I am in a Fighting Mood . . .

Warning: The Devil is Prowling

My dear friends,

Please entrust these vital intentions to St. Joseph:  1) The holy Father’s visit to the United States, 2) the world meeting of families, 3) and most especially for the ordinary synod on the family.

I think its a good time to write and ask you to pray.  I know I have asked for lots of prayers in the past for which I am immensely grateful-BUT-this is a time in which there is need for constant prayer.  If I could put an infinite number of exclamation points behind this request for prayer and that you pray I would.  If we could push back evil, it will have to be with prayer, unceasing prayer.

I would ask that you pray for 3 specific events: 1) The Holy Father’s visit to the United States, 2)the World Meeting of Families, 3) and most especially for the Ordinary Synod on the Family in October.


Please consider the other wing of the spiritual life and that which gives added punch to prayer:  mortification.   I would suggest some fasting of this type:  no seconds, no desserts,  no salt, etc.

Let’s be on the alert.  The “devil is prowling about” and we need to be aware of his presence and his evil work.  Let’s do more than be on the defensive though. Let’s pray, pray, pray. In the month of October, and perhaps beyond, let’s say extra rosaries.

I have told many people that I am in a fighting mood and I am full of hope because I know “the gates of hell will not prevail” against out mother, the Church!  The question is not whether or not we win.  Of course we do!!!  And big time.  It’s a matter of whether or not you want to be on the winning team.  We are praying that more people join us for the great victory.

Thanking you ahead of time for praying and praying and praying.  You can’t take this message of prayer and fasting seriously enough.


God bless you and thank you,

Fr. William Moser

Please pray, mortify, and share!


Memorare to St. Joseph

Daily prayer for the Synod on the Family:

Remember, O most chaste spouse of the Virgin Mary, that never was
it known that anyone who implored your help and sought your
intercession were left unassisted. Full of confidence in your power
I fly unto you and beg your protection. Despise not O Guardian
of the Redeemer my humble supplication, but in your bounty, hear
and answer me.
