USGF Special Operations – USCCB/KC Novena for Life, January 14-22

by Fr Richard Heilman | January 10, 2019 6:08 PM

Novena for Life: January 14-22 – Our nation seems to be at a tipping point toward a Culture of Life, especially with this President. We need to work and pray as best we can! This is the Novena encouraged by the USCCB, and strongly promoted by the Knights of Columbus. This novena leads up to the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. The United States Grace Force[1] will join forces and will be emailing (and posting on social media) to their troops the daily prayers and reflections for this Novena for Life.

Our Nation began in 1776 with the “Declaration of Independence,” which declared “… that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” In 1973, a majority of Supreme Court Justices concluded that since they and science could not then determine when LIFE began, they would legalize abortion on demand, up to the time of natural birth, under the premise of a woman’s right of privacy. Since that ruling, more than 60 million preborn babies have been legally murdered. We, as a Nation, have now turned away from our Creator (God) and legally condone the murder of the preborn.

Since that 1973 ruling, we watched as our nation’s Respect for LIFE slowly degraded; many State Legislatures have legally condoned Physician Assisted Suicides for the mentally impaired, terminally ill, physically handicapped and the aged; many of our larger cities witness human trafficking and the senseless murder of hundreds of innocent people every week – yet we remain silent. We pray this NOVENA for God’s grace to give us strength to speak out to our neighbors, politicians and news organizations, and tell them that these forms of Legalized Murder and assaults on human dignity are a violation of God’s natural law; and that, as a Nation, we must develop a change of heart, prayerfully repent, and ultimately change these laws and the conscience of our Citizens.

[2]Operation Super Blood Wolf is so named because just as we are about to conclude this Novena for Life, we will be treated to a Super Blood Wolf Moon (Jan. 20-21). Very simply understood, the moon is called “Super” because it is closest to earth (so will appear larger than usual), “Blood” because it has a reddish look as it is in a lunar eclipse, and “Wolf” because it is the first full moon of the calendar year. I believe God uses “signs in the sky” to get our attention, as we see throughout the Bible. I’m not quite sure what God may be doing with this particular sign, but having it occur so close to the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, while we are blessed with the most pro-life President ever, gives hope that something significant “may” occur this year. We’ll wait and see … with great hope!

So, here’s what you need to do to prepare for “Operation Super Blood Wolf” that begins on January 14:

If you have not done so yet, you should enlist in the United States Grace Force HERE[3].

NOTE: All troops of the US Grace Force will be notified by email[4] of FREE Epiphany Holy Water & Salt, and two Green Scapulars (touched to a Relic of the True Cross). The first email notification will occur in the week of January 13. You will be directed to order HERE[5].

Also, I want to strongly encourage everyone to sign-up to pre-order the all new United States Grace Force Prayer Book. It should be available to send out in early February.
