Deliver Us, O Lord, From Every Evil

This is a MUST READ!

I was out yesterday afternoon for a doctor’s appointment (yes, nuns do go to the doctor) and as I was driving I was listening to EWTN radio on WIMM Catholic radio. The talk program hosts were discussing what Cardinal George, Archbishop of Chicago, believes are four choices a Catholic Institution will have here in the USA if the HHS regulations are not rescinded. We must work and pray to be delivered from these evils!

May God have mercy on our nation!

Act of Consecration of the United States
to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Most Holy Trinity: Our Father in heaven, who chose Mary as the fairest of your daughters; Holy Spirit, who chose Mary as your spouse; God the Son, who chose Mary as your Mother; in union with Mary, we adore your majesty and acknowledge your supreme, eternal dominion and authority.

Most Holy Trinity, we put the United States of America into the hands of Mary Immaculate in order that she may present the country to you.  Through her we wish to thank you for the great resources of this land and for the freedom, which has been its heritage. Through the intercession of Mary, have mercy on the Catholic Church in America.  Grant us peace.  Have mercy on our president and on all the officers of our government.  Grant us a fruitful economy born of justice and charity.  Have mercy on capital and industry and labor. Protect the family life of the nation. Guard the precious gift of many religious vocations. Through the intercession of our Mother, have mercy on the sick, the poor, the tempted, sinners – on all who are in need.

Mary, Immaculate Virgin, our Mother, Patroness of our land, we praise you and honor you and give our country and ourselves to your sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.  O Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, pierced by the sword of sorrow prophesied by Simeon, save us from degeneration, disaster and war.  Protect us from all harm.  O Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, you who bore the sufferings of your Son in the depths of your heart, be our advocate.  Pray for us, that acting always according to your will and the will of your divine Son, we may live and die pleasing to God.  Amen.

Imprimatur, Patrick Cardinal O’Boyle,
Archbishop of Washington, 1959,
for public consecration of the United States
to the Immaculate Heart of Mary;
renewed by U.S. Bishops, November 11, 2006

One thought on “Deliver Us, O Lord, From Every Evil

  1. What a beautiful picture of Our Lady holding the flag!

    She must be looking down from her throne beside her Son and shaking her head with dismay at the depths this country, dedicated to her under the title of her Immaculate Conception, has fallen.

    May her prayers help us in our battle against an administration that seeks to take away our freedoms!
