2020 Novena (Sorry I'm late again this year)
« on: February 05, 2020, 09:13:53 PM »
Dear fellow members,
Our Novena to Our Lady of Lourdes was supposed to begin on Feb. 2 and end on the  10 of Feb.  Eve of the feast of Our Lady (Feb. 11); then the Novena of thanksgiving from the 11 to the 19th.
So again, better late than never.

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

In case somebody wants to join in, here is the prayer we are supposed to recite:
Quote
O ever Immaculate Virgin, Mother of Mercy, Health of the Sick, Refuge of Sinners, Comfort to the Afflicted, you know my wants, my troubles, my sufferings. Deign to cast upon me a look of mercy. By appearing in the Grotto of Lourdes, you were pleased to make it  a privileged sanctuary, whence you dispense your favors; and already many sufferers have obtained the cure of their infirmities, both spiritual and corporal. I come, therefore, with the most unbounded confidence to implore your maternal intercession. Obtain,  O loving Mother, the granting of my requests. Through gratitude for favors, I will endeavor to imitate your virtues that I may one day share your glory.
Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us. Amen.

Bumping this! 

Thanks Michael!  I'm sorry that I missed announcing this as well!
