Mandeville, LA – This note appears from the founder of the Veritas Radio Network & owner of this site, Mike Church and does not represent the views of all contractors, volunteers and hosts at mikechurch.com or on the Veritas Radio Network and The CRUSADE Channel.
A few friends have asked me for the text of my Novena for The Veritas Radio Network’s Crusade Channel so they can join this 9 day prayer which begins today, Thursday 1 June, 2017. Here it is, if you’d like to say it, I thank you for joining us. I make no claim of being a theologian or prelate so forgive any error of omission, lack of Charity or fit of Pride. I am saying this at the start of a Holy Rosary as its intention (preferably the 2nd Rosary of the day) and concluding the Rosary with a final Memorare and appeal to The Blessed Virgin for her intercession.
“O’ Blessed St Joseph and St Pope Pius X, simple men who became simple servants of God by carrying out their vocations with humility and Charity, not for their benefit but for the benefit of others. With a humble heart, I ask for you to please intercede for us on behalf of the Veritas Radio Network and the CRUSADE Channel that our simple vocation may be made pleasing to God and that he might Bless us with the financial resources needed to continue our work; for an increase in the labor needed to continue; and for an increase in listeners that is measurable. Please, beloved Saints Pope Pius X and St. Joseph, bring our petitions to Almighty G-d the Father in the name of his Son, Jesus for he will not refuse you this favor. Please, Saint Pope Pius X and St. Joseph, with humility I beg you to not refuse me this favor. Amen. Pater Noster (Our Father) Ave Maria (Hail Mary) Gloria (Glory Be)”
The Memoraré of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux
MEMORARE, O piissima Virgo Maria, non esse auditum a saeculo, quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia, tua implorantem auxilia, tua petentem suffragia, esse derelictum. Ego tali animatus confidentia, ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro, ad te venio, coram te gemens peccator assisto. Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere; sed audi propitia et exaudi. Amen.
REMEMBER, 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.
