Join us in prayer for our Nation

These resources, Novena to the Mother of God for the Nation and Catholics in the Public Square, will provide lessons that will challenge us to a deeper conversion to Christ, a more generous life of charity, and will inspire us to live as more responsible faithful citizens of our beloved nation. The proximity of the Novena to the 2022 midterm election will offer an opportunity to pray for all our government officials and seek Divine Assistance in the elections.

Our nation needs the power of prayer more than ever. In times of crisis, Catholics turn instinctively to the Mother of God to heal our wounds. Now, we can all do our part in this national effort by praying the Novena to the Mother of God for the Nation. In this powerful supplication, our voices speak as one asking Mary’s intercession to unite us as one nation under God. It reminds us of the central truths of the faith, in particular, the Incarnation, Passion, Death, and Resurrection of the Lord and Mary’s unique role in our salvation.
Election Prayer

by Servant of God, Father John Anthony Hardon, S.J.

Lord Jesus Christ, You told us to give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and to God what belongs to God. Enlighten the minds of our people in America. May we choose a President of the United States, and other government officials, according to Your Divine Will. Give our citizens the courage to choose leaders of our nation who respect the sanctity of unborn human life, the sanctity of marriage, the sanctity of marital relations, the sanctity of the family, and the sanctity of the aging. Grant us the wisdom to give You, what belongs to You, our God. If we do this, as a nation, we are confident You will give us an abundance of Your blessings through our elected leaders. Amen.

Composed by Father John Anthony Hardon, S.J.
