Our Lady of America Novena begins 9/17

Please pray the Command Prayer for a nine day Novena,
beginning today September 17 and ending September 25, 2018.

On the eve of the Feast of the North American Martyrs, September 25, 1956,
Our Lady first appeared to Sister Mary Ephrem, in the Our Lady Mother of Mercy Chapel, Rome City, Indiana:

“I am Our Lady of America.
I desire that My children honor Me, especially by the purity of their lives.”

The next day, Our Lady of America, confirmed Her Identity as that which the U.S. Bishop declared and which was ratified by the Holy See in proclaiming:

“I am the Immaculate One, Patroness of your land.
Be My faithful children as I have been your Faithful Mother.”
“It is the United States that is to lead the world to Peace, the Peace of Christ,
the Peace that He brought with Him from Heaven.”

Sister Mary Ephrem quoted Our Lady of America saying – “Dear children, unless the United States accepts and carries out faithfully the mandate given to it by Heaven to lead the world to Peace, there will come upon it and all nations a great havoc of war and incredible suffering. If, however, the United States is faithful to this mandate from Heaven and yet fails in the pursuit of Peace because the rest of the world will not accept or cooperate, then the United States will not be burdened with the punishment about to fall.” – Nov. 22, 1980

The Blessed Virgin Mary Promised that Her statue as Our Lady of America once placed in the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception would be a safeguard for our country, and her picture or statue honored in all homes, a safeguard for the family.  She also Promised that the medal would be a safeguard against evil for those who wear it with great faith and devotion. She taught Sr. Mary Ephrem this short prayer:

“By Thy Holy and Immaculate Conception O Mary, deliver us from evil.”
