Miraculous Novena of Grace
Mar. 4th to Mar. 12th
Prayer to Saint Francis Xavier
Most amiable and most loving Saint Francis Xavier,
in union with thee I reverently adore
the Divine Majesty.
I rejoice exceedingly on account of the
marvelous gifts which God bestowed upon thee.
I thank God for the special graces He gave
thee during thy life on earth and for the great
glory that came to thee after thy death.
I implore thee to obtain for me,
through thy powerful intercession,
the greatest of all blessings – that of living
and dying in the state of grace.
I also beg of thee to secure for me the
special favor I ask in this novena.
(Here you may mention the grace,
spiritual or temporal,
that you wish to obtain)
In asking this favor,
I am fully resigned to the Divine Will.
I pray and desire only to obtain
that which is most conducive to the greater
glory of God and the greater good of my soul.
V. Pray for us,
Saint Francis Xavier.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises
Who didst vouchsafe,
by the preaching and miracles of Saint Francis Xavier,
to join unto Thy Church the nations of the Indies,
we beseech Thee,
that we who reverence his
glorious merits may also imitate his example,
through Jesus Christ Our Lord.
3 Our Father’s and
3 Hail Mary’s
in memory of Saint Francis Xavier’s devotion to the Most Holy Trinity
and Glory be to the Father 10 times in thanksgiving
for the graces received during his 10 years of apostleship.
