Let us pray for your needs and intentions – you and members of your family, both living and deceased, will be remembered in the Novenas celebrated for your intentions and in the masses offered each day for you.
In today’s difficult times we face many troubles and problems. All around us the world is torn by illnesses like the coronavirus, war, strife, and contention. Even in our own families the ugly effects of disorder and sin confront us.
“You indeed have sorrow now,” Our Lord predicted. In our anxieties and disappointments …when our highest hopes are dashed, when we cannot see how we can go on … we must turn again to God in confidence and trust.
In today’s turmoil Christ assures us, “Have faith, I have overcome the world.” So cast all your cares on Him for He will take care of you, and of all your needs.
I have arranged two very special Novenas of Masses in honor of our Blessed Mother. Please send your requests so that we may ask Our Lady to call upon her Son, Jesus, for your special intentions and anxieties. We’ll pray for you in:
… a Novena of Masses in honor of our Lady, Virgin, most Powerful and Queen of Peace, from September 29 to October 7, to beg her aid with her divine Son.
… a Novena of Masses to Our Lady in thanksgiving, beginning on October 7 and ending October 15.
Please join us in asking Our Lady for the favors you need, and to secure for us the graces we and our world need. Please also remember our missionaries among your intentions and if you are able, include an offering of any amount to assist their work here in the United States and in our missions in Central America.
In these times of trouble, I pray you draw close to the promises of God, knowing He has, indeed, overcome the world.
With every blessing,
Fr. Robert, O.F.M.
P.S. I have also arranged two additional Novenas of Masses in honor of St. Michael, protector of the Church, and patron of policemen, mariners, and radiologists. They will take place next month from October 2 to 10, in petition, and from October 11 to 19, in thanksgiving.
