 A Message from The Catholic Crusade
The Church dedicates the month of May to the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is the Mother of the Church and the mother of all who receive her and honor her as their own spiritual mother. Three special feast days in May honor the Virgin Mary: Our Lady of Fatima (May 13th), Mary, Help of Christians (May 24th) and the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary (May 31st).

There are four novenas that are commonly prayed in May:
  • • Novena to Our Lady of Fatima (May 4-12)
  • Novena to Saint Dymphna (May 6-14)
  • • Novena to Saint Rita (May 13-21)
  • • Novena to the Holy Spirit (May 27-June 4th)
We will post the prayers for the novenas (in both text and video forms) on our website and social media accounts as we approach the start dates of each novena. Be sure to follow us on YouTube and Facebook to receive our posts.

May 1st is First Friday. For anyone interested in participating in the First Friday Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we have recommended prayers here, along with additional information regarding this devotion.

SCAM ALERT: Sadly, we have been dealing with scammers creating YouTube channels using our "The Catholic Crusade" name and logo... pretending to be us... asking our viewers to send donations to an orphanage in Africa via a phone app. THIS IS A SCAM. Please be careful with whom you send money to on the Internet. Verify all information before sending money to anyone who claims to be from a charitable organization.

Recent Prayers & Devotions
Prayer to Obtain the Grace
of All the World's Masses


The Prayer to Obtain the Grace of All the World's Masses should be prayed daily and made known. Our prayers are strongest at the Consecration in Holy Mass (at the raising of Host and Chalice). In eternity, we shall fully realize that it was certainly worthwhile to have assisted at Holy Mass daily. Pray for priests that they may offer the Mass with holy love and reverence.
Acts of Faith, Hope & Love

The Acts of Faith, Hope and Love prayer is based on the three theological virtues taught by St. Paul in the Gospel (1 Corinthians 13:1-13). These graces are gifts from God given to us freely; and we are free, but not required, to accept and use them.
Daily Consecration to Jesus,
Mary and Joseph


The Daily Consecration to Jesus, Mary and Joseph are prayers of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and Saint Joseph are encouraged to be prayed daily.
Prayer to St. Michael (long version)

Prayer to St Michael the Archangel (Long Version) | Pope Leo XIII, after mass one day, experienced a vision of the evil spirits attacking and seeking to the destroy the Church. In the midst of the attack was St. Michael the Archangel battling with the evil spirits, casting Satan and his legions into the abyss of Hell. This prayer, the original and longer version of the Prayer to St Michael the Archangel, was composed by Pope Leo XII in response to the vision; calling upon St Michael to defend the Church and its people.
