Isn't it amazing that we are past halfway now? Wow. It goes so quickly sometimes!

And I know God is making such marvelous things happen!

I know two wonderful things already - two women (couples!) that we have been continually praying for to conceive are now both expecting babies. God is so good!

Today we reach the midpoint in our Novena! emoticon

Now let us offer thanks for what God has done, and what He is going to do!
May our Blessed Mother use our prayers, and the merits thereof, to God's glory, and in reparation for the offences of the whole world.
May the Divine Assistance be always with us, and God's Divine Mercy flow upon the whole world!
How blessed we are to have the gift of the Rosary, and good Spark friends to pray with!
Peace be with you!
God's will be done!

God is so amazing! I wake every morning and thank Him for another day of life! He spared me for whatever His plan for me is. Each day I find something I think is from Him or for Him and believe it is why. This Novena means so much to me, especially this round. Thank you for having this challenge.

That is wonderful news! "Old Slewfoot". emoticon An acquaintance of mine refers to the devil as "Old Smelly Socks".

But you're right - he may "up the ante" now.

After yesterday's RCIA, I have tangible proof the prayers of our Rosaries CAN be answered, according to God's will and timing...
After the class, Brother John came up to DH, and they talked about what the point was of RCIA, why it takes so long, and why it will be worth it for DH to stay in the class until the end. DH says he will stick it out!!! emoticon HAPPY DANCE emoticon
Most importantly... PRAISED BE JESUS!
I know the real battle is going to begin now! Old Slewfoot does not like losing hold of a soul so easily... DH has professed with his mouth he is going to continue. God is greater than any obstacle that can be put in the pathway for DH, or myself for that matter.
The power of the Holy Spirit is released with each Rosary we say! We help spread the effects of the grace of God's Love every time we pray, and we enlarge the Kingdom when we ask for His will to be done.
emoticon to everyone who prays the Rosary! Our God reigns!

It amazes me sometimes how God works. I remember with my brother (who professes no faith - openly anyway; I don't know the state of his heart) that I felt so responsible, as if I had to be the one to convince him about God, etc. One day, his young daughter at the time asked him why her cousins went to church, and they didn't. She also asked all these other questions to which he had no answers for her. He asked me, he asked my mother (practising Anglican), and he went to a series put on by a wonderful Catholic priest. I had no idea he was going to that series, until I saw him there one evening. God works in such strange and wonderful ways!

You are right, CJ. DH has had no religious upbringing, and he was "saved" in a Church of God, married in the Methodist , and baptized Baptist. He has no sense of commitment to attending church on a regular basis, even though I have been a faithful attendee regardless where I went. He will learn. The devil doesn't want to let him go, but God WILL win!
He is still open, as we talked about it more today. I am praying for protection for him. The real battle for his soul is being waged in the spiritual realm, I am sure.
God's timing is perfect, and I shall persevere in prayer no matter what the outer circumstances show.

I am so grateful that your husband was open to talking about it.

It sounds like he doesn't have a lot of background in attending worship services? I know many Christian churches say things before or after readings from the Bible. Also, there are many rituals in all faith traditions. I guess that was not part of his upbringing?

Praise God! I have seen fruit from our prayers! DH and I talked a bit about his being bored at RCIA, and how that he needs to stay in it, so that he will gain undersanding. He just doesn't get the WHY of being Catholic and all of the traditions we have, i.e. making the sign of the cross, what he calls the "chanting"(saying "the Word of the Lord" after the Word is read), and all of the getting up and down. I tried to explain to him it is out of respect for God. If he will just go tomorrow, I will be grateful. One weekend at a time...

Most up-to-date intentions list so far ...

1. In Thanksgiving for our many blessings;

2. For the pro-life cause and the 40 Days for Life; for our leaders to realize the evil of abortion and euthanasia and make laws that protect the most vulnerable in our society, and for those who do not see the horrific sin of abortion, that their eyes will be opened, and they will develop a conscience regarding the sin;

3. For all non-believers especially: Mathew, Erin, Donny, Jennifer, Hannah, Claire, Tu Linh

For all those who have strayed from the Church, that the Holy Spirit will call them back again, especially:
Greg and his family
Portia's husband Lloyd and their sons

TOTUS TUUS

Such Joy to have placed our needs in our Mother's care!

Edited by: CATHOLICCORGI at: 12/11/2013 (20:53)
Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly!
Nothing tastes as good as living with less pain feels!

emoticon Prayers for the 31st Rosary Novena emoticon


Welcome to the 31st 54 Day Novena!

We hope you will join us as we lift our Prayers of Petition and Thanksgiving from October 20, 2013 through December 12, 2013.

Feel free to copy the following Prayers to help you as you pray your Novena.

PRAYERS FOR THE 54 DAY NOVENA

The prayers that we say at the beginning and end of the rosary:

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

First 27 Days of the 54-Day Rosary Novena, October 20, 2013 - November 15, 2013 (Novena of Petition)

Our dearest Mother Mary, behold us, your children at Catholic Critters of Sparkpeople, in prayer at your feet. Accept this Holy Rosary, which we offer you in accordance with your requests at Fatima, as proof of our tender love for you, for the intentions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in atonement for the offenses committed against your Immaculate Heart, and for these special favours which we earnestly request in our Rosary Novena (Mention our intentions):

Second 27 Days of 54-Day Rosary Novena, November 16, 2013 - December 12, 2013 (Novena of Thanksgiving):

Dear Jesus, through the intercession of our Blessed Mother, the Virgin Mary, Queen of the Most Holy rosary, enter our hearts as we meditate on the mysteries of your life in thanksgiving for the granting of Catholic Critters' prayer requests, some of which has been answered, some of which are still awaiting your plan... (mention our intentions)


Blessed Mother, we beg you to present our petitions (prayers of thanksgiving) to your Divine Son. If you will pray for us, we cannot be refused. We know, dearest Mother, that you want us to seek God's Holy Will concerning our requests. If what we ask for should not be granted, pray that we may receive that which will be of greater benefit to our soul.

We offer you this spiritual bouquet of Roses because we love you. We put all our confidence in you, since your prayers before God are most powerful. For the greater glory of God and for the sake of Jesus, your loving Son, hear and grant our prayers. Sweet Heart of Mary, be our salvation.

Here we pray the mystery of the day:
Day 01 = 31 May = Joyful Mystery
Day 02 = 01 June = Luminous Mystery
Day 03 = 02 June = Sorrowful Mystery
Day 04 = 03 June = Glorious Mystery
...repeat the sequence J-L-S-G...

After the Rosary:

Hail Holy Queen...

Let us pray,
O God, whose only Begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation. Grant, we beseech thee, that meditating upon the mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise through the same Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

The MEMORARE
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, we fly unto thee O Virgin of virgins, our mother, to thee we come, before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us at Catholic Critters. Amen.


The Magnificat (The Divine Office)
My soul glorifies the Lord,
My spirit rejoices in God, my Saviour.
He looks forth on His servant in her lowliness;
Henceforth, all ages will call me blessed.
The Almighty works marvels for me.
Holy His Name!
His mercy is from age to age,
On those who fear Him.
He puts forth His arm in strength
And scatters the proud-hearted.
He casts the mighty from their thrones and raises the lowly.
He fills the starving with good things, sends the rich away empty.
He protects Israel, His servant,
Remembering His mercy,
The mercy promised to our fathers,
To Abraham and his descendants for ever.

+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.



We can also add the Litany of The Blessed Virgin Mary, if we wish.

I usually make my first "post" in this thread my template to help me keep focused on where I am in the Novena. I then just edit the post as I need to update it. You are welcome to copy my post and adapt it to your needs, if you like.

If you have any questions, please contact myself or CJBAGGINS. We will be happy to help!

Please join us on October 20, 2013 as we begin another 54-Day Rosary Novena. The 20th is a Sunday, and the Novena will take us all the way to the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12.

This thread will be for posting our "progress" as we pray.

For those who are not familiar with 54-Day Rosary Novenas, please see the thread "All About 54-Day Rosary Novenas".

Basically, a 54-Day Rosary Novena involves saying a rosary daily for the intentions we compile for 54 days in a row. We begin, no matter what day of the week we start the novena, with the Joyful Mysteries, then the Luminous, then Sorrowful, then Glorious, then Joyful again, over and over til the end.

Will you join us?
