“When people say the Rosary together, it is far more formidable to the devil, than one said privately. Because in this public prayer, it is an army that is attacking him. He can often overcome the prayer of an individual, but if this prayer is joined to other Christians, the devil has much more trouble in getting the best of it.” -St Louis de Montfort.
On this Feast of St. Benedict, we are calling all “believing” Catholics to join in a powerful campaign of spiritual warfare, entitled, “Novena for Our Nation” (August 15 to October 7).The United States Grace Force has grown to nearly 50,000 special forces prayer warriors, and we want to get larger and stronger!!
Cardinal Burke has joined in calling us all to get in the fight …
“There is no question that we are living in the most troubled times. Fundamental truths about human life about marriage and the family and about the conscience are being called into question by threatening the lives of individuals and of our society. But we are full of courage because we know that our Lord is with us. He’s called us to be His soldiers on the ground, working with Him for the salvation of the world.
There is a 54 day Novena beginning on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary which will be completed on October 7. Your prayer would be even more efficacious if you would also take part in that 54 day Novena.”
We have witnessed a multitude of miracles since this United States Grace Force of nearly 50,000 prayer warriors began praying together in 2016 (see HERE).
As our August 15 spiritual warfare campaign approaches, we need everyone to do everything they can to recruit friends and family to join this United States Grace Force. WE WANT A HUGE “POWERED UP” GRACE FORCE!!
The Power of the Benedict Medal: There is indeed no medal that possesses such wonderful power and none so highly esteemed by the holy Church as the Medal of St. Benedict. Whosoever wears this medal with devotion, trusting to the life-giving power of the holy Cross and the merits of the holy Father St. Benedict, may expect the powerful protection of this great Patriarch in his spiritual and temporal needs. The medal is one of the oldest and most honored medals used by Catholics and due to the belief in its power against evil is also known as the “devil-chasing medal.” As early as the 11th century, it may have initially had the form of Saint Benedict’s cross, and was used by pope Leo IX. The reverse side of the medal carries the Vade retro satana (“Step back, Satan”) formula, which has been used by Catholics to ward off evil since the 15th century. Sometimes carried as part of the rosary, it is also found individually. In widespread use after its formal approval by Pope Benedict XIV in the 18th century, the medal is used by Catholics to ward off spiritual and physical dangers, especially those related to evil, poison, and temptation.
We, specifically, chose this powerful Feast of St. Benedict to launch this clarion call to join together for this epic spiritual warfare campaign. So, we are offering, for the first 2,000 requests, the following FREE items to help empower our prayer warriors and seek their help with recruitment:
