Novena for Religious Freedom

With threats to religious liberty around the world, I have decided to dedicate this novena for religious freedom.

‎”The saints have always been the source and origin of renewal in the most difficult moments in the Church’s history.” – Bl. Pope John Paul II

This novena was written to be a prayer to all Saints and particularly to Martyrs.

So, when you sign up to pray, you will see a litany of Saints that come from the suggestions of people in the PrayMoreNovenas prayer community.

We will begin praying on Ash Wednesday.

I think it will be a good kick-off to Lent!

Novena for Religious Freedom Prayers

Oh great cloud of witnesses! Oh host of Angels and Saints worshiping God for all eternity! Oh holy ones in heaven above, Pray for us!

You who were once part of the Church on earth, you who were faithful servants of the Church Militant, you who suffered for the love of God, Pray for us!

In all ages, the Church is persecuted and hated. We pray, oh Lord, through your holy Saints, that we may be blessed with the freedom to worship and adore you at all times! We pray that you may bless your Church throughout the world and me personally with your grace to persevere with love in the face of persecution just as You did on the Cross.
