ROSARY ACROSS AMERICA
On January 20th, 2012, Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services, announced that non-profit employers will have one year to comply with the new HHS Rule mandating insurance premiums paid by Catholic employers will be used to cover drugs and procedures that are in direct conflict with the teachings of the Church.

On Saturday, February 11, feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, Relevant Radio began a 54 Day Rosary Novena praying that justice and wisdom prevail regarding the HHS mandate, for true freedom of religion, for the protection of freedom of conscience and for the end of abortion.
Each morning at 7:30 AM CT during Morning Air®, we will pray the rosary live on air. Families can pray with us listening to the radio wherever they are or by listening over the internet. This special rosary will be rebroadcast at 8:00 and 10:30 PM CT. In addition, over the next 54 days, we will pray one Memorare each hour for this intention. We will also encourage our listeners to strengthen the power of this prayer with fasting, and we will ask them to spread the word. This 54 Day Rosary Novena will continue until the Wednesday of Holy Week, April 4.
