Our Current Novenas

September 2019



Our Blessed Mother and St. Michael


Dear Friend,

Have there been days when you felt your highest hopes were suddenly dashed? When you just could not see how you would go on?

In today’s difficult times, I’m sure you have faced your share of troubles and concerns. Our world is torn by conflict, financial uncertainties, and a kind of despair many of us have not seen.

I don’t think a single family has escaped the ugly effects of society’s disorder, nor the many constant, sinful temptations that confront each of us daily.

“You indeed have sorrow now,” Our Lord predicted. Yet, through it all, Christ assures us: “Have faith, I have overcome the world.” That’s why I would like to remind you to cast all your care on Him for He will have care of you, and of all your needs!

To help you do so, I have arranged a very special Novena of Masses for you in honor of Our Blessed Mother. I will ask Our Lady to call upon her Son, Jesus, to hear your needs and petitions.

The Novena of Petition will begin on September 29 and end October 7, the feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary. A second Novena of Thanksgiving will be offered from October 7 to October 15.

I have also arranged two additional Novena of Masses on your behalf in honor of St. Michael, our protector and guardian. Throughout history, St. Michael has been called upon in times of emergency or whenever great evil threatens us. Remember to speak his name should you ever feel in danger!

The Novena of Petition will be said – October 2-10 and a second Novena of Thanksgiving
will be offered October 11-19.

Kindly send your personal petitions and intentions to me now to be included in the Novenas of Masses. My brother friars and I will include you and your urgent need in our daily prayers. 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.

Thank you, again, and may God bless you and keep you always!

With prayerful gratitude,


Fr. Robert, O.F.M.
