This weekend we observe the First Saturday Devotion. Next week we observe First Friday.
On First Fridays we are called to receive Holy Communion and pray in honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and in reparation for sings against the Sacred Heart. On First Saturdays we are called to receive Holy Communion, pray the rosary, and meditate for fifteen minutes on the mysteries of the rosary.
LET FREEDOM RING: 40 DAYS TO FREEDOM FROM THE DEVIL (CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE AT USGRACEFORCE.COM)
This prayer initiative is brought to us by US Grace Force
Through acts of reparation, fasting, penance, charity, and prayer (both personal and sacramental) we call upon the power of God to release ourselves, our families, our parishes, our dioceses, and our nation from all demonic influence and oppression.
Each day will be broken into prayer, reflection, and reparation.
- Reflection: A reflection (rotating from Fr. Peckman, Fr. Altman & Fr. Heilman) will be written for each day on a particular manifestation of the demonic and the sin it leads to. It will commend a corresponding virtue to cultivate.
- Prayer: Prayer of reparation and exorcism will be followed by a litany
Monday: Litany of Humility
Tuesday: Litany of St. Michael the Archangel
Wednesday: Litany of St. Joseph
Thursday: Litany of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus
Friday: Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Saturday: Litany of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Sunday: Litany of the Blessed Sacrament
- Acts of Reparation and Penance: Factoring into this will be variables of age, ability, and availability.
- To pray a Rosary for the intention of exorcism of the day’s area of reflection
- To pray a Divine Mercy Chaplet in reparation for the sin caused by the area of the day’s reflection
- To commit one act of either a spiritual or corporal works of mercy for either one who has been harmed by our sin or who has harmed us by their sin.
- To commit to fasting or abstinence days as prescribed below.
- To commit to a prescribed time of exercise based on one’s abilities
- To commit to going to Confession once a week (where available)
- To refrain from all use of the conventional media throughout the 40 days and to limit one’s use of social media to one hour a day for non-business or evangelical use.

Prayer for Freedom from the Devil (We will all pray the following prayer each day)
My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
At a word from You the devil and his minions flee in terror.
You are the source of all truth. You are the source of all strength.
By the power of Your Cross and Resurrection, we beseech You, O Lord
To extend Your saving arm and to send Your holy angels
To defend us as we do battle with Satan and his demonic forces.
Exorcise, we pray, that which oppresses Your Bride, the Church,
So that within ourselves, our families, our parishes, our dioceses, and our nation
We may turn fully back to You in all fidelity and trust.
Lord, we know if You will it, it will be done.
Give us the perseverance for this mission, we pray.
Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception … pray for us
St. Joseph … pray for us
St. Michael the Archangel … pray for us
(the patron of your parish) … pray for us
(your confirmation saint) … pray for us
A reflection will be sent out every day via US Grace Force email (sign-up below). Prayers and Litanies will accompany each day. It will also be posted on US Grace Force Website (usgraceforce.com) and shared on various platforms of social media.
The very evangelization of modern culture depends to a great extent on the influence of the media.
- Pope Saint John Paul II
On the first day of May 1997, the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker, we launched our first Covenant Network broadcast of Catholic radio on AM 1080 WRYT. Since that first broadcast, we have continued to grow. We are currently operating 41 stations (15 Full-power and 26 Translators.) We have permits to build more stations to reach even more people. Covenant Network is one of the founding Catholic radio affiliates of EWTN. We offer solid, inspirational, and informative Catholic local and national programming to our listeners.
Through the grace that we have received from Our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament, the mission of this apostolate is to evangelize the Catholic faith, primarily through radio.
As Baptized Catholics, we are called to be missionaries. We all have an even greater responsibility to "evangelize" our brothers and sisters, those in our own homes and communities. Catholic radio is one of the greatest tools we can use!
Covenant Network aims to share the joy, riches, and truths of our Catholic Faith…to inform, encourage, challenge, and yes, to entertain. We strive to evangelize our Catholic Faith in an upbeat, charitable manner.
Are you ready to start your day
on the path to sainthood?
It's not some lofty ideal.
It's our Gospel calling.
Roadmap to heaven is Covenant Network's LIVE & LOCAL morning show.
Every show features great information on how we can become SAINTS! It takes hard work, perserverance, and faith on our part, but most of all it takes the great gifts of the sacraments and grace God freely offers us everyday.

About the Host
Adam Wright is a Catholic husband and father of five. Before coming to Covenant Network, Adam spent over sixteen years working in parish based youth, young adult, and music ministry. His "go to" prayer is the Memorare. His favorite saint is Saint Philip Neri ("Cheerfulness strengthens the heart and makes us persevere in a good life. Therefore, the servant of God ought always to be in good spirits."). He encourages you to pray the rosary everyday!
Catholic radio is life changing. We have received hundreds of unsolicited letters from our listeners telling us how the programming has changed their lives. Our programming has facilitated conversions to the Catholic Church, helped bring fallen away Catholics back to the Church and equipped already practicing Catholics to live their faith more fully and share it more effectively.
