December 19th – THIRD DAY: NOVENA for Central Africa

For the women and children, for the widows and the orphans, for the helpless and the sick.

“O stock of Jesse, you stand as a signal for the nations; kings fall silent before you whom the peoples acclaim. O come to deliver us, and do not delay.”

“Women are far braver than men: one of them spoke. Selekas killed her husband last Friday, she's got 7 small kids and nothing left. This testimony made many of us cry."

“Women are far braver than men: one of them spoke. Selekas killed her husband last Friday, she’s got 7 small kids and nothing left. This testimony made many of us cry.”

COME QUICKLY, LORD. COME,O SAVIOUR!

GRANT US PEACE

ACN-20131214-03689REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen.
