Attacks on the family have escalated dramatically in a few short years. The sanctity and very nature of marriage and humanity are being undermined by the promotion of lifestyles and “gender identities” that destroy lives, happiness, and innocence.
Once again, during the month of June, CatholicVote will mobilize parents and communities to protect their children from pornographic books and media displayed in our libraries in the name of “gender identity.”
But all good works must begin with prayer, and that's where this novena comes in.
The fight to defend the family in our nation is critical, and Christ tells us that some demons “can only be driven out by prayer and fasting.” (Mark 9:29) This novena - leading up to the Feast of the Visitation on May 31 - will draw Catholics across the country together as we ask our Lord and the Blessed Mother to do battle for us, our families, and our children.
We will send you special access to all the novena prayers and an email each day to remind you to pray.
We’ve all seen the attacks on the family increase from every avenue from “drag queen” shows and story hours marketed to children to parents labeled “domestic terrorists” for asking what their children are taught in schools.
At CatholicVote, we’re always working to take action against the forces that threaten marriage and family life. One of our initiatives is our “Hide the Pride” campaign during the month of June, in which we mobilize parents and communities to protect their children from inappropriate displays in our libraries.
Our good works need to be accompanied by the power of prayer.
This novena – leading up to the Feast of the Visitation on May 31 – is an important step toward engaging as many people as possible as we prepare for Hide the Pride.

We will send you special access to the entire novena and send you an email each day to remind you to pray.
Share this prayer with your friends and family – we can encourage each other to pray for this intention. Remember, prayer changes history!
The word “novena” comes from the Latin word for “nine,” and a novena is nine days of prayer, usually for a specific intention. The first novena actually predates the Church itself! After Our Lord’s ascension into heaven, the apostles and the Blessed Mother prayed together for nine days in the upper room. On the ninth day, the Holy Spirit descended at Pentecost, the birthday of the Church!
Since then, the practice of devoting nine days of prayer for a particular cause or in honor of a particular saint has been embraced by Catholics throughout the world.
For more on the Catholic tradition of asking angels and saints to pray for us, see this great article from Ascension Press.
To paraphrase St. Augustine, work as if everything depends on you, and pray as if everything depends on God. We here at Catholicvote encourage you to be a light in a time of darkness and consider participating in Hide the Pride.
