Pentecost June 4, 2017
Bishops meeting in Indianapolis next week – please pray!
Several Bishops have relayed that the devotion to Our Lady of America and the requested procession are under consideration by various committees of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. This is the first time since the 1956 when Our Lady of America first appeared in Indiana that the Bishops as a group have discerned this devotion.
On June 14-15, 2017 the Spring Assembly of the Bishops Conference will meet in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Archdiocese of Indianapolis is the Metropolitan See of the State of Indiana. It is also an Archdiocese where there has been good ecclesiastical support for this devotion (See blog). The former Indianapolis Archbishop, Cardinal Tobin would frequently ask about the devotion and progress.
Please pray for these holy men who are called to lead the Church in the United States. Pray that whatever discussions and decisions they make while in Indianapolis are under the care and intercession of Our Lady of America. And in particular pray that Our Lady of America’s requests are honored and fulfilled. Please consider a Novena of Masses, Rosaries, or the Prayer to Our Lady of America, The Immaculate Virgin for this intention.
Please order your free prayer cards and do your part to spread this devotion.
“By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, deliver us from evil”
