NOVENA TO
SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI

Glorious Saint Francis,
who voluntarily renounced
all the comforts and riches of your home
to follow more perfectly the life of poverty
and abnegation of Jesus Christ:
obtain for us,
we pray,
a generous contempt of all things in this world,
that we may secure the true
and eternal things of heaven.

Say the Glory be....

O glorious Saint Francis,
who during the whole course of your life
continually wept over the passion of the Redeemer,
and labour most zealously for the salvation of souls: 
obtain for us,
we pray,
the grace of weeping continually
over those sins
by which we have crucified
afresh Our Lord Jesus Christ,
that we may attain to be of the number
of those who shall eternally bless His supreme mercy.

Say the Glory be....

O glorious Saint Francis,
who, loving above all things suffering and the cross,
merited to bear in your body the miraculous stigmata,
by which you became a living image
of Jesus Christ crucified: 
obtain for us,
we pray,
the grace to bear in our bodies
the mortifications of Christ,
that we may merit one day
to receive the consolations
which are infallibly promised
to all those who now weep.

"If we be dead with Christ Jesus, 
we shall live also with Him," says the Apostle;
"if we suffer,
we shall also reign with Him." [2 Tim. 2:11-12]

Pray for us,
Saint Francis,
that we may obtain the graces and favours
we ask for in this novena;
pray for us, especially,
that we may obtain the grace of perseverance;
of a holy death and a happy eternity. 

Say 5 times the Our Father...,
the Hail Mary... and the
Glory be....
