Independence Day for 5 Hispanic Nations


Today, in addition to being the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, is Independence Day for 5 Hispanic Nations: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. The following day, it’ll be Independence Day for Mexico, and on September 18th Chile, my dad is from Chile.

I just I thought post this thread requesting prayers that all these nations keep and/or restore their Catholic Faith and Culture. I’ll say in extra Rosary both today and tomorrow using this Spanish Rosary I have here, and I’ve also been saying a Rosary Novena for Chile:

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!
Saint James the Greater, pray for us!


Dear Lady, Mother of our Savior, embrace these Nations within Your Mantle, keep them close to Your Heart, let them feel the Love You have for each one of them… Ask Your Son to Bless them and keep them safe. Rosary will be said each night for them…God bless and keep you…:butterfly:


Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.


Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.



Hail Mary,
Full of grace,
The Lord is with Thee.
Blessed art Thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb,
Holy Mary
Mother of God
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of death,
