Novena for Our Lady of America
Thank you for your ongoing prayers to and for Our Lady of America. This includes the prayers for Pope Francis and the United States Bishops to embrace and to advance the devotion (beginning with the solemn procession of the statue of Our Lady of America into the National Shrine of The Immaculate Conception at Washington, D.C.).
Because so many persons pray the Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel (from July 8th to July 14th), we have waited until today to propose another Novena for Our Lady of America. This novena begins on Friday, July 18th and continues through Saturday, July 26th, the Feast of Saints Anne & Joachim, the Parents of Immaculate Mother, Mary, and the Grandparents of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
During these nine (9) days, please consider praying five decades of The Most Holy Rosary in a visit to The Most Blessed Sacrament or wherever you can. We ask that you pray for the following intentions and conclude your prayers with the Hail, Holy Queen and with the aspiration: "By Your Holy and Immaculate Conception, Oh Mary, deliver us from evil!"
* That the United States Catholic Bishops will soon plan, organize and carry out the solemn procession of the Our Lady of America statue into the National Shrine of The Immaculate Conception at Washington, D.C., making a definite commitment to advance this Marian devotion to Our Lady of America.
* That The Holy Trinity through the intercession of Our Lady of America, The Immaculate Virgin Mary, will grant that, and we now ask that, special (miraculous, if necessary) signs be given and shown to Pope Francis and other Catholic bishops so as to enhance the valid findings of authenticity by Archbishop Paul Francis Leibold of this devotion [as described by Sister Mary Ephrem (Mildred Neuzil), C.PP.S.] such that the United States Catholic Bishops, and both The Holy See and Pope Francis, embrace and endorse Our Lady of America as a private revelation given with supernaturality.
* That any actions or efforts by enemies of the Catholic Church (including the freemasons), especially those against The Holy See at The Vatican and those against persons committed to the devotion to Our Lady of America, be defeated, nullified and suppressed through adoration of The Most Precious Blood of Jesus and more widespread prayer of The Rosary
* For the office of the Successor of Saint Peter, Bishop of Rome and Supreme Pontiff, that this charism and munera, this gift to The Church, be and shall remain robust, steadfast and Supreme, until the end of time when The Lord Jesus returns in glory
Some may wish to pray the USCCB Novena Prayer:
We have suggested that one may wish this June, daily for these intentions, to pray The Rosary and make a daily Visit to The Blessed Sacrament for at least 15 minutes.
