While reflecting on the scripture readings of this day (WIS 18:6-9; HEB 11:1-2, 8-19; and LK 12:32-48), Fr. Riccardo tells the congregation that faith is a gift from God that enables us to know things that we otherwise cannot know. Fr. John discusses the adversary who tries to keep us from our destiny, and proposes the recitation of the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel at the end of each Mass.

Fr. Riccardo reflects on the words of Presidents John Adams, James Madison, and Abraham Lincoln as well as on a promise from God while offering a proposal to the parish community of Our Lady of Good Counsel. Fr. John points out that the only remedy for what ails our nation is to turn to God with fasting, repentance, and prayer. Fr. John proposes that for the remainder of the calendar year we fast each Wednesday as a parish family, gather to pray the rosary at 6 PM in the church, and then break the fast with reception of the Holy Eucharist during the evening Mass
