On November 6th, 2012, the United States of America will face one of the most crucial elections in her 236 year history. The outcome will profoundly shape our future. Either we will become a more secular, more atheistic and more socialist state with more government control, or we will become a more democratic state. With respect for individual freedoms and a reassertion of our nation’s Motto: “In God We Trust!” this struggle is not simply political in nature; at its deepest dimension, it is profoundly spiritual. Blessed Pope John Paul II said back in 1976 that the Roman Catholic Church is engaged in the greatest spiritual struggle of her 2000 year history. What is at stake is the entire Christian culture built up in the World for the past two Millennia.
That culture rests primarily on three important Catholic (and human) values: the sanctity of human life, the sanctity of Marriage between one Man and one Woman, and the God-given right to freedom of religion. We Must pray that those elected will support these values. since it is a spiritual battle, I propose the following:
(1) Beginning on October 7th , the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, say the rosary faithfully each day
till the election.
Our Mother revealed herself during the apparition of the “Miracle of the Sun” on October 13th as “Our Lady of the Rosary.” October 7th was originally called “Our Lady of Victories,” established to thank Our Lady for obtaining a great victory for the christian fleet over a Militarily superior foe at the Battle of Lepanto on October 7th, 1571. As that fierce battle raged, the pope at the time, St. Pius V, had the people of Rome continuously offer the rosary for a victory that saved the Catholic faith in Europe.
(2) On Saturday, November 3rd, the First Saturday of the Month and only 4 Days before the election,
we are asking that you arrange for a Holy Mass to be offered through your Waf cell in your local parish church or chapel. if possible, the intention of the Mass should be “For God and Country.” (this Must be done With the necessary approval of your pastor or religious superior.) What blessings and spiritual power would flow from these many Masses! Where a special Mass is not possible, then just attend the regular Mass in your parish or another parish, and make your intention be “For God and Country!”
(3) You could then conclude with the regular Five First Saturday Devotion prayers: confession (Which now you can make any day of the Month ), receive holy communion, pray a rosary and then keep our Lady Company for 15 Minutes meditating on some of the other Mysteries of the rosary. All these should be done with the intention of offering reparation for offences against our Lady’s Immaculate Heart!
If you will be arranging a Mass in your Diocese for this event on November 3rd, please keep us informed by contacting the national coordinator, Deacon Ellis, at: firstname.lastname@example.org so We can advertise it on our Website.
For God and Country
