A 54-Day “Get Strong” Novena

Novena FON

Today begins a 54-Day Novena which will end on 01 Janury 2021, a feast day celebrated by the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church: The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God.

More information about Fr. Richard Heilman's “Get Strong” Novena can be found here. Special meditations and Bible readings will be offered for each day of the Novena, but the most important part will be daily recitation of 5 Decades of the Rosary.

I've done several of Fr. Heilman's 54-Day Novenas and have found each one to be an edifying and worthwhile experience. I'll be doing this one, too.

And the adventure continues.

A New Prayer Project


Given my advanced age and my health conditions, I am obliged to hold myself under strict self-quarantine until a safe and effective vaccine against the current Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Flu is available. Now if I was younger and healthier I'd be out and about and active as all younger, healthy folks should be. But since I fall within that tiny segment of the population to which the CCP Flu is particularly fatal, I choose to remain hunkered down.

That being the case, I welcome the Let Freedom Ring prayer project that begins today. I've participated in long novenas promoted by Fr. Heilman in the past and have found them to be beneficial and VERY time consuming. Since I have a lot of free time these days, I welcome this new 40-day project. It will help fill the hours of the days from now through mid-August.

And the adventure continues.
