PATRIOTIC NOVENA BRACELET
Pray for the United States of America with this unique Patriotic Novena Bracelet, designed in conjunction with Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle exclusively for EWTN. It features a large 7/8" Miraculous Medal with blue enamel fill, a St. Benedict crucifix, and a Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart dual medal. The Miraculous Medal is in honor of our nation’s consecration to The Immaculate Conception. In 1792, the first bishop of the United States, Bishop John Carroll, consecrated the nation to Mary under the title Immaculate Conception, and in 1846, the bishops unanimously chose Mary under that title as the patroness of the nation.
The bracelet consists of nine double-capped 6 mm sapphire blue facet-cut round glass beads (representing a novena) with white pearls and silver plated rondelle beads with tiny red crystals along with silver plated spacer beads and a decorative heart-shaped toggle clasp and comes in a gift box with a prayer by Archbishop John Carroll.
The prayer is entitled:
“Entrusting America to Mary Immaculate” and reads:
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 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 ourselves to you. Protect us from every harm. 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.
This Patriotic Novena bracelet would make a nice gift for any occasion and could be a wonderful reminder to pray for our nation.
