THE NINE-DAY NOVENA — June 25 – July 3

Hope

THERE IS A GRAVENESS AND SERIOUSNESS to what is started today with tens of thousands beginning this novena.

satan, during this time, with all of his might, utilizing all his forces, wishes to sow horror and bring about hopelessness. When people become hopeless, they see no need to pray because they have no hope for change. satan’s tactic of exposing horror after horror about society constantly blaring at us on the news, radios, newspapers, etc. is actually increasing and promoting more of the same. It leaves one without hope of a solution. The more man becomes hopeless, the greater will be the distance from God he experiences. Just before World War II, in Europe, man became hopeless. His problems were real but exaggerated and put constantly in front of him. Hitler came in knowing exactly what to say, inspired by evil, feeding man who craved it. The hopelessness of man during that time was the rubble by which satan and his angels were able to defeat God’s angels. Man turned to man with hopelessness instead of to God with hope. “Hope” is one of the necessary ingredients for the good angels to be victorious. We should realize good angels need fertile ground on which they can defeat demon angels. Where there is no hope, no faith, no charity/love, there will be no victories. Where there is faith, hope, and charity/love, there you will see the angels of God victorious.
 

The stage is now being set by satan to sow horror after horror with intentions to create hopelessness in man’s heart about his personal problems, as well as society’s and the world’s. God sends us a light to shine, Hope itself, “Mary,” to counter satan’s plan to destroy all of mankind. We, Her children, now realize, had She not come, man would have self destructed. Man would not convert on his own and the result would be the death of the world. The Woman of Revelations reveals that the world had to be placed in intensive care because it is apparent that it can no longer survive on its own.
 

June 1, 1983


“…I hoped the world would begin to be converted on its own….”

 

It did not, so God intervenes with emergency measures to resuscitate a world which, on its own, will no longer live. Jesus, the Holy Physician, sends His best to intensively nurse back a lifeless world. Every prayer, every act, every response is so important and is a sign of life. As She intensively works on the world, She shows how grateful She is by repeatedly saying: “Thank you for responding…;” “I call you…;” “I am so grateful to you…;” “…to the world;” “…respond;” “…convert.” Just as the vital signs of a body must respond to a doctor’s care to live, so, too, must we to all Our Lady requests. If we do, the spiritual diseases of which we now suffer will heal. Hope, Faith, Charity/Love are the three vital signs for our soul and body which must respond and must be strengthened, increasing daily in us, thereby our family, nation, and the world will be healed. This first novena is for Hope and the next one will be for Faith. Love will be the sixth novena, but all three are the foundation upon which the world will be saved. As you pray the novena of Hope, these thoughts are to be kept in your heart throughout your day.
 

TO BE SAID DAILY:

Intentions

Mary, we give you this novena for your intentions for December 8-12, for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, for massive conversions, for trhe fulfillment of all your plans, and the initiation of new plans to reconcile ourselves, our families, and our nation back to God.


TO BE SAID DAILY:

 

Prayer to Heal Our Land


LORD, WHO ARE WE AS A PEOPLE, having been given blessings in portions as no other nation before us? What has become of us, Father? We have spoiled your spacious skies with buildings and cities breathing with sin. The amber waves of grain are no longer viewed as our blessing but as our due. The awe and reverence due You when we gaze upon the purple mountains and their majesty is no longer held; rather, how much pleasure they can give us. Father, we have spurned You. We’ve blamed our problems on those who promote darkness, but You gave us time with Your Mother. Now our eyes have been opened by Her. Our lack of holiness, our not being light has allowed darkness to prevail. Indeed, our sins which we wrongly view as small have allowed those in darkness to commit great sins without shame. We now realize it’s because of our failings as Christians. Father, Samuel told your people, “It is true you have committed all this evil, still you must not turn from the Lord, but worship Him with your whole heart. For the sake of His own great name, the Lord will not abandon his own people.” Father, we come before You with our whole hearts and ask You to grant Our Lady Her intentions.

Mary, we do not deserve to even be heard, yet we know Your Son’s passion merits that we are. Mary, we call You as You have called us. Please, intercede before God to forgive us, to heal us, to heal our families, and to heal our nation.

Father, grant Mary’s intentions and hear Her pleas for us. We know you are justly irritated with us but we beg and plead for forgiveness through our repentance from our hearts. We realize our nation is headed toward disaster by so many signs You have given us. Holy, Holy, Holy God, grant Mary Her requests that we may again be your people, not a nation above God but one nation humbled and under God. Amen.
 

TO BE SAID DAILY: THE MARCH 18, 1994 MESSAGE


“Dear children! Today my heart is filled with happiness. I would like for you to find yourselves in prayer every day, as today, this great day of prayer. Only thus, can you proceed towards true happiness and true fulfillment of body and soul. As Mother, I want to help you in this. Allow me to do so. I am telling you again to open your hearts to Me and allow Me to lead you. My way leads to God. I invite you that we may proceed together because you see for yourselves, that with our prayers, all evils are destroyed. Let us pray and hope.”

 

Day 1, Thursday, June 25

Day 2, Friday, June  26 - A world without hope


“Dear children, this time also I am inviting you to prayer. Pray that you might be able to comprehend what God desires to tell you through my presence and through the messages I am giving you. I desire to draw you ever closer to Jesus and to His wounded heart that you might be able to comprehend the immeasurable love which gave itself for each one of you. Therefore, dear children, pray that from your heart would flow a fountain of love to every person both to the one who hates you and to the one who despises you. That way you will be able through Jesus’ love to overcome all the misery in this world of sorrows, which is without hope for those who do not know Jesus. I am with you and I love you with the immeasurable love of Jesus. Thank you for all your sacrifices and prayers. Pray so I might be able to help you still more. Your prayers are necessary to me. Thank you for having responded to my call.” November 25, 1991

 

Day 3, Saturday, June 27 - Light is hope


“Dear children, in your life you have all experienced light and darkness. God grants to every person to recognize good and evil.

Thank you for having responded to my call.” March 14, 1985
 

Day 4, Sunday, June 28
 

“Dear children, today I am calling on you to decide whether or not you wish to live the messages which I am giving you. I wish you to be active in living and spreading the messages. Especially, dear children, I wish that you all be the reflection of Jesus, which will enlighten this unfaithful world walking in darkness. I wish all of you to be the light for everyone and that you give witness in the light. Dear children, you are not called to the darkness, but you are called to the light. Therefore, live the light with your own life. Thank you for having responded to my call.” June 5, 1986

 

Day 5, Monday, June 29


“Dear children, today I call you to prayer. By means of prayer, little children, you will obtain joy and peace. Through prayer you are richer in the mercy of God. Therefore, little children, let prayer be the light for each one of you. Especially, I call you to pray so that all those who are far from God may be converted. Then our hearts shall be richer because God will rule in the hearts of all men. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray. Let prayer begin to rule in the whole world. Thank you for your response to my call!” August 25, 1989

 

Day 6, Tuesday, June 30


“Dear children, I want you to understand that I am your Mother, that I want to help you and call you to prayer. Only by prayer can you understand and accept my messages and practice them in your life. Read Sacred Scripture, live it, and pray to understand the signs of the time. This is a special time. Therefore, I am with you to draw you close to My Heart and the Heart of My Son, Jesus. Dear little children, I want you to be children of the light and not of the darkness. Therefore, live what I am telling you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” August 25, 1993

 

Day 7, Wednesday, July 1
 

“Dear children, your Mother asks you to pray as much as you can during these two days. Prepare yourselves in prayer for the feast to come. Dear children, I would like to tell you to bring peace to others during these days. Encourage others to change. You cannot, dear children, give peace if you, yourselves, are not at inner peace. Tonight I give you peace. Give peace to others! Dear children, be a light that shines. I ask you pray the Glorious Mysteries when you go back to your homes tonight. Pray them in front of the Crucifix.” August 12, 1988

 

Day 8, Thursday, July 2


“Dear children! I hoped that the world would begin to be converted on its own. Do now everything you can so that the world can be converted.” June 1, 1983

 

Day 9, Friday, July 3


“Dear children, today I invite you in a special way to pray for the plans of God to be fulfilled: first of all with you, then with this parish which God Himself has chosen. Dear children, to be chosen by God is really something great, but it is also a responsibility for you to pray more, for you, the chosen ones, to encourage others so you can be a light for people in darkness.

“Children, darkness reigns over the whole world. People are attracted by many things and they forget about the more important.

“Light won’t reign in the world until people accept Jesus, until they live His words, which is the Word of the Gospel…” July 30, 1987
