54 Day Holy Face Novena for Our President

by Fr Richard Heilman | May 22, 2017 1:19 PM

I am convinced we are in the throes of the greatest spiritual war of all times (I wrote about it here[1]). While much of it is played out in the political theatre, it goes to the heart of everything we Christians hold near and dear to us, because it is a battle fought for Deus Vult (The will of God).

The enemy, just as it was in the Crusades, is seeking to seize ground by force and unjust tactics, while we are trying to protect this ground or even reclaim surrendered ground.

Daniel Greenfield writes[2] …

A civil war has begun.


This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control.


Our President and his administration are experiencing an unprecedented full-on assault. They are using the classic Saul Alinsky “Rules for Radicals,” Rule #12:

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.“ Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.”

A civil war, yes, but, without a doubt, a spiritual war. Even the witches are coming out and joining forces to seize power for the radical secular – anti-God – left (read HERE[4]).

But, we have the supernatural power of God on our side. Of the many spiritual weapons at our disposal, the Chaplet of the Holy Face[5] remains one of the most powerful. The Chaplet of the Holy Face of Jesus[6] is a favorite of Cardinal Burke’s, especially in times of intense spiritual warfare, which we all understand we face at this moment in time.

Saint Athanasius relates that the devils on being asked what verse in the Scriptures they feared the most, replied: “That with which the 67th Psalm commences: Let God arise, and let His Enemies be scattered, and let them that hate Him flee from before His face!” They added that this verse always compelled them to take flight.

While we are all gearing up for Novena for Our Nation[7], beginning August 15 to October 7 (please mark your calendar), many feel we need to stay in the battle “right now.”

So, here is what we are going to do …

54 Day Holy Face Novena

Beginning Wednesday, May 24, we are asking as many as possible to join ranks in this spiritual combat to ask protection for the President and his administration. May 24th “happens” to be a day the witches are doing their “spells thing” and May 24th “happens” to be the day the President is meeting with Pope Francis. This will conclude 54 days later on July 16, the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

Those who enlist in this 54 Day Holy Face Novena, will be asked to offer three things each day

  1. Pray the Chaplet of the Holy Face (the “how to” can be found HERE[8])
  2. Pray St. Patrick’s Lorica Prayer for the President (found HERE[4])
  3. Add a daily penance (see March to Mount Carmel below)

Prayer Intention: For the protection of the President and his administration.

March to Mount Carmel 

While participants are free to choose any daily penance, we are recommending that as many as possible join in making our penance be 10,000 steps a day. Certainly, those with physical limitations cannot choose this penance but, for the rest, this is an excellent way to do something that requires effort, while adding to the fitness of the bodies God has given to us.

Think about how, after 54 days, each participant will have walked 540,000 steps … that’s right, over a half million steps up to the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.

Brown Scapular: At the conclusion of the 54 Days, we are asking everyone to renew their promise to wear the Brown Scapular or Scapular Medal (read HERE[9]) every day.

[10]Daily Reflections

All of the daily reflections will be drawn, as usual, from the book, 54 Day Basic Training in Holiness[11] (you can order the book HERE[12]). The reflections will also be posted daily to my website, RomanCatholicMan.com[13]. You will find them on the right column, entitle, 54 DAY HOLY FACE NOVENA (shown here). There will be no emails sent for this campaign. Emails will resume for our 54 Day Novena for Our Nation[7] beginning August 15.

I will also post daily reflections to Facebook on my personal Facebook wall (HERE[14]). And, I encourage you to join our Facebook group, Special Forces Training (join HERE[15]). By joining our SFT group, Facebook will notify you when each daily reflection is posted.


[16]Combat Chaplet of the Holy Face

We have just created a limited amount of the *new* Combat Chaplet of the Holy Face (shown here). Building on the amazing Combat Rosary[17] (Now the Official Rosary of the Swiss Guard), this chaplet rosary has the same weight and strength and military feel of the famous Combat Rosary[17], which is inspired by the original WWI military issued rosary.

These Combat Chaplets are in stock. Limited inventory. Get yours now at: RomanCatholicGear.com[18]
