Start Novena to the Annunciation today! March 17, 2016

arely made it in time!  Posted almost at midnight!


This is an ununusual year in that Easter and the Inc. nation of Christ fall on the same day.  I know some folks are doing some special Novenas focused on praying Rosaries to avail of the graces available on this great dual feast.  Noting Christ’s Incarnation and death together certainly have some powerful pro-life implications.  This Novena can be really mighty against abortion and the whole culture of death.


The Novena, which I found beautiful,  is below,  courtesy EWTN:

I greet you, Ever-blessed Virgin, Mother of God, Throne of Grace, miracle of Almighty Power! I greet you, Sanctuary of the Most Holy Trinity and Queen of the Universe, Mother of Mercy and refuge of sinners!

Most loving Mother, attracted by your beauty and sweetness, and by your tender compassion, I confidently turn to you, miserable as I am, and beg of you to obtain for me from your dear Son the favor I request in this novena:

(mention your request).

Obtain for me also, Queen of heaven, the most lively contrition for my many sins and the grace to imitate closely those virtues which you practiced so faithfully, especially humility, purity and obedience. Above all, I beg you to be my Mother and Protectress, to receive me into the number of your devoted children, and to guide me from your high throne of glory.

Do not reject my petitions, Mother of Mercy! Have pity on me, and do not abandon me during life or at the moment of my death. Amen.


I am so thankful for all your prayers! I believe I was much stronger and better today for them!  I haven’t interviewed in a long time so I was a bit rusty but I think it went pretty well.  I should know by early next week whether they like me, they really really like me, or not.

With apologies to Sally Field.

Have a bblessed day/night and PRAY MORE NOVENAS!

More tomorrow hopefully,  God willing,  perhaps.  Please pray for my friend JC who was badly injured today.  Thank you again.  Best readers in Catholic blogdom.

Actually the novena should start on March 26 (my son’s 20th birthday! Boy where did those 2 decades go?) since the Annunciation is moved to April 4 due to March 25 being Good Friday (historically the actual date of both). Have a blessed Holy Week and Eastertide!

Thanks for the novena and the update…. Prayers continue …. Tim, those decades roll by faster and faster 😏

That Sally Field line is a classic…. Reminds me though of our then future son-in-law who was so nervous to ask us for our daughter’s hand (isn’t that a quaint old tradition) – anyway, after deciding not to do it when her dad and all the brothers were out bird hunting with him (“what if they all say NO – and then decide to get rid of me for good???”) he cornered me in the kitchen, flashed a 1.25 carat diamond ring at me and said “I really really really like your daughter!!!” What a kid… I got three grandkids from those two so far 😀
