Novena of Easter

Mar. 30th to Apr. 7th

This novena prayer, although short is sufficient. It would be better of course to add, if time permits, three Hail Marys or say five times the Our Father, Haily Mary and Glory be to the Father, or to use some of the many well-loved novena prayers from other sources. Remember that prayers must be said with the lips in order to gain the indulgences. For the novenas that precede the movable feasts, it is necessary to begin nine days before the feast occurs.


O Divine Savior,
who rose from the dead on that first glorious Easter morn,
grant that I may
rise from my sins and so
live as to see You,
glorious and immortal,
in heaven.
I am nothing,
although nothing,
I adore You.

Five Our Father’s,
Hail Mary’s
and Glory be to
the Father’s
