Political action alone will not return America to a Culture of Life.
We need intercession of Our Lady.
And we to pray now more than any other moment in my lifetime.
Cardinal Raymond Burke agrees:
“There is no doubt that our beloved nation is in one of the worst crises which it has ever experienced, a profound moral crisis which generates division on all levels and results in an ever-greater more pervasive violence and killing. For Roman Catholics, who have always been known for their faith-filled patriotism, the first response to this crisis is fervent prayer and, in particular, prayer through the intercession of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, Mary Immaculate who is also the patroness of our nation.”
Cardinal Burke endorsed a great initiative called the Novena for our Nation
, a 54-day rosary prayer campaign which starts today on the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary, and culminates with a rally in the nation’s capital on the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary on October 7.
You don’t have to attend the rally in Washington DC to join the 54-day prayer novena. Simply pray the rosary (or at least a decade) every day for our nation.
Thousands of members of CatholicVote have already joined together to pray for the leaders of our country. You can join us at www.rosaryforamerica.org.
