Novena of Grace: 4-12 March 2017

The Novena of Grace will begin on Saturday 4 March and end on Sunday 12 March, anniversary of the canonisation of St Francis Xavier in 1622.

Each day of the novena, the prayer seeking the intercession of St Francis Xavier will be recited at the end of Mass.

At the 12 noon Mass each day Fr Donncha Ó hAodha / Fr Walter Macken of the Opus Dei Prelature will give a special homily taking in an aspect of the life of St Francis Xavier, with practical lessons being drawn for ordinary life. This will be especially appropriate for the first days of Lent.

 

Novena Prayer to St Francis Xavier

O most kind and loving saint, in union with you I adore the Divine Majesty.
The remembrance of the favours with which God blessed you during life,
and of your glory after death, fills me with joy;
and I unite with you in offering to Him
my humble tribute of thanksgiving and of praise,
I implore of you to secure for me through your powerful intercession
the all-important blessing of living and dying in the state of grace.
I also beseech you to obtain the favour I ask in this Novena
(here ask for the favour you wish to obtain),
but if what I ask is not for the glory of God or for the good of my soul,
obtain for me what is most conducive to both. Amen.

Let us pray,
O God, who was pleased to gather into your Church the peoples of the East
by the preaching and miracles of blessed Francis,
mercifully grant that we, who honour his glorious merits,
may also imitate the example of his virtues,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
(Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father)
