Catholics across Ohio are praying a 54-Day Rosary Novena from Sept. 15–Nov. 7.
We're asking for the protection of human life and the defeat of Issue 1 on the Ohio ballot this November.
The novena is a rosary each day, but with a twist to the typical mystery schedule, and a few added prayers throughout.
As men committed to their faith, we seek tangible reminders of our devotion. Grab a Rosary shirt.
Praying the 54 Day Novena
- Hail Mary
- Opening Prayer
Hail, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, my Mother Mary, hail!
At thy feet I humbly kneel to offer thee a Crown of Roses, snow white buds to remind thee of thy joys, each bud recalling to thee a holy mystery, each 10 bound together with my petition for a particular grace.
O Holy Queen, dispenser of God’s graces, and Mother of all who invoke thee, thou canst not look upon my gift and fail to see its binding.
Part 2 (Sept. 15–Oct. 11, first 27 days)
As thou receivest my gift, so wilt thou receive my petition; from thy bounty thou wilt give me the favor I so earnestly and trustingly seek. I despair of nothing that I ask of thee. Show thyself my Mother!
Part 2 (Oct. 12–Nov. 7, last 27 days)
As thou receivest my gift, so wilt thou receive my thanksgiving; from thy bounty thou hast given me the favor I so earnestly and trustingly sought. I despaired not of what I asked of thee, and thou hast truly shown thyself my Mother!
