One day moooore

Whoa! The clock on says 20 hours! Thank you to everyone who has sponsored me over the last few months, you all are amazing. If you're just coming into the game... we're almost at the end of a novena for all of your prayer intentions. All of the prayers for this novena can be found at if you want to get a late start! I'm heading off to St. Michael's Abbey in a little while to pray, record the rest of my Litany, and offer my rosary and mass for you all this afternoon. One more update before the race (maybe two if I find time to write this afternoon). Please pray for me... at this time tomorrow I'll be rounding off the last quarter of the marathon! God bless you! 

Day 8:

Novena of the Miraculous Medal through the intercession of Our Lady:

O Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of Our Lord Jesus and our Mother, penetrated with the most lively confidence in your all-powerful and never-failing intercession,  manifested so often through the Miraculous Medal, we your loving and trustful children implore you to obtain for us the graces and favors we ask during this novena, if they be beneficial to our immortal souls, and the souls for whom we pray.  
(State your intention here...)  You know, O Mary, how often our souls have been the sanctuaries of your Son who hates iniquity.  Obtain for us then a deep hatred of sin and that purity of heart which will attach us to God alone, so that our every thought, word and deed  may tend to His greater glory. Obtain for us also a spirit of prayer and self-denial that we may recover by penance what we have lost by sin and at length attain to that blessed abode where you are the Queen of angels and of men.

Novena for Any Necessity through the intercession of St. Maximilian Kolbe & St. Faustina:

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted,
And those who are crushed in spirit, He saves. 
Your goodness, heavenly Father, 
responds speedily to our wretchedness. 
In my distress I call upon you 
to hear and answer my prayers. 
In you alone, O God, 
I will continue to trust despite everything. 
In Christ's name.
