The Reconciling of Ourselves, Our Families, and
Our Nation Back to God
This is the 16th year of novenas being prayed for our nation's healing. One novena is prayed, once
each month, for 7 months. That's 108 novenas. June 25, 2008 begins the 109th novena...
It is very important to begin this novena on June 25.
THE NINE-DAY NOVENA — June 25–July 3
THERE IS A GRAVENESS AND SERIOUSNESS to what is started today with tens of thousands beginning this novena.
satan, during this time, with all of his might, utilizing all his forces, wishes to sow horror and bring about
hopelessness. When people become hopeless, they see no need to pray because they have no hope for change. satan’s tactic
of exposing horror after horror about society constantly blaring at us on the news, radios, newspapers, etc. is actually increasing
and promoting more of the same. It leaves one without hope of a solution. The more man becomes hopeless, the greater will
be the distance from God he experiences. Just before World War II, in Europe, man became hopeless. His problems were real
but exaggerated and put constantly in front of him. Hitler came in knowing exactly what to say, inspired by evil, feeding
man who craved it. The hopelessness of man during that time was the rubble by which satan and his angels were able to defeat
God’s angels. Man turned to man with hopelessness instead of to God with hope. “Hope” is one of the necessary
ingredients for the good angels to be victorious. We should realize good angels need fertile ground on which they can defeat
demon angels. Where there is no hope, no faith, no charity/love, there will be no victories. Where there is faith, hope, and
charity/love, there you will see the angels of God victorious.
The stage is now being set by satan to sow horror after horror with intentions to create hopelessness in man’s
heart about his personal problems, as well as society’s and the world’s. God sends us a light to shine, Hope itself,
“Mary,” to counter satan’s plan to destroy all of mankind. We, Her children, now realize, had She not come,
man would have self destructed. Man would not convert on his own and the result would be the death of the world. The Woman
of Revelations reveals that the world had to be placed in intensive care because it is apparent that it can no longer survive
on its own.

It did not, so God intervenes with emergency measures to resuscitate a world which, on its own, will no longer
live. Jesus, the Holy Physician, sends His best to intensively nurse back a lifeless world. Every prayer, every act, every
response is so important and is a sign of life. As She intensively works on the world, She shows how grateful She is by repeatedly
saying: “Thank you for responding…;” “I call you…;” “I am so grateful to
you…;” “…to the world;” “…respond;” “…convert.”
Just as the vital signs of a body must respond to a doctor’s care to live, so, too, must we to all Our Lady requests.
If we do, the spiritual diseases of which we now suffer will heal. Hope, Faith, Charity/Love are the three vital signs for
our soul and body which must respond and must be strengthened, increasing daily in us, thereby our family, nation, and the
world will be healed. This first novena is for Hope and the next one will be for Faith. Love will be the sixth novena, but
all three are the foundation upon which the world will be saved. As you pray the novena of Hope, these thoughts are to be
kept in your heart throughout your day.
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.
