires to destroy our Country.  Satan has unleashed his anger because of the election results and is using the hatred and anger of people to cause them to riot and bring destruction in their own communities. These riots will continue to escalate; potentially putting our President-elect in danger.  Read what Holy Scripture says:

“For though we live in the world we are not carrying on a worldly war, for the weapons of our warfare are not worldly but have divine power to destroy strongholds.”  2 Corinthians 10:3-4

The Rosary is our weapon; the Sacraments of Holy Mass and Confession are our weapons; spending time in Adoration is our weapon.   Remember the Battle of Lepanto in 1571.  St. Pope Pius V called on all of Europe to pray the Rosary for victory.  Even though the Turks outnumbered the Christians, through the intercession of our Holy Mother and the Rosary, the Turks were defeated, saving Europe.  The Pope attributed the victory to prayer and declared October 7 a feast day- The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary- which is celebrated each year in the church.

We must keep our focus on God and faithfully pray each day for our Country.  It is in keeping with this that we would like you to join us in a 54 Day Rosary Novena, through the intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary, for the following intentions: to end the riots; to restore peace to our Nation; to remove the hatred and anger in the hearts of mankind throughout the world; to bring about healing; for protection for our President-Elect and his family; for unity.  Implore her under the title of Our Lady of the Rosary during this 54 Day Novena.

A traditional novena is 9 days. The 54 Day Rosary Novena consists of three sets of novenas for our petition and three sets of novenas in thanksgiving.   So the first 27 days are for our petition.  The last 27 days are in Thanksgiving (no matter if our petitions have been granted at this time).  The first day we pray the Joyful Mysteries; day 2 the Sorrowful, day 3 the Glorious, day 4 the Joyful, day 5 the Sorrowful and continue in the same sequence till the 54 days have been completed.   We pray the Novena as it was given in 1884; therefore the Luminous Mysteries are not said for the Novena.   We will begin on November 21, 2016, the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary and end on January 13, 2017, the Feast of Our Lady of Victory, Prague, Czech Republic.


Beloved, Our Holy Mother continues to implore us to pray, pray, pray.  Our Country and the world need our prayers, for the sake of the unborn, the children and our youth.  They are our future. We must persevere.  Please join our 54 Day Rosary Novena for America.  Please circulate this with all so that we have a victory through Our Lady of the Rosary.  It is vitally important for our Nation that we come together in prayer and sacrifice.  Our hope is in God.  God is stronger than he who is in the world.  God bless you and your families.


With love and prayers,
