  1. He has a sense of humor–for certain. We’re about to begin a family novena…not looking forward to it (like to do things alone) but also looking toward what it will mean for our family. Thank you for sharing. Thanksgiving prayers have made the most impact in my life. <3

  2. I have done the 54 day novena a few times. It has always been in conjunction with a particularly tough time in my life (or the lives of those closest to me) and I have always been answered. Not always with a yes but always clearly answered. It does take a commitment and can be difficult to complete, however, I have to think it is always fruitful. As I type this on the Solemnity of the Holy Family, may our Blessed Mother keep you close to herself and her Son.

  3. You will be blessed! I did it once during a particularly hard time in my faith and another right before our wedding. Even if it’s the grace of knowing you completed it, it’s worth it! :)

    Of cource,the efficacy does not depend on the number of days and requests. Prayers may not be answered in the way we expect. We can only praise Him and thank Him ,even for that state

      What was the result of your novena? I am currently praying the novena as well, but doing it expressly (6 rosaries per day for 9 days =54). I am in the thanksgiving phase, and was wondering your experience.
