Cardinal Burke calls our nation to pray the 54 day Rosary novena
This is the official endorsement of “Novena for Our Nation” by His Eminence, Cardinal Raymond Burke:
“There is no doubt that our beloved nation is in one of the worst crises which it has ever experienced, a profound moral crisis which generates division on all levels and results in an ever-greater more pervasive violence and killing. For Roman Catholics, who have always been known for their faith-filled patriotism, the first response to this crisis is fervent prayer and, in particular, prayer through the intercession of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, Mary Immaculate who is also the patroness of our nation.
One of the most powerful prayers which is ours in the Church is, in fact, the Holy Rosary. I think, for instance, of the Battle of Lepanto and the victory which was won on October 7, 1571, over the Saracens who were bent on conquering Christian Europe. Let us now turn to the powerful prayer of the Holy Rosary, asking Mary Immaculate to intercede with Our Lord to bring healing to our nation and to inspire in her citizens the holiness of life which alone can transform our nation.
I wholeheartedly endorse the Novena for Our Nation (Starting August 15) and the Rosary Rally on October 7th next, the 445th anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto. I urge as many as are able to participate in these great spiritual works for the sake of our entire nation. In a special way, as the spiritual advisor to the Holy League, I urge all members of the Holy League to give strong leadership in this great campaign of prayer for our nation.”

“This 54 Day Novena for our Nation and National Rosary Rally comes at a critical and most serious time of crisis in our country. I cannot think of a more powerful response on the part of Catholics than to pray, fast, and come together for the conversion of our nation.”

“As many of us know, the United States that we grew up in and deeply love has gone down a bad path. As citizens of this great country, we need to storm heaven in urgent prayer and seek to counteract any further damage that may occur as a result of the upcoming presidential election. I can think of no better way to do this than through praying the 54-day rosary novena for our nation. Our Lady of Victory, pray for us! Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!”

"There is such a need for us to unite in prayer, and come back to 'One Nation Under God' that Men of Christ fully supports and is truly excited to participate in the Novena for Our Nation & the National Rosary Rally. 'if then my people, upon whom my name has been pronounced, humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear them from heaven and pardon their sins and heal their land.' God said 2 Chronicles 7:14. We can make a difference, and that difference begins by uniting in prayer. Join us for this historic event."

"We are now living in a time of spiritual crisis in America and throughout our culture. This calls each of us to respond. The solution is found in the Mercy and Person of Jesus Christ. The key to His mercy is Our Lady and the Rosary where we encounter Jesus Who alone can counter the prevailing crisis and provide the hope which America and each of us yearn for. The Novena of our Nation initiative provides an opportunity to respond in a positive manner. The Rosary Evangelization Apostolate zealously endorses this effort and encourages the faithful across America to join in this effort of prayer. With and through Mary and the Rosary, Jesus Christ will prevail and win the battle for souls. We will place a smile on the face of Our Lady as we pray for America to encounter Jesus Christ through the rosary."
