An Invitation

Bishop Strickland invites all Catholics throughout the world to pray for the Church, the world, and the United States of America: "All are invited to join us as we pray for our Church, our world, and our nation," Bishop Strickland tweeted. "May all of God's children who have wandered from His path of Truth and Love know that His great Mercy calls them back to His Loving Son in the power of His Holy Spirit."

The bishop first announced the invitation on September 9. He asked the faithful to storm heaven for the Church, nation, and world. He said that the Novena begins on the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary (October 7) and ends on the feast of Saint Andrew the Apostle (November 30).

The diocese also issued a press release inviting the faithful to join the Novena: During the Novena, Bishop Strickland asks those praying to reflect on 1 John 4:16We have come to know and to believe in the love God has for us. God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in Him. – as we pray, through the Blessed Virgin Mary's intercession, for our Church, country, and world.
