I have completed my rosary novena of petition (my novena of thanksgiving begins tomorrow). I am on Day 2 of a three-day fast. I have prayed to the Holy Spirit for wisdom and asked for the intercessions of the Blessed Virgin Mary and all the angels and saints that God's Grace be conferred upon the State of Minnesota and the United States of America. I have researched all the candidates and issues.
I now set out with clear eyes and a full heart.
May almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us our sins, and lead us to everlasting life.
Mary Immaculate, patroness of the United States, pray for us.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of all the Americas, pray for us.
St. Thomas More, patron of religious liberty, pray for us.
St. Jude, my patron, pray for us.
