Who can doubt that our country is in serious trouble and straining at the seams? From COVID-19 to riots, from political animosity to overturned and degraded values. Religious freedom is in danger. Churches have been desecrated and statues vandalized.
We need help. And the only help that will be effective at this time is heavenly help.
One of the ways Catholics can gather in a united voice to plead for heavenly help is to join EWTN’s “Novena to the Mother of God for the Nation” that begins Tuesday, Sept. 29.
“As Catholics, we turn instinctively to our Blessed Mother in times of need,” said EWTN Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer Michael Warsaw. “America’s first bishop, John Carroll of Baltimore, chose Our Lady as the patroness of the United States. And throughout our country’s history, we have always entrusted our nation to Mary’s motherly protection.”
