How to Pray the 54-day Rosary Novena
The rosary novena is made by praying a 5-decade rosary for 54 consecutive days (for this pro-life intention).
The Novena commences on Easter Sunday, April 1st 2018 and ends on Thursday 24th May 2018.
- The first 27 days, said in Petition, commence on Easter Sunday, April 1st 2018 and ends on Friday April 27th 2018.
- The second 27 days, said in Thanksgiving, commence on Saturday April 28th 2018 and end on Thursday 24th May 2018.
- The Novena of Thanksgiving is prayed even if the answer to your intention was not yet given. In other words, during the second 27 days you are giving thanks that God’s will is going to be done.
- The day-to-day rosary meditations are in accordance with the guidelines set out in the Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and Mysteries of Light.
- You do not have to pray an extra Rosary, but include this important intention in the rosary you already say, ie. pray the Rosary you normally would and mention this petition each day.
- If possible, offer this intention at daily Mass.
- Join us any time: if you are reading this after the novena has begun, then please feel free to begin praying the Rosary and join the 54-day Novena at any time.
