Novena to the
Canadian Martyrs

Prayer to the Canadian Martyrs

Holy Martyrs and patrons, 
protect this land which you have blessed 
by the shedding of your blood. 
Renew in these days our Catholic faith 
which you helped to establish in this new land. 
Bring all our fellow citizens 
to a knowledge and love of the truth. 
Make us zealous in the profession of our faith 
so that we may continue and perfect the work 
which you have begun with so much labour and suffering. 
Pray for our homes, our schools, 
our missions, for vocations, 
for the conversion of sinners, 
the return of those who have wandered from the fold, 
and the perseverance of all the faithful. 
And foster a deeper and increasing unity among all Christians. 


* Patron of the Martyrs and of Canada

O God, 
who in your special Providence 
deigned to choose blessed Joseph 
to be the spouse of your holy Mother, 
grant, we beseech you, 
that we may deserve to have him 
as our intercessor in heaven 
whom we venerate on earth as our protector; 
You who live and reign world without end. 



Glorious Queen of Martyrs, 
to whom the early missionaries of this country 
were so devoted and from whom they received so many favours, 
graciously listen to my petition. 
Ask your Divine Son to remember all they did for His glory. 
Remind Him that they preached the Gospel 
and made His Holy Name known to thousands 
who had never heard of Him, 
and then for Him had their apostolic labors 
crowned by shedding their blood. 
Exercise your motherly influence as you did at Cana, 
and implore Him to grant me what I ask in this novena, 
if it be according to His holy will. 



O God, 
who by the preaching and the blood of your blessed Martyrs, 
John and Isaac and their companions, 
consecrated the first fruits of the faith 
in the vast regions of North America, 
graciously grant that by their intercession 
the flourishing harvest of Christians 
may be everywhere and always increased. 
Through Christ our Lord. 



O God, 
who inflamed the hearts of your blessed Martyrs 
with an admirable zeal for the salvation of souls, 
grant me, I beseech you, 
my petitions and all the requests recommended here today, 
so that the favours obtained through their intercession 
may make manifest before men 
the power and the glory of your name.
