I typically have kept this blog free from politics, feeling that that particular topic was better left to others. But today I feel compelled to ask you to join with me in praying a Rosary novena for our country.
As we come closer and closer to the election, it looks more and more like a battle between good and evil, though I know some would argue that the side I see as “good” is “evil”, and vice versa.
Today, September 29, is the Feast of the Archangels. In particular, it is the Feast of Saint Michael, Archangel. It was Michael who led the angels in the battle between good and evil in heaven, successfully expelling Lucifer and his malevolent companions and casting them into hell.
October 7th is the Feast of the Holy Rosary, which celebrates the Christian’s miraculous victory in major sea battle in 1571, after Pope Pius V asked all Christians to pray the Rosary for victory.
How fitting, then, to start a Rosary novena today, the Feast of the Archangels, which would wrap up on October 7, the Feast of the Holy Rosary, praying for victory in the battle to save our country.
Please consider praying this novena with me. That good, Godly men and women will be elected to office, that they will seek and follow God’s will in all their dealings and decisions, and that the United States will remain a beacon of hope, freedom, and prosperity for many generations to come.
St. Michael, pray for us.
Our Lady of Peace and Hope, pray for us.
