- Today is the 54th and last day of the 54-Day "Get Strong" Novena For Our Nation that has been an anchor of my prayer life for the last 54 days. This has been my third time through Fr. Heilman's program in 2020 - since the CCP "pandemic" has kept me largely self quarantined. As the "pandemic' is still ongoing, my self-imposed quarantine will continue, and I'll still want the discipline of a structured prayer life to keep me from going crazy. Rather than putting myself through another 54 Day Novena at this time, I'll now be turning to Daily Readings and Prayers from the Breviary. I will, of course, continue with the daily recitation of 5 Decades of the Traditional Rosary and other prayers.
