Divine Mercy Novena (Nov. 9-17) for the Protection of the Church

In response to the growing number of battles that have risen up against the Church, within and without, we invite, and encourage you to invite, those of faith to unite with us in prayer.

As we begin November and prepare for the end of the liturgical year, may we say a novena to the Divine Mercy, which we will begin on the feast of the Dedication of St. John Lateran Basilica and continue the following nine days to end the day before the memorial of the Dedication of the Churches of Peter and Paul. May we especially remember Rome during this novena.

If you have any objection to saying the Divine Mercy novena outside of Easter week, please join us by saying the Divine Mercy chaplet for nine consecutive days. Together, we turn to Christ who, Pope Emeritus Benedict reminds us, “does not abandon His Church, even when the boat has taken on so much water as to be on the verge of capsizing.”


Please find the Divine Mercy novena here.


What else can be done during the month to help bring peace and protection to the Church? Consider praying additional prayers, rosaries, Divine Mercy chaplets, and novenas for the pope, clergy, and all those in religious life. If you haven’t completed the Five First Saturdays devotion, consider starting that devotion. And, as always, offer your suffering and sacrifices up for the conversion of sinners.
