Novena For Our Nation 2019
A Battle for the Soul of Our Nation & the Catholic Church
August 15 to Oct. 7, 2019
The Novena will begin 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.
We will have two intentions: to pray for the restoration of the faith in the United States, and to pray for the universal Church as the Amazon Synod approaches.
In the United States, we continue to live in peace-less times with laws and court rulings in conflict with God’s laws; especially the disregard for the rights of the unborn, elderly and weak in our society and the attacks on marriage and family values.
Society and many levels of government continue to demonstrate intolerance towards biblically-based religious belief and practice. In conflict with First Amendment constitutional rights, persecution of traditional religious expression has reached historically high levels.
With the upcoming Amazon Synod – starting on October 6th – the institutional Church is facing into a crisis of gigantic proportions.
Among many stark warnings as to the heterodox nature of the working document of the Synod, two senior Cardinals have expressed the strongest possible critique, calling it both “heretical” and “apostate.”
One theologian ominously opined that the Amazon Synod is an attempt to “create another church” by “demolishing” the true Church from within.
Whether it’s our country or our Church, this is a spiritual battle of historic proportions!
We now need to implore graces from Almighty God, to lead the Pope and the Bishops of the Synod to follow sound doctrine and tradition, and firmly reject modernist interpretations of the priesthood, religion, and inculturation.

PRAYER AND TRAINING!
This prayer campaign is also a Basic Training in Holiness. Each day, along with praying your rosary, holiness trainees will be provided with a 1-2 minute reflection on the qualities of excellence. The first 27 days, trainees will read from passages in scripture, quotes from saints and the catechism on one of the following: Theological Virtues, Cardinal Virtues, Gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the Fruits of the Holy Spirit. The second 27 days will be excerpts from the book entitled, Church Militant Field Manual: Special Forces Training for the Life in Christ.
The daily reflections for this prayer and training campaign can be found in multiple places.
1) If you would like a hard copy to carry with you, it is available in book form that is entitled, 54 Day Basic Training in Holiness.
