THE NINE-DAY NOVENA — Nov. 25–Dec. 3
OUR LADY’S DESIRE IS TO “CONQUER” THE WORLD. She has plainly stated that She wishes to bring about a “Kingdom.” Hearing these words “Kingdom” and “conquer” brings to mind warfare. It is exactly that, except Our Lady intends the means for fighting and conquering is “LOVE.” Love is to be our only instrument. The battle is over the conversion of ourselves, our nation, and the world. We are to break away from everything which does not elevate God and hinders our living a holy life. Once we begin this path, we will easily see that the struggles within ourselves and around us are no less than a real battle toward good. The only path to true victory is learning to love, because only love is capable of dealing with a society gone so far astray.
Many think change will come about just through prayer. It will not because prayer without love amounts to useless words. Unless we are willing to radically change our lives an eternity of prayer will do nothing. Yet as one four year old told his dad,
“Dad, one ‘Glory Be’ changes the whole world.”
Indeed one prayer said with love, with our lives changed, prayed from the heart, alters the whole world by bringing more grace into the world. This increases good which decreases evil, thereby, altering the whole world.
The meaning for the following novena is for love to prevail and conquer and to respond to Our Lady in helping to bring it about. We pray December will be a big step for Our Lady in accomplishing Her plans through us.
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.
