Completed the 54-Day Rosary Novena

This past May I began the Double Great Novena, it is a 54-Day long Novena of Rosaries. I prayed the Rosary each day for several intentions. Many of them were for people I only know online so I do not know if my prayers were answered. But, I do know that two prayers that I earnestly prayed for where answered

  1. My mother's ankle problem was completed corrected
  2. A blog reader of mine got the job-of-a-lifetime
It is a wonderful devotion and because of it, I was making time to pray the Rosary daily. I'm so thankful for this devotion. If you would like to read more on this devotion, please read my original post on it.

Unfortumately,I wasn't able to recite the 54 day rosary novena at this time as I am currently reciting the 77 Day Rosary of Tears for the closing of an abortion mill in Wichita, Kansas, but I have said it many times in the past and each time it has yeilded WONDERFUL results. It is truly a powerful novena! Our Holy Mother is always looking out for us and keeping us in her loving care, drawing us nearer to her Son.

Thanks for sharing the good news!

God bless,

I am praying a 54 day rosary novena to discern my own vocation and for the closing down of an abortion clinic in Wichita, KS. I'm twelve years old and go to Blessed Sacrament Catholic school in wichita,and people have said that I'm to young to discern my vocation. I don't thinks so, though. Nothing is impossible for God. Queen of the Holy Rosary, pray for us.
In Christ,

Last year I completed the 54 day Rosary Novena. My husband had been out of work for a total of 6 months, and every time he was close to getting a job, the job mysteriously disappeared. Knowing that my husband is a hardworker and intelligent man, I was puzzled (as was he.) Within 12 weeks of my completing the 54 day Rosary Novena, my husband got the job of his dreams --- good pay, good benefits, good people. Our Lady interceded with our Lord. I hope this helps someone out there. God Bless!

I am currently only on my 3rd day of the 54 day novena, this will be my second or third time to say it it is Awesome, I am saying it for my duaghter who seems to have alot of issues, i started to ask for each of issues then decided to just say GOD's will,this would be easier... but the strange thing is i asked my husband if he wanted to do this with me and he said yes,(which i knew he would) anyway during the hurricane of Gustav we went to the shrine of the most blessed sacrament in alabama, and he picked up a book on the rosary not that we needed another one with the other 100 we have ha, anyway he asked if i wanted one and i said yes, and i never thought about the book again, when we started to say the rosary he took out the books and said he felt that the blessed mother led him to buy these for this rosary. So pray for my duaghters issue to be solved, they included work, school and her life in general.

God Bless and it really works

The Blessed Mother will never fail you. Thousands in Canada and the US are saying one for peace in the world by praying this novena for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate heart of Mary. Consider this an invitation to do the same. All the evil will cease as promised in Fatima. Pray for our Pope for strength to do as Mary requested before its to late. God Bless our Countries and this crazy world.

I am reciting my third 54 day novena since 2008. I did my first novena after I learned my son who was in the marines might be deployed. After praying the Novena my son did not go to war his whole 4 years of service and it was during the height of the war in Iraq & Afghanistan. My second Rosary Novena was recited for my other son who was with the wrong crowd and started doing heroine and other drugs. I was devestated. I did my Novena to the blessed mother and my son is now doing great and is a health nut. I am doing my third Rosary Novena and I have 17 days left before completion. This Rosary Novena is for work and finances. At my work I am paid by commission only and I am asking the blessed mother to please make sure that I am paid on a transaction soon. Im hurting financially (pretty darn bad). I know she will not let me down. Thank you blessed Mother for everything. :)

I am starting a 54 day novena for my son Jacob 26 to be healed of his newly diagnosed MS. My husband and I were in church saying the rosary together and my husband smelled the scent of roses pass by. I know Mother Mary was with us and it gave us great hope that Jacob will receive blessings from this prayer. Please include my son Jacob in your prayers.

It's the 54th day of my novena. I was praying inside the church infront of the crucified Lord and the Blessed Virgin Mary, I smelled a strong sweet scent of flower around me. After praying I went near the flowers decorated in the altar to check if the scent came from those flowers. To my surprise, the flowers do not have strong scent. I believe Mama Mary is interceding for my prayer Request for the salvation of my family and restoration of my dead marriage. I am now on my 3rd round my the 54 day novena. It is my hope that God will answer and end this trials in my family the soonest.

I already pray twice the 54 days Rosary Novena. I'm in great need of God's mercy and healing for I was diagnosed with breast CA stage 1A.I'm a Marian and Holy Child Jesus devotee.On my first day of the 54 days Rosary Novena (I discovered this novena thru internet) I ask for Jesus Christ & Mother Mary's sign if I'll have my radiation therapy after my 6 rounds of chemo.I tell God that If it's your will that I will have my radiation therapy then No sign but if not your will please give me a sign, a different sign from you God and another from Mama Mary.On the 50th day God gave me the sign thru our neighbor pastor.He visited me at home and pray for me and before he left he give a comic book about God and a booklet about the gospel of John.I didn't realize right away that t'was the sign that I asked for-any religious article from someone be it rosary,prayer booklet,etc that it will be given to me freely.T'was already on Day 52 while praying that I realized God give me the sign and knowing it made me cry. On that same day, I attended a mass in honor of Our Lady of Good Voyage (feast day that day) with my friend we arrived a lil bit early and after lighting a candle outside the church, I went directly to Our Lady's image praying to her with my eyes closed.I told Mama Mary that God give me already his sign that I won't have my radiation therapy. I dunno but someone is asking me to open my eyes,I'm hesitant to open but keep ringing on my ear open ur eyes and when I opened my eyes- a fresh white roses, which is the sign I've asked from Our Lady.I was sobbing til the mass started for I cant believe. I ask for one white rose only but she gave me 100 roses I guess for t'was decorated all over to her image.I did not saw the white roses when I go to her.God and Mama Mary performs miracles and praying the rosary has powers.

My 2nd 54 days Rosary novena just finished last Aug.23,2017 & this time I prayed with my family. I told God that I believe in Him and I trust him...are you with me God on my struggle? If you are with me I want to ask a brown scapular.I ask forgiveness to God cause I ask for bargain...maybe because of my cancer I'm afraid of it cause I want to serve Him more. On feast day of Our Lady of Mount Carmel last July 16,2017 while I'm praying in front of Our Lady's image my daughter gave me a brown scapular t'was the lay minister who gave her.She gave me 3 brown scapular of our lady.God was with me on my journey to healing and to you also. Another petition answered is the board exam of our neighbor who was taking Agricultural & Biosystem Engineering..she passed the exam last last Aug.28,2017..5 days after our novena.Another prayer granted, since my 1st rosary novena I asked God that my younger brother will get married in church.He's civil wed for 10 years.To God be the glory for last September 2, 2017 my brother and his wife was wed in catholic rites.Thank you Mother Mary for your powerful intercession! Thank you God for your love in mercy. I will continue in praising & glorifying you. I will continue praying for myself, for my family, for our world and to those who needs my prayers. There are a few of my prayers that never answered yet, I'm 100% God is with me in this journey.Ave Maria! Happiest birthday Mama Mary♡♡♡

I am praying this rosary novena to find God's grace and for a specific miracle in my life. I have been out of work for over four years, and i have a deep yearning to work with the foreign affairs ministry in my country. I got to the interview stage and did not do well. I am seeking God's guidance and divine favour to be given a second chance, for i feel deep within me that this is what i was called to do. I pray that our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, with the most powerful intercession of Mother Mary, will give me a second chance and make a way where there seems no way, for me to get a miraculous admission into the ministry of foreign affairs. Please Father, Son and Holy Spirit, i ask you through the intercession of our Lady, Queen of the most Holy Rosary to succour me and bless me with a miraculous job offer. Amen. Thank you.

Yesterday at work, I stopped by the chapel and prayed in front of the tabernacle (one perk to low Catholic school pay, any way). I told God I needed a miracle for some DEEP family issues. I called a friend about getting my intention in her parish's adoration intention list. She said, without my asking, that "the 54 day novena was miraculous for me". So -- starting a 54 day novena for an intention that *feels* bigger, deeper, harder than God can handle. I know in my *head* that no problem is too big for God, but that confidence hasn't made it to my heart yet. So many "what if's" about people's lack of openness to grace. I can't force these people to soften their hearts towards God and his healing. I know it is God's Will that these people be healed ('cause God doesn't want us hurting), but they have free will to reject God's healing, and that scares me the most -- that no matter how hard I pray, they will reject God's grace.
