Bishops Ask For Prayer

The US Bishops have asked us to pray a novena for the upcoming elections. Sounds like an excellent idea.

Pray for justice, peace, and life with the Novena for Faithful Citizenship. Download the Podcast and join Catholics throughout the United States in prayer, beginning Tuesday, September 2, nine weeks before the election.

Options for praying the Novena for Faithful Citizenship:

  • Start on September 2 and pray for nine consecutive Tuesdays, up until the general election.
  • Start the Novena on any day of the week, whenever people gather, and pray on that day every week.
  • Begin praying the Novena on October 26, nine days before the election, and continue each consecutive day.
  • Create any combination that works for you and your community—and feel free to pray the Novena more than once (1 Thes 5:17).
