This is Your Grand Opportunity:
Fast for The End of the Reign of satan
Caritas’ Nine-Day Bread and Water Fast
Thursday, October 5–Friday October 13, 2017 A.D.
The Community of Caritas’ Annual Nine-day Bread and Water fast is approaching. We are putting out a strong call for as many as possible to join us in this fast that will give Our Lady added sacrifices and prayers to go before God to break satan’s hold over our nation. If ever there was a year to join in this fast, this is the year, the 100th anniversary of Fatima and the beginning of the end of the reign of satan. Even if we do not see dramatic changes immediately, things will begin to be set into motion that will lead to dramatic events in the future. A Friend of Medjugorje repeated to the community concerning the fast what he’s been saying for months:
“We fast for the purification of ourselves, our families and our nation as the 100 years of the reign of satan comes to an end at the anniversary of Fatima October 13, 2017.”
Our fast, joined with the Indulgences received in this 100th year of Fatima, make us the most presentable we are capable of being before God, and through Our Lady’s intercession, give us the possibility of receiving from Him what we have been ardently seeking for years: the return of our nation back to Her Son. Join with us to give Our Lady this collaborative fast to help Her be able to shape the future according to Her desires and plans.
This fasting novena includes a prayer below for your intentions and the intentions of the Community and mission of Caritas. The fast covers each day of 2018. Please spread this information to your family and friends, so that each day of 2018 will be covered several times over. One should do everything to fast on bread and water for the nine days to make it powerful. If you absolutely, honestly, cannot fast on bread and water for the nine days for legitimate reasons, please join us in making sacrifices during this time, praying extra Rosaries, offering your Holy Communions, increasing your prayers, and uniting other penances to give to Our Lady with our fasting. Though this fast takes place every year, this year’s fast is a once in a century, a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate in something concrete, for the future of the world. For those wanting to take part in this once in a lifetime fast on bread and water, please click to visit here to sign up, or call in the U.S., 205-672-2000, between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Central Time USA, Monday through Friday. After hours leave a message on ext. 315 with your name and phone number and state that you are calling about joining the nine-day fast. We will call you back to tell you the day of 2018 that your nine-day fast will cover. If you are unable to commit to all nine days, or if you are not able to fast only on bread and water, your sacrifices are important to us and will add to the grace we are seeking for our nation through this nine-day fast, but, as we want to be assured that every day of next year is covered by at least one nine-day bread and water fast, we can only assign days for those fully participating in the nine-day fast. Thank you and God bless!
RECITE EACH DAY OF THE NINE-DAY BREAD AND WATER FASTTHURSDAY OCTOBER 5–FRIDAY OCTOBER 13, 2017 PRAYER FOR THE FASTING NOVENA
O Queen of Heaven, we unite ourselves with others across the land in a holy fast, reminiscent of the so many times ancient Israel cried out in repentance to their God. By their history, we know God the Most High will hear our cry. We humble ourselves because of our sins. Seek, Mary our Queen, on our behalf, that the Lord not look upon our sins, but the love we show Him through this fast. Persuade Him to not only forgive but also forget and blot out our sins, that through Your hands we will grow close to Him and know Him intimately as a Father, as our Protector.
O Mary, these days of fasting we wish to empty our hearts of everything useless. Cleanse us. Let this fast purify us and atone for everything that has defiled us. O Mary, Queen of Peace, let our hearts be refilled through Your hands with whatever graces are necessary to reconcile us, our families, and our nation back to God. We wish also to atone for any wrongs in advance for each day of the coming year 2018, so that all be consecrated to Your Immaculate Heart, to purify the body of believers in order for the rebirth and the ushering in of a new springtime for Christianity in our beloved nation.
We seek the healing of our hearts of all spiritual disease and illness and for You to fill our hearts especially during December 8th–12th. Please, please, dear Mother, please grant us these requests, and grant the three special intentions of the Community of Caritas as well as my own personal intentions of (name your personal intentions). We pray especially for the end of the reign of satan on October 13, 2017, and for Our Lady’s triumph over all the evil agendas assailing our nation. I especially offer _____________, 2018 (day assigned by Caritas of Birmingham), that on that day the plans of satan against ourselves, our family, and nation will be thwarted and grace will abound for conversion across our land.
We consecrate our hearts to You, Mary, and to Jesus. We want to give You and Jesus “title” of not only our souls, but also our bodies, as well as all we possess. We know Your words of January 1, 2001, when You revealed that satan was completely unchained, were followed with what our response should be. It was to give ourselves to You and Jesus completely, as a possession into Your and His hands, through the formal daily act of consecration, thereby, owned by You and Your Son, we are afforded protection through being Your possession.
January 1, 2001
We, therefore, present to You the intention to empty our hearts that You may refill them, as well as Caritas’ intentions and our personal intentions through this nine-day fast, prayers and consecrations, in order that You will present this novena with your Son before the throne of God. We ask for an unleashing of grace to be poured out upon ourselves, our families, our nation, and upon the countless numbers who are in need of conversion throughout our land, and Your intentions for all of the above intentions. Please intercede for us as our Mother and as our Queen. Amen.
