Special message, prayer from Card. Burke for @fatherz readers and others

On 8 August 2018, at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe near La Crosse, WI, I asked Card. Burke to say a prayer for the Church and for the clergy. Perhaps you, too, would say a Memorare for the Church and her clergy?

    Thank you for posting this. So many rosaries being prayed, so many seeking help and consolation through Mary in faith. And so many good and courageous clerics such as yourself keep the sheep from panic and despair. The hirelings, on the other hand. . . . .

  2. Pray the “Flying Novena.” I can attest to the fact that a day doesn’t go by before your request has been granted through the prayers of Our Most Blessed Mother in one way or another. It is amazing.

    “Mother Teresa used this prayer constantly: for petitions for the cure of a sick child, before important discussions or when passports went missing, to request heavenly aid when the fuel supply was running short on a night-time mission and the destination was still far away in the darkness. The Quick Novena had one thing in common with nine-day and even nine-month novenas: confident pleading for heavenly assistance, as the apostles did for nine days in the upper room ‘with Mary, the mother of Jesus, and the women’ (Acts 1:14) while waiting for the promised help from the Holy Spirit.”

    I do pray daily for the Church and the clergy, who are daily on the front lines, but just prayed a special Memorare in response to your request.

    Thank you. I prayed with him, somewhat intense and moving. I got to go to the magnificent Guadalupe Shrine just one time and certainly thought of him (and prayed for him) there but I don’t drive so I have never been there when the Cardinal was there.
