June 25, 2013 marks the beginning of the 141st novena prayed for the reconciling of ourselves, our families, and our nation back to God…
June 26, 2013 A.D.
Seven novenas a year, beginning in 1993 are prayed in preparation for the five days of prayer December 8-12 at Caritas, Alabama. The seven novenas, which begin each June 25, were an inspired outgrowth of the prayers already prayed from the sacred sites of the Bedroom of Apparitions, and the Field of Apparitions at Caritas, Alabama, where Our Lady Queen of Peace appeared to Medjugorje visionary Marija. The founder of Caritas, in whose home Our Lady appeared, had prayed many prayers for the healing of the nation prior to his first trip to Medjugorje. After receiving the call of Our Lady to devote his life entirely to the living and spreading of the messages, he has called upon others to take up the task of praying for the healing of the nation. When Our Lady appeared in his home to Marija in 1988-1989, many prayers were offered for the nation, and by Our Lady’s actions of choosing to appear in the Bedroom, She was clearly showing that healing of the nation comes through the healing of the family.
Each year these novenas begin on the anniversary of the apparitions of Medjugorje, June 25, and are offered for the intentions of the reconciling of ourselves, our families and our nation back to God. The five days of prayer each December 8-12, has birthed into many movements by Heaven, for the July 1-5 apparitions that have taken place in 2008, 2009, 2012 and in just a few day’s time, 2013, for the July 4th Holy Day. June 25, 2013 marks the beginning of the 141st novena. By Providence, this novena will extend into the July 1-5 apparitions here at Caritas, an experience you will want to drop everything for and be present.* The novena prayers for June 25 – July 3 are below:
THE NINE-DAY NOVENA — June 25 – July 3
THERE IS A GRAVENESS AND SERIOUSNESS to what is started today with tens of thousands beginning this novena.
satan, during this time, with all of his might, utilizing all his forces, wishes to sow horror and bring about hopelessness. When people become hopeless, they see no need to pray because they have no hope for change. satan’s tactic of exposing horror after horror about society constantly blaring at us on the news, radios, newspapers, etc. is actually increasing and promoting more of the same. It leaves one without hope of a solution. The more man becomes hopeless, the greater will be the distance from God he experiences. Just before World War II, in Europe, man became hopeless. His problems were real but exaggerated and put constantly in front of him. Hitler came in knowing exactly what to say, inspired by evil, feeding man who craved it. The hopelessness of man during that time was the rubble by which satan and his angels were able to defeat God’s angels. Man turned to man with hopelessness instead of to God with hope. “Hope” is one of the necessary ingredients for the good angels to be victorious. We should realize good angels need fertile ground on which they can defeat demon angels. Where there is no hope, no faith, no charity/love, there will be no victories. Where there is faith, hope, and charity/love, there you will see the angels of God victorious.
The stage is now being set by satan to sow horror after horror with intentions to create hopelessness in man’s heart about his personal problems, as well as society’s and the world’s. God sends us a light to shine, Hope itself, “Mary,” to counter satan’s plan to destroy all of mankind. We, Her children, now realize, had She not come, man would have self destructed. Man would not convert on his own and the result would be the death of the world. The Woman of Revelations reveals that the world had to be placed in intensive care because it is apparent that it can no longer survive on its own.
June 1, 1983
It did not, so God intervenes with emergency measures to resuscitate a world which, on its own, will no longer live. Jesus, the Holy Physician, sends His best to intensively nurse back a lifeless world. Every prayer, every act, every response is so important and is a sign of life. As She intensively works on the world, She shows how grateful She is by repeatedly saying: “Thank you for responding…;” “I call you…;” “I am so grateful to you…;” “…to the world;” “…respond;” “…convert.” Just as the vital signs of a body must respond to a doctor’s care to live, so, too, must we to all Our Lady requests. If we do, the spiritual diseases of which we now suffer will heal. Hope, Faith, Charity/Love are the three vital signs for our soul and body which must respond and must be strengthened, increasing daily in us, thereby our family, nation, and the world will be healed. This first novena is for Hope and the next one will be for Faith. Love will be the sixth novena, but all three are the foundation upon which the world will be saved. As you pray the novena of Hope, these thoughts are to be kept in your heart throughout your day.
TO BE SAID DAILY:
Mary, we give you this novena for your intentions for December 8-12, for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, for massive conversions, for trhe fulfillment of all your plans, and the initiation of new plans to reconcile ourselves, our families, and our nation back to God.
TO BE SAID DAILY:
Prayer to Heal Our Land
LORD, WHO ARE WE AS A PEOPLE, having been given blessings in portions as no other nation before us? What has become of us, Father? We have spoiled your spacious skies with buildings and cities breathing with sin. The amber waves of grain are no longer viewed as our blessing but as our due. The awe and reverence due You when we gaze upon the purple mountains and their majesty is no longer held; rather, how much pleasure they can give us. Father, we have spurned You. We’ve blamed our problems on those who promote darkness, but You gave us time with Your Mother. Now our eyes have been opened by Her. Our lack of holiness, our not being light has allowed darkness to prevail. Indeed, our sins which we wrongly view as small have allowed those in darkness to commit great sins without shame. We now realize it’s because of our failings as Christians. Father, Samuel told your people, “It is true you have committed all this evil, still you must not turn from the Lord, but worship Him with your whole heart. For the sake of His own great name, the Lord will not abandon his own people.” Father, we come before You with our whole hearts and ask You to grant Our Lady Her intentions.
Mary, we do not deserve to even be heard, yet we know Your Son’s passion merits that we are. Mary, we call You as You have called us. Please, intercede before God to forgive us, to heal us, to heal our families, and to heal our nation.
Father, grant Mary’s intentions and hear Her pleas for us. We know you are justly irritated with us but we beg and plead for forgiveness through our repentance from our hearts. We realize our nation is headed toward disaster by so many signs You have given us. Holy, Holy, Holy God, grant Mary Her requests that we may again be your people, not a nation above God but one nation humbled and under God. Amen.
