  2. Novena To St. Anthony
    O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints, your love for God and Charity for His creatures made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers. Miracles waited on your word, which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this thought, I implore of you to obtain for me (state your specific request or intention here!)

    The answer to my prayer may require a miracle, even so, you are the Saint of Miracles. O gentle and loving St. Anthony, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the ears of the Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved to be folded in your arms, and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours. Amen.
    Say 1 “Our Father, 1 “Hail Mary”, 1 “Glory Be To The Father”
    Note: Pray for 9 days or 9 hours straight. Publication must be promised………thanks blessed St.Anthony

  3. The Saint Francis Xavier Miraculous Novena of Grace

    Most amiable and most loving Saint Francis Xavier, in union with thee I reverently adore the Divine Majesty. I rejoice exceedingly on account of the marvelous gifts which God bestowed upon thee. I thank God for the special graces He gave thee during thy life on earth and for the great glory that came to thee after thy death. I implore thee to obtain for me, through thy powerful intercession, the greatest of all blessings–that of living and dying in the state of grace. I also beg of thee to secure for me the special favor I ask in this novena. (Here you may mention the grace, spiritual or temporal, that you wish to obtain.) In asking this favor, I am fully resigned to the Divine Will. I pray and desire only to obtain that which is most conducive to the greater glory of God and the greater good of my soul.

I know this novena which was in honor of marriage and for the feast of the nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary was the reason…how cool is that. :) There are no coincidences only miracles. Thanks be to God!

I wanted to share with you and this group that one of my intentions – for career direction – was addressed in just the second day of the novena. I received a new job offer after two years of searching!
