To make a Novena, means to persevere in prayer asking for some favour over a period of nine days in succession or nine weeks. It means fulfilling our Lord’s teaching that we must continue praying and never lose confidence. This confidence is based on our Lord’s words: “Ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. For whoever asks receives; whoever seeks finds; whoever knocks is admitted” (Lk 11:9-10).
Saints are those who distinguish themselves by heroic virtue during life and whom the Church honors as Saints. The Church honors the Saints who are already with the Lord in Heaven because they inspire us by the heroic example of heir lives and intercede for us with God.
The saints included in this lovely 64 page booklet are: St John of God, St Joseph, St Peregrine, St Rita, St Dymphna, St Anthony, St Anne, St Alphonsus Ligouri, St Therese Lisieux, the Holy Angels, St Jude and a novena which can be addressed to your personal patron Saint.
A lovely book which draws us closer to God in prayer, through His friends and ours…the Saints.
