54 Day Rosary Novena for 2012 Election

UPDATE: It was pointed out to me that this 54 Day Rosary Novena may be related to the Our Lady of America.  Please see my response in the com-box.  

My regrets that I have not been blogging much of late.  News stories are easier to pass on in Twitter and Facebook with a single click.  Oftentimes these things speak for themselves. 

I just got the message below in an email (pardon formatting problems)

54-Day Rosary Novena

To Our Lady, The Immaculate Conception, Patroness of our Country

for the Election of November 6, 2012

Beginning September 13 (Our Lady of Fatima) ending November 5 the day before the election

The most powerful novena is the 54-Day Rosary Novena, a series of six consecutive nine-day novenas.

Pray 3 nine day rosary novenas - 27 days of petition; Pray 3 nine day rosary novenas - 27 days of thanksgiving.

The first three novenas are offered for the intention of a pro-life president, senate and congress while the last three are offered in thanksgiving to God in anticipation of granting the favor.

During your rosaries, please pray for the conversion and sanctification of the United States of America.

You may also offer these intentions at daily Mass, making it a 54-day Eucharistic Rosary Novena.


Join at Any Time

If you're reading this after the novena has started, feel free to "begin at any time" and finish with us.


"...It is about the ideals our nation was founded upon: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. You cant do much better than the First Amendment to the Constitution. The founding fathers got it right. ....We are fighting to correct that wrong, in order to make sure that religious freedom continues for the generations to come after us." - His Eminence Timothy Cardinal DolanArchbishop of New York


If we wish America to be blessed again by Almighty God,

let us give The Immaculate Conception a chance to perform a first class miracle through her son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.


The holiness and the favors already granted should impregnate our supplications with unquenchable confidence.

It is certainly permissible to pray the 54-Day Rosary Novena for our daily needs,

but let us not be afraid to implore real miracles from this 54-Day Rosary Novena.

Let us invoke The Immaculate Conception, Patroness of our Country who will be able to display the prodigious power of Her intercession!


                            Our Lady, The Immaculate Conception - pray for us

                            Our Lady of Guadalupe - pray for us

                            Our Lady of Good Help - pray for us

                            Our Lady of America - pray for us

Is it wise to promote Our Lady of America if the apparition is unapproved and the visionary has disobeyed the Church?

Thanks for pointing out that this may be connected to Our Lady of America. Then Archbishop Burke had issued his private opinion on the matter, that the local bishop had given it some level of approval. I understand the messages have not been approved and that a 54 day Rosary novena may have originated from devotions based on those messages.

That said, the priest who sent the email to me likely is unaware, as was I, that a 54 day Rosary novena for the 2012 election was somehow connected to any alleged apparitions - approved or unapproved.

So, neither I, nor the priest who sent this to me are promoting, "Our Lady of America" by having encouraged people to pray a Rosary as such.

If you hadn't mentioned it's connection with Our Lady of America, I never would have known.

I will add a note to the body of the message for people to read my explanation here. All that is suggested is people pray a Rosary ahead of the election and that is something that, to my mind should begin now and continue well after.

A 54-day Novena of Rosaries for the election sounds to me highly advisable, apart from any Our Lady of America issues.

My sentiments. Moreover, I would not wait for September. This can really begin now. Those not praying a daily Rosary ought to try getting one in each day. It takes all of 17-20 minutes. Perhaps it means getting up 20 minutes earlier to get it in consistently, even if that means giving up some evening TV or internet to do so.

It isn't connected, though. It's just a few prayers at the end of the e-mail. Still, I think devotional and dogmatic Marian titles could substitute for the apparition. That being said, I want to address a doctrinal error related to this novena:

"'Of all prayers, the Rosary is the most beautiful and the richest in grace; of all, it is the one which is most pleasing to Mary, the Virgin Most Holy. Therefore, love the Rosary and recite it every day with devotion.' Saint Pius X"

This quote is found in a 54-Day Rosary booklet. It is a fabrication. It is also contrary to the Church's teachings: the Church teaches that the Rosary is very good but not the greatest prayer, and she teaches that no one is obligated to recite the Rosary everyday except when it's part of one's vocation, like in a Rosary confraternity.

Hi all! FYI Our Lady is called the patroness of the USA under the title of "The Immaculate Conception" and the patroness of the Americas under the title "Our Lady of Guadalupe" and the 54 day novena has it's roots in what Our Lady told to Fortuna Agrelli in 1884, "Whoever desires to obtain favors from me should make three novenas(now four) of the prayers of the Rosary, and three(four) novenas in Thanksgiving. Hope this helps!

Our lady of America is a true devotion to Our Lady, The Mother of God.

It can be correctly referenced to the proper Web Site at

OurLadyofAmerica.com -

operated by the only official and recognized Our Lady of America Center located at 700 N. Susan Drive – P.O. Box 445 Fostoria, Ohio.

All others are impostors and are false representatives of Our Lady of America.

Web Sites such as:




It must also be noted that the statue shown here on these false Web Sites is false and satanic.

The True image of Our Lady of America can be seen at:

Tragically, the devotion has been hijacked and corrupted by a motley crew of cutthroat gangsters who have stolen not only the true statue of Our Lady of America from Sister Joseph Therese CIT, a professed religious, but her good reputation as well, using her own image against her on their evil web sites as only satan would, and then trying to pawn off their false miracles as some kind of evidence of the authenticity of their false apostolates; nothing more than wicked designs against Sister Joseph Therese and the True Devotion to Our Lady of America.

Because of all of this, and the devilish events that were transpiring shortly before these posts were made on this blog, it became necessary in order for Sister Therese to protect the integrity of the messages and the True Devotion to Our Lady of America to issue to following letter in March of 2009:


… which can be found on the true Our Lady of America Web Site under the” About Us” Tab and then clicking on “protecting the message” and scrolling down to the bottom of the page.

The Last Will and Testament of Sister Mildred Mary Neuzil, the visionary of Our Lady of America and professed religious of Sister with Sister Joseph Therese – and close friend of course can be seen at:


… which can be found on the true Our Lady of America Web Site under the” About Us” Tab and then clicking on “Last Will and Testament"

Finally, anyone who wishes to read all of the intricate details of what has transpired over the last several years against the True Devotion to Our Lady of America and the trials and hardships and lawsuits brought against Sister Joseph Therese and the Our Lady of America Center can go to:



This January 14, 2013 will be a big day for Our Lady of America !!!

The DELIBERATE PERJURY of those who have attacked Sister Therese, which the before mentioned blogger is prepared to PROVE TO A FEDERAL JURY AT TRIAL, PRESENTLY SCHEDULED FOR JANUARY 14, 2013 AT THE FEDERAL COURTHOUSE IN INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA can be read in detail on his blog as well as everything that had happened in subsequent blog posts dating back to 11/14/2008.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to set the record straight and to Defend the True Mary and our precious Sister Therese who has suffered so much at the hands of unjust men for Our Lady and Our Lord Jesus Christ.
