              Novena to
St. Martha
St. Martha, I resort to thy aid and protection. As proof of my affection and faith, I offer thee this light, which I shall burn every Tuesday.
Comfort me in all my difficulties and through the great favors thou didst enjoy when the Saviour was lodged in thy house, intercede for my family, that we be provided for in our necessities. I ask of thee, St. Martha, to overcome all difficulties as thou didst overcome the dragon which thou hadst at thy feet.

O glorious St. Magdalene, model of penitents,
obtain for me the grace of perseverance in the practices of self - denial according to the spirit of my vows: pray to God for me that I may appear before Jesus, Our Lord and Master,
at the moment of my death, with my lamp filled with the oil of faith and hope, and burning with the pure flame of charity, and thus merit to be received with thee into His eternal kingdom. Amen.

              Prayer to Saint
Matthias the Apostle
O Glorious Saint Matthias,
in God’s design it fell upon you
to take the place of the unfortunate Judas who betrayed his Master. You were selected by the twofold sign of the uprightness of your life and the call of the Holy Spirit.
Obtain for us the grace to practice the same uprightness of life and to be called by that same Spirit to wholehearted service of the Church. Then after a life of zeal and good works let us be ushered into your company
in heaven to sing forever the praises of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.

St. Monica
St. Nicholas
Prayer to St. Maximilian Kolbe
O Lord Jesus Christ who said, “greater love than this no man has that a man lay down his life for his friends”, through the intercession of St. Maximilian Kolbe, whose life illustrated such love, we beseech You to grant us our petitions... (here mention the requests you have).
Through the Knights of the Immaculata movement, which Maximilian founded, he spread a fervent devotion to Our Lady throughout the world. He gave up his life for a total stranger and loved his persecutors, giving us an example of unselfish love for all men - a love which was inspired by true devotion to Mary.
Grant O Lord Jesus, that we too may give ourselves entirely without reserve to the love and service of our Heavenly Queen in order to better love and serve our fellowman in imitation of your humble servant, Maximilian. Amen.
St. Michael the
Saint Michael the Archangel, Defend us in battle;
Be our protection against the wickedness
and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him,
we humbly pray;
And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
By the power of God, thrust into hell
Satan and all evil spirits Who wander through the world Seeking the ruin of souls. Amen
St. Monica Widow
Feast: August 27
One of the most famous mothers of all time, she persisted in prayer and example until she brought her son Augustine back not only to the faith and to penitence, but to an illustrious life in the Church.
She did not live to see her son’s success, but died shortly after his conversion.
In Your mercy, Lord, You received the tears of St. Monica as she wept for her son. At the intercession of both mother and son, give us grace to weep for sin and to obtain Your forgiveness.
Prayer to St. Nicholas
O good St. Nicholas, you who are
the joy of the children, put in my heart the spirit of childhood,
which the gospel speaks, and teach me to seed happiness around me.
You, whose feast prepares us for Christmas, open my faith to the mystery of God made man.
You, good bishop and shepherd, help me to find my place in the Church and inspire the Church to be faithful to the gospel. O good Saint Nicholas, patron
of children, sailors and the helpless, watch over those who pray to Jesus, your Lord and theirs, as well as over those who humble themselves before you. Bring us all in reverence to the
Holy Child of Bethlehem, when true joy and peace are found.

They show us the way,
and the truth, and the light, Great Saint!
intercede, that we always may be Devoted and loyal,
true children of thee,
Our love and devotion be ever like thine,
Our love and devotion be ever like thine,
Our thought be of Jesus,
our heart be His shrine.
And when to the end of life’s path we have frod,
Be near us great Bishop, Annointed of God.

O God, who gave to St. Peregrine an angel for his companion, the Mother of God for his Teacher, and Jesus for the Physician of his malady; grant, we beseech Thee, through his merits, that we may on earth intensely love our holy angel, the Blessed Virgin, and our Saviour, and in heaven bless them forever. Grant that we receive the favor for which we now petition. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

St. Pio
St. Raphael the Archangel
St. Raymond
Novena to
St. Philomena
Patron of Working People and of Christian Education of Poor People.
Faithful Virgin and glorious Martyr, who workest so many miracles on behalf of the poor and the sorrowing, have pity on me. Thou knowest the multitude and diversity of my needs. Behold me at thy feet, full of misery but full of hope. I entreat thy charity, O great saint! Graciously hear me and deign to obtain from God a favorable hearing for the request which I now humbly lay before thee. (Here specify petition) I am firmly convinced that through thy merits, through the scorn, the sufferings, the death thou hast undergone, united to the merits of death and passion of Jesus thy spouse, I shall obtain what I ask of thee: and in the joy of my heart I will bless God who is admirable in His saints. Amen.
Prayer to Saint Pio of Pietrelcina
Beloved Padre Pio, Saint of Pietrelcina, today I come to add my prayer to the thousands of prayers offered to you everyday by those who love and venerate you. They ask for cures and healings, earthly and spiritual blessings, and for peace for body and mind. Because of your friendship with the Lord, He heals those you ask to be healed, and forgives those you forgive. Through your visible wounds of the Cross, which you bore for 50 years, you were chosen in our time to glorify the crucifed Jesus. Because the cross has been replaced by other symbols, please hel us to bring it back in our midst, for we acknowledge it is the only true sign of salvation. As we lovingly recall the wounds that pierced your hands, feet and side, we not only remember the blood you shed in pain, but your smile and the invisible halo of sweet smelling flowers that surrounded your presence, the perfume of sanctity. Padre Pio, the healings of the sick are the testimony that the Lord has invited you to join the holy company of saints. In your kindness, please help me with my own special request. (mention here your petition, and make the sign of the Cross)
Bless me and my loved ones. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

To St. Raphael
The Archangel
Glorious Archangel St. Raphael, great prince of the heavenly court, you are illustrious for your gifts of wisdom and grace. You are a guide of those who journey by land or sea or air, consoler of the afflicted, and refuge of sinners. I beg you, assist me in all my needs and in all the sufferings of this life, as once you helped the young Tobias on his travels. Because you are the “medicine of God,” I humbly pray you to heal the many infirmities of my soul and the ills that afflict my body. I especially ask of you the favor (name it) and the great grace of purity to prepare me to be the temple of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

St. Raymond

Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted. Above all obtain for me the grace of one day beholding my God face to Face, and with thee and Mary and the saints praising and blessing to all eternity. Amen.
