Most Reverend David M. O'Connell, C.M.

On Nov. 3, Day Nine of the Novena for the United States of America, Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., asks the faithful to pray: For those who govern our country and for those who are running for elected office that they might serve with a commitment to life, respect, compassion, liberty and justice for all.

 

NOVENA PRAYER FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

(recited each day):

God our Father, giver of life, we entrust the United States of America to your loving care. You are the rock on which this nation was founded. You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Reclaim this land for your glory and dwell among your people.

Send your Spirit to touch the hearts of our nation’s leaders and citizens. Open our minds to the great worth of human life and the responsibilities that accompany respecting and protecting human life and religious liberty. Help us to bring an end to racial injustice, violence and all the evils that divide us.  Remind your people that true happiness is rooted in seeking and doing your will.  Make us instruments of your peace!

Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, patroness of our land, grant us the courage to reject the “culture of death” and lead us always to respect life in all its stages and circumstance. We ask this through Christ Our Lord.  Amen.  (Source: adapted from www.catholicdigest.com)

 

(Here mention intention: For, etc.)

 

THEN, RECITE AN OUR FATHER, HAIL MARY AND GLORY BE EACH DAY FOR OUR NATION.
