    DAY 41 – MARY, QUEEN OF MARTYRS, PRAY FOR US GOD STRONG The U.S. Army ran a very effective “Army Strong” advertising campaign to recruit soldiers. The key message was: “There is strong, and then there is Army Strong.” The commercial goes on to say, “It is a strength like none other. It is a physical strength. It is an emotional strength. It is strength of character. It is strength of purpose. The strength to do good today, and the strength to do well tomorrow. The strength to obey, and the strength to command.

    DAY 40 – MARY, QUEEN OF APOSTLES, PRAY FOR US DIVINE CONNECTION The Gospel story Pope John Paul II sets as the foundation for his new millennium appeal is the “Call of the First Disciples” (Lk 5:1-11). This is the classic scene in which Jesus tells Peter to “Put out into deep water (duc in altum), and let down the nets for a catch.” Peter’s response is: “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” They proceed to catch the maximum amount of fish their nets can...

    DAY 38 – MARY, QUEEN OF ANGELS, PRAY FOR US LOVE DEMANDS EFFORT Throughout all of salvation history we see such cries as “Let his face shine upon you” (Nm 6:25) and “Do not hide your face from me” (Ps 27:9, 69:17, 102:3). This face-to-face, “look-me-in-the-eye” bonding is essential in understanding the necessity for making a semper fi connection with Christ. This kind of face-to-face encounter with God changes everything as it calls forth, quite literally, a transformation that cannot be undone. It marks a major shift away from a “face-in-the-crowd,” “Christian in name only,” “do-only-what’s-minimally-required” empty religiosity, into a...

    DAY 37 – MARY, HELP OF CHRISTIANS, PRAY FOR US SET THE WORLD ABLAZE The word “courage” actually derives its meaning from a Latin root word “cor” which means “heart.” It means we are never more courageous than when we “have the courage of our convictions,” that is, when we live from the heart, remaining true to who we really are. Lombardi was courageous because he simply yielded to his raison d‘ętre, his reason for existence. St. Catherine of Siena put it this way: “If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world ablaze!” Who are...

No matter what Lombardi dedicated himself to, he never abandoned his true self as a child of...

    Novena for Our Nation ^ | Sep. 18, 2016 | Fr Stephen Imbarrato
    DAY 35 – MARY, REFUGE OF SINNERS, PRAY FOR US CATCH EXCELLENCE The desire to enter the fight is a desire to enter into a genuine training in holiness, pursuing the goal of becoming one of God’s champions. St. Paul put it this way: “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a...

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem The Book of Proverbs (Proverbs 12) 12 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,     but whoever hates correction is stupid. 2 Good people obtain favor from the Lord,     but he condemns those who devise wicked schemes. 3 No one can be established through wickedness,     but the righteous cannot be uprooted. 4 A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown,     but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones. 5 The plans of the righteous are just,     but the advice of the wicked is deceitful. 6 The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood,     but the speech of...

    DAY 34 – MARY, HEALTH OF THE SICK, PRAY FOR US THIS DAY WE FIGHT Spiritually speaking, the devil is doing all that he can to catch us isolated and unarmed on the battlefield — no spiritual armor, no spiritual weapons, and no comrades in the heavenly realm to fight alongside of us. In other words, the reason evil is promoted so effectively today is because we’re ignoring God’s offer of supernatural strength and power and ignoring the mightiest of all allied forces: the Communion of Saints. C.S. Lewis wrote, “Enemy-occupied territory — that is what this world is. Christianity...

    Prayers Requested I have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and am going in for surgery tomorrow morning, so I will be out of touch with FR for a few days anyhow.

Any prayers will be welcome, in any venue of FR, but if folks PM me, I will personally thank them and let them know how it went once I am home and able to spend some...

With what kind of body will they come back?” You fool!What you sow is not brought to life unless it dies.And what you sow is not the body that is to bebut a bare kernel of wheat, perhaps, or of some other kind. So also is the resurrection of the dead.It is sown corruptible; it is raised incorruptible.It is sown dishonorable; it is raised glorious.It is sown weak; it is raised powerful.It...
