Nineveh 90 – Ten Elements

  1. For these 90 days, resolve to let go of repetitive sin you struggle with (e.g., acts of impurity, over-eating, alcohol, etc.)
  2. Wear Brown Scapular (Scapular Medal[1] allowed) – Akin to Sackcloth
  3. Daily Mass (If you are able)
  4. Confession (at least once a month … immediately following grave sin)
  5. Support System: Create or join a “Nineveh 90 Squad” of 3+ people. Maybe create a Facebook group. Also, try to join together with an “Accountability Buddy.”
  6. Daily Prayer (Developing a quality Catholic Prayer Life)
    • Morning Offering[2]
    • Angelus[3] (6,Noon,6)
    • Rosary[4]
    • Holy Hour[5] (or at least 20 minutes of quiet prayerful reflection time. Does not need to be before the Blessed Sacrament. This is normally done at home or your favorite prayer space … maybe create a “God Cave” in your home)
    • Bedtime Prayers[6]

    • Limit television or movies (news allowed)
    • Only music that lifts the soul to God
    • Limit televised sports (maybe one per week)
    • Limit recreational computer time (only use for personal needs and fulfillment. May be needed for Nineveh 90 too)

  9. 33 Day Preparation for Consecration – February 26 to March 30 (Good Friday)
