On the war path

I have declared war.

Now all I need is an army.  And the arsenal.  If you are the praying type, please leave me a message and I will let you know what we are going to war on.

I'm going to need:

Scapulars
Holy water
Blessed oil and salt (where the heck do I get those?)
Novenas
lots and lots of prayer

We've got some pretty powerful "heros" on our side:

St. Therese (of Lisieux), Patron saint of missions
Sts. Rita and Monica, patrons of impossible cases and difficult marriages/disappointing children respectively
St. John the Baptist, Patron Saint of converts and French -Canadians (among many other things)
St. Afra, Patron Saint of converts
Elizabeth Leseur
St. Mary Magdalen, Patron of converts
and many others...
