Defeat Modernism! 54 Day Holy Rosary Novena

"Whoever desires to obtain favors from Me should make three novenas of the prayers of the Rosary, and three novenas in thanksgiving." – Promise of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary

Purpose: Beseech the Blessed Virgin Mary, and all of the Angels and Saints, to pray and intercede for us through the Sacred Heart of Jesus to protect us from the devil and to defeat modernism, the synthesis of all heresies, in the domestic church (the family), the parish, and society at large.

Structure: Pray 5 decades of the Holy Rosary daily for three novenas, each being 9 days (hence, the 27 days), in petition for protection, prayer, and intercession. The final three novenas, the following 27 days, will be intentions of thanksgiving.

Duration: July 13th - September 4th

Mysteries: Day 1 pray the Joyful Mysteries; Day 2 pray the Sorrowful Mysteries; Day 3 pray the Glorious Mysteries; Day 4 return to praying the Joyful Mysteries; etc.

Joyful Mysteries (special intentions for the domestic church):

- The Visitation (...for the intercession of His saints)

- The Nativity ( model my family after the Holy Family)

- The Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple ( consecrate the family to the Church)

- Finding Jesus in the Temple ( make Christ the center of the family)

Sorrowful Mysteries (special intentions for the parish):

- The Scourging at the Pillar ( defend Catholic truth from material and formal heresy)

- Crowning with Thorns ( recrown Christ as our King and Head of the Church)

- Carrying of the Cross ( help carry the Cross in restoring reverence to the parish)

- The Crucifixion ( restore supernatural faith in the Holy Eucharist and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass)

Glorious Mysteries (special intentions for society at large):

The Holy Rosary:

IN the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

IN nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.

Special Intention for penance and reparation for my sins; the conversion of my soul, and the conversion of all souls; for God to protect us from the devil and defeat modernism, the synthesis of all heresies; and, may all the angels and saints, and my guardian angel, pray with me through the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Apostles Creed: I BELIEVE in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; He descended into hell; on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

CREDO in Deum Patrem omnipotentem, Creatorem caeli et terrae. Et in Iesum Christum, Filium eius unicum, Dominum nostrum, qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto, natus ex Maria Virgine, passus sub Pontio Pilato, crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus, descendit ad inferos, tertia die resurrexit a mortuis, ascendit ad caelos, sedet ad dexteram Dei Patris omnipotentis, inde venturus est iudicare vivos et mortuos. Credo in Spiritum Sanctum, sanctam Ecclesiam catholicam, sanctorum communionem, remissionem peccatorum, carnis resurrectionem, vitam aeternam. Amen.

OUR FATHER, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

AVE MARIA, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen. (3x)

GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.

Oremus. Deus, refugium nostrum et virtus, populum ad te clamantem propitius respice; et intercedente gloriosa, et immaculata Virgine Dei Genitrice Maria, cum beato Joseph, ejus Sponso, ac beatis Apostolis tuis Petro et Paulo, et omnibus Sanctis, quas pro conversione peccatorum, pro libertate et exaltatione sanctae Matris Ecclesiae, preces effundimus, misericors et benignus exaudi.
