Join in the worldwide 9-day bread and water fast, October 25 – November 2, 2010
The Community of Caritas does several 9-day fasts a year. This is in response to Our Lady of Medjugorje’s call to fasting and penance. In 2001, A Friend of Medjugorje and the Community extended one of the fasts to people all over the world to join. Several thousand people all over the world joined in the 9-day bread and water fast. Every year since then, annually the 9-day fast is extended to all the followers of Medjugorje, and of Our Lady.
Join the Caritas Community in Their Annual 9-Day Bread and Water Fasting Novena – Oct. 25-Nov. 2, 2010
For the 9-day fasting novena, you will be assigned a single day of 2011 in which your fast will be offered to bind satan from his activity for the Nation and the World. You can call Caritas of Birmingham to receive the day your fast will sponsor. Again, you fast 9 days on bread and water, and your 9-day fast covers one day of 2011, to bind satan. Your day is assigned in the order you call us.
You may call 205-672-2000 to be given the day of 2011 that your 9-day fasting novena, beginning October 25, 2010, and finishing November 2, 2010, will cover. It is important you receive a day so that we can be sure all 365 days of 2011 will be covered by an individual with a 9-day fast. Again the 9-day fasting novena is October 25-November 2, 2010, and your assigned day for 2011 is not a fast day, rather the day that you are assigned in 2011 to be covered in prayer by your October 25–November 2, 2010, 9-day fast.
This year, the dates that worked out, were from the 25th of October to the 2nd of November, which are both days Our Lady gives messages in Medjugorje. The 25th is the day Our Lady gives a message for the world through visionary Marija, and the 2nd, which is a day designated by Our Lady in Medjugorje as a day of prayer for nonbelievers, is the day Our Lady also gives a message through visionary Mirjana. So, this year’s novena is extra special, in light of the fact that we begin the 9-day fast with a fresh message of Our Lady, and end the 9-day fast with another fresh message from Our Lady. Again, you may call 205-672-2000 to be given the day of 2011 that your 9-day fasting novena, beginning October 25, 2010, and finishing November 2, 2010, will cover.
