NINE-MONTH NOVENA TO OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE

NINE-MONTH NOVENA TO OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE
Start March 12 to December 12

One Nation Under God

 We Are Facing Our Lepanto

Thursday, October 7, marks the 450th anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto and the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. That battle, 450 years ago, witnessed the "underdog" Christian alliance claim victory because they stood their ground as an "Under God" united force.

Christianity had become "weak and divided." The Ottoman Turks felt this was the perfect time to storm in and "deal the last blow." Facing this make or break moment, Pope Pius V discerned it was time to "unite and pray." Under the command of Don John of Austria, the remnant armies were gathered into one Holy Alliance nicknamed the "Holy League." Pope Pius V then got the word out to as much of the world as he could to ask for "prayer support," especially to petition the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary through the recitation of the Rosary.

Although greatly outnumbered, the Holy League famously defeated the Ottomans at the Battle of Lepanto in 1571. Pope Pius V attributed the victory to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and instituted the feast of Our Lady of Victory (later named, "Our Lady of the Rosary"). Fr, Steve Grunow went as far to say, "This victory would severely curtail attempts by the Ottoman Empire to control the Mediterranean, causing a seismic shift in international relations from East to West. In some respects, and I do not want this claim to be overstated, the world that we know came into being with this victory."

Today, a seismic shift, for the good or for the bad, is in the offing, or what is called a "watershed moment." A watershed moment is a turning point, the exact moment that changes the direction of a situation. We are now facing a historically powerful radical secular tyranny - media, Hollywood, Big Tech, government, universities, etc. - that has joined forces and is now aggressively advancing to seize absolute power and control; to "deal the last blow." Why? Because, as it was 450 years ago, Christianity is "weak and divided."
 
Quo Vadis, America? (Where are You Going, America?)
Archbishop Fulton Sheen, in this monumental video below, identifies this new type of "tyranny by violence" that is sweeping across our country. Sheen says this is manifested as "elitism." According to Sheen, "there is a dominant minority that makes a lot of noise, and that uses 'violence' to FORCE IT'S WILL UPON OTHERS!" It is also identified as "mysticism." This is a "political mysticism." A political mysticism starts with the belief that there is no God, and then demands, "It's my will or nothing!" This is the "dogma" of this new radical secular religion, and they will bully you into compliance. The third characteristic of this violent tyranny is "Satanism." Sheen states, "Order and harmony come from God, so the essence of Satanism is the destruction of that order. The destruction of the order of law, the order of morality, the order of religion, the order of ethics ... anything that you please."

Sheen concludes by appealing to all of us in his raised voice, "Our nation is too full of those that are crying Down. Down with the universities. Down with schools. Down with the churches. Down with teachers. Down with government. Down with the police. Can you build anything down? You cannot! Certainly it is time in our nation to change our words! Let's begin now to use the word UP. Up from all of this filth! Up from this violence! Up from this indifference of courts. Up, up to the battlements of eternity. Up, Up, to God!" Please watch this short historical video! (below)
 
Supernatural Heroes Unite in Prayer to Liberate America
Here we are on the anniversary of our nation's own liberation: 4th of July or Independence Day. We celebrate being liberated from oppressive tyrannical forces. So that, now, we boldly proclaim that this is the "land of the free and the home of the brave."

However, justifiably, so many worry that we are facing a new great oppression of violent tyrannical forces. We are, as Sheen warns, being oppressed by satanic forces, seen and unseen. And so, we must deploy the very best tactics used by exorcists for those who are under satanic oppression.

God is calling YOU to step up as His "Supernatural Hero" to expel demons and liberate America! Exorcists will, first, identify the demonic spirits and then pray certain exorcism prayers to seek this liberation. Once liberation has occurred, exorcists will guide and form those once oppressed in how to seek protection and blessing from that day forward. This is the approach we are taking to stand up and seek liberation from our country's satanic tyrannical oppressors. Our battle cry is the same of every hero willing to fight for our freedom ...

I'M GOING IN!

 
July 7 - August 15 - Let Freedom Ring: A 40-Day Tactical Training for Freedom from the Devil

This is the "exorcism" part of our three month long prayer campaign. This July 7 marks the one-year anniversary when nearly 77,000 special forces prayer warriors "UNITED" as the "United States Grace Force," to pray together for this liberation from demonic forces in our culture. Since then, this tactical training has been made available in book form, and is seeing really nice reviews. We prayed together again as 77,000 during this past Lent. People can make their own assessment, but we witnessed the violence in our streets begin to abate during our first prayer campaign in 2020. Then, this year, we witnessed a weakening, along with many missteps, from the radical secular tyranny looking to seize power and control. Exorcists rarely see liberation in their first attempts. They remain relentless, until liberation occurs. Let's be relentless too.

Enlist in the United States Grace Force to receive all of the daily "Let Freedom Ring" prayers and reflections in your email. Enlist HERE.

You can also order the "Let Freedom Ring" book HERE. (Considering ordering some books for family & friends)

An explanation of "Let Freedom Ring" can be found HERE.

 
August 15 - October 7 - Novena for Our Nation: 54 Day Basic Training in Holiness

This is the "protection & blessing" part of our three month long prayer campaign. This August 15 marks the five-year anniversary when, now, 77,000 special forces prayer warriors "UNITED" as the "United States Grace Force," to seek the intercession and protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary, especially for our nation, with the extremely powerful 54 Day Rosary Novena. We first prayed this in the lead up to the 2016 election, and rejoiced that the radical secular tyranny did not gain power at that time. We have also witnessed countless supernatural miracles through this unbelievably powerful novena.

Enlist in the United States Grace Force to receive all of the daily "Novena for Our Nation" prayers and reflections in your email. Enlist HERE.

You can order the "54 Day Basic Training in Holiness" book for this novena HERE.

October 10 - Rosary Coast to Coast

Beyond the Holy Alliance we will have formed through our three month prayer campaign (July 7 - October 7), everything will culminate in a "final battle" on Sunday, October 10 in what we call "Rosary Coast to Coast."
  • The 2021 Rosary Coast to Coast will take place on Sunday, October 10. Start organizing Rosary rallies and register them at https://rosarycoasttocoast.com/. Once again the rallies are encouraged to be in public places: along coasts and borders, at state capitols, in parks, on beaches, along busy streets as well as outside Churches and Shrines.
  • Rosary Coast to Coast will be anchored by the 5th annual National Rosary Rally in front of the US Capitol in Washington DC. Plan to join together across the country in praying the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary simultaneously at:  4 pm Eastern, 3 pm Central, 2 pm Mountain, 1 pm Pacific, noon Alaska, 10 am Hawaii.
 
Battle Hymn of the Republic

I'll close with one the "original" verses of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic," published in 1862:
I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel:
"As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal";
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel,
Since God is marching on.
(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

  Auxilium Christianorum - Praying for Persecuted Priests Monday, May 24 is the Feast of Mary Mother of the Church. It is also the Feast of  Mary Help of Christians  (Auxilium Christianorum). Please consider joining this Auxilium Christianorum family to pray daily for our holy and courageous persecuted priests. The Church teaches us that it is divided into the  Church Triumphant  (which includes the members of the Church in heaven), the  Church Suffering  (this includes the members of the Church in purgatory), and the  Church Militant  (this refers to those members of the Church who are alive in this world). Because we are part of the Church Militant, we are in a spiritual warfare and this spiritual warfare requires that we recognize, as Saint Paul teaches us "For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places." ( Ephesians 6:12 ) The me

 Monday Night at the Movies Luis Bunuel, Simon of the Desert, 1965 SAINT MOTHER THEODORE GUERIN   Hebrews, Chapter 12, Verse 21 Indeed, so FEARFUL was the spectacle that Moses said, “I am terrified and trembling.”   Moses was the heir apparent to the throne of Egypt in his youth. As a member of the Egyptian court, he would have seen many fearful spectacles yet imagine what it must have been like to have been a witness of God descending on Mount Sinai to give the law. He was terrified and trembling. Again, now imagine if Moses was somehow resurrected and was able to walk into an ordinary catholic church that has a very modest Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Do you think his reaction would be any different than the first time he encountered the living God?  Be Still and Know that I am God [1]   On the evening of October 1995, John Paul II was scheduled to greet the seminarians at Saint Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore. It had been a very full day that began with a Mass at Oriole Park in Camden Y

 Switch of Manliness Legacy OUR LADY OF CZESTOCHOWA   Acts, Chapter 10, verse 1-4 1 Now in Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion of the Cohort called the Italica, 2 devout and God-fearing along with his whole household, who used to give alms generously to the Jewish people and pray to God constantly. 3 One afternoon about three o’clock, he saw plainly in a vision an angel of God come into him and say to him, “Cornelius.” 4 He looked intently at him and seized with FEAR , said, “What is it, sir?” He said to him, “Your prayers and almsgiving have ascended as a memorial offering before God.   Cornelius’ Cohort was an auxiliary unit of archers, men who are expert at hitting a mark or target.   Sin is the act of violating God's will. Sin can also be viewed as anything that violates the ideal relationship between an individual and God, or as any diversion from the ideal order for human living. To sin has been defined as "to miss the mark" to have a harden

    30 Days of Women and Herbs – Frauendreissiger Mugwort   (Artemisia vulgaris) 2 Maccabees, Chapter 15, Verse 8 He urged his men not to  fear  the attack of the Gentiles, but mindful of the help they had received in the past from Heaven, to expect now the victory that would be given them by the Almighty.   As an old, retired military man it was common for us to say while we were loading our magazines with bullets, “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition." We knew that without faith it is impossible to please God, for whoever would approach him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. Optimists see steppingstones where pessimists see stumbling blocks.   Heavenly Intercession [1] "Stretching out his right hand, Jeremiah presented a gold sword to Judas.

Judith, Chapter 10, Verse 16 When you stand before him, have no fear in your heart; give him the report you have given us, and he will treat you well.” Judith prepares for war with prayer and by the enhancement of her beauty. She is so strikingly beautiful that in this verse one of the guards of the Assyrian camp advises her to be confident in the presence of Holofernes. Beauty and the Beast [1] After bathing (during a drought) she uses all the human arts available to her to make herself beautiful and captivating: perfumed ointment, hair, clothing and jewelry. She understands the goodness of her body. She knows physical beauty is good and comes from God. She also knows that the power of her beauty comes from within her, from her holiness, from her faithfulness to God. Since both her exterior and interior beauty come from God, her beauty must be devoted to the service of God. God intends to use her beauty as a weapon to liberate the people. She will wield the weapon t

Is "The Warning" Imminent?

Friday, March 18, 2016 Feast of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Jeremiah, Chapter 26, verse 19 Did Hezekiah, king of Judah, and all Judah condemn him to death? Did he not fear the LORD and entreat the favor of the LORD, so that the LORD had a change of heart regarding the evil he had spoken against them? We, however, are about to do great evil against ourselves.” Have you ever been around people who cannot handle the truth! Speaking the truth got Jeremiah in dire straits. Unmoving, the temple officials and elders trashed Jeremiah nonetheless they were too afraid to kill him. Dire Straits [1] · At the beginning of Jehoiakim's reign, God tells Jeremiah to stand in the court of the temple and speak to all the people and cities of Judah. They're getting another chance to repent. Maybe they'll actually listen this time. · If the people don't finally come to their senses, God's going to do the same thing to Jerusalem that he did to Shiloh up north: it'll be devastated, but the priests and prophets don't want

  February 8 Thursday after Sexagesima- Carnival Saint Bakhita- Marriage Week   Psalm 119, Verse 46 I will speak openly of your testimonies without FEAR even before kings.   Professing Christians! Are we ready to bear our testimony for Jesus, against the sneer and ridicule of the ungodly? We are not likely to "be brought before kings and rulers for the Son of Man's sake." Yet no less do we need Divine help and strong faith in withstanding the enmity of a prejudiced relative or scornful neighbor. Young people! You are perhaps in especial danger of being ashamed of your Bible, your religion, your Savior. You may be brought under the snare of the "fear of man," and be tempted to compromise your religion, and to sacrifice your everlasting all from a dread of "the reproach of Christ." But remember him, who for your sake "before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession"; and shall the dread of a name restrain you from sharing h
