Rosary Across America

On February 11th, Feast Day of Our Lady of Lourdes, Relevant Radio started a 54 Day Novena so that justice and wisdom will prevail regarding the following intentions:  
HHS mandate, 
true freedom of religion, 
for the protection of freedom of conscience, and 
for an end to abortion.

They are calling for all Catholics to pray the rosary each day for these prayer intentions.  You can do it with them at 7:30am in the morning or in the evening during their 8pm and 10:30pm broadcasts.  Or you can pray the rosary at your convenience for this special intention.  This 54 Day Novena will continue until Wednesday, April 4th of Holy Week.

Here is a statement from Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan of New York:

"Never before has the federal government forced individuals and organizations to go out into the marketplace and buy a product that violates their conscience.  This shouldn't happen in a land where free exercise of religion ranks first in the Bill of Rights."

For more information, please visit Relevant Radio.  Let us unite in prayer so our voices are heard.

Mark 9:29  And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.”
