Novena in preparation for the Feast

P1050500

P1050498

In the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Come to my aid, O God.
O Lord, make haste to help me.

Almighty God,
Father of mercies
and giver of all good gifts,
we come before you
to honor you in your saints
and to ask their help
in our many needs.
You promised those who ask, would receive;
those who seek, would find;
those who knock,would have doors opened to them.
Hear the prayers of your church,
grant our requests,
and pardon our sins.

(Bring your requests to God)

O good Saint Paul of the Cross,
you proclaimed God’s wonders
in the Passion of God’s only Son.
By word and deed,
you became a spiritual guide
and preacher of the gospel
to a world grown cold
to the love of Jesus Christ.
Help me to see God’s love
in the merciful cross of Jesus,
and teach me to trust
in the blessings God gives.
May the Passion of Jesus
be in my heart,
and bring life to all the world.
Amen.
