"I join in the unanimous worry about the situation in Afghanistan. I ask you to pray along with me to the God of peace so that the din of weapons ends and that solutions can be found around a table of dialogue." - Pope Francis

In light of the recent events in Afghanistan and Pope Francis' call to prayer, we have joined with Hallow App in an Emergency Novena Community Challenge to pray for peace for the people of Afghanistan.

Whenever Mother Teresa needed to pray for someone in an emergency, she would pray this Emergency Novena. The prayer is a simple & meditative nine Memorares in petition, and then a tenth in thanksgiving. As a part of this challenge, we'll pray this prayer together every day for each of the next 9 days. The novena will be led by Amy D'Ambra, founder & president of My Saint My Hero.

Please join us as we pray the Emergency Novena for peace in Afghanistan and the world on Hallow as well as live 6pm pst Tuesday, August 17 - Wednesday, August 25 on @mysaintmyhero Instagram Live.

Remember, o most GRACIOUS Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession was left unaided, inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions ***** but in your mercy, hear and answer me. AMEN

(Repeat 9 times in Petition Say the 10th one in Thanksgiving for God hearing and answering your prayers).

In the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. AMEN
