As we discussed at our last meeting, I believe it is critical, in the current contentious political climate, that we all pray for our nation as we approach Election Day on November 3rd. Therefore, I ask all of you to please join me in a novena these nine days prior to election. In the attachment, you will find a daily reflection, many from our Founding Fathers, regarding religion in our society followed by the prayer that Our Lady provided as “Our Lady of All Nations.” For those of you who may not be familiar with this prayer or Our Lady’s apparition behind it, I have provided a brief background.
Let us all pray that the nation finds tranquility and peace, regardless of who wins the election. It is our duty as patriotic Catholics and Brothers to support and defend our great nation - the United States of America - One Nation Under God!
Many thanks to our Worthy Lecturer Jack O'Brien for his assistance with the novena.
