The bishops of the United States are encouraging Catholics to pray a novena to help form their consciences ahead of Election Day on Nov. 3.
"For nine consecutive days, Monday, October 26 through Tuesday, Nov. 3, participants will be encouraged to pray one Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be for the day's intention," says the USCCB's webpage for the 2020 Election Novena.
A closing prayer for elected leaders will be offered on day 10, Wednesday, November 4.
The closing prayer asks that "the leaders elected this week be guided by the Holy Spirit as they fulfill their positions."
