9-day Fast Begins Today – Nov.1

9-day Fast Begins Today – Nov.1

November 1: Today begins the worldwide Medjugorje fast, which continues to swell in numbers and nations…

November 1, 2011 A.D.

This year the 9-day bread and water fast (November 1-9) continues spreading across the world for Our Lady’s intentions, giving Her a bountiful gift to present to God. Among some of the countries represented in this fast are:

Sri Lanka
United Arab Emirates
New Guinea
United States


An 87 year-old woman who just recovered from a heart attack is joining us, as well as 12 and 14 year-olds joining their parents in this fast. There are couples and friends and many others doing this fast for the first time, all feeling called in a special way to give this fast to Our Lady because they see the times we are living in.

The Community of Caritas does several 9-day fasts throughout the year. In 2001, A Friend of Medjugorje opened up this fast for others to join us in praying for atonement and purification. The prevailing message that A Friend of Medjugorje feels strongly that all should be meditating on these days is Our Lady of Medjugorje’s April 2, 2008 message:

“…Is your heart open for me? Do you permit me to purify and prepare it for my Son?”

Throughout the days of this fast these thoughts should be in our hearts. For the Fasting Novena prayers please click to visit here.
