Novena Prayer to St Benedict

Novena Prayer to St Benedict

O glorious St. Benedict, sublime model of all virtues, pure vessel of God’s grace! Behold me, humbly kneeling at your feet. I implore your loving heart to pray for me before the throne of God. To you I have recourse in all the dangers which daily surround me. Shield me against my enemies, inspire me to imitate you in all things. May your blessing be with me always, so that I may shun whatever God forbids and avoid the occasions of sin.

Graciously obtain for me from God those favors and graces of which I stand so much in need, in the trials, miseries and afflictions of life. Your heart was always so full of love, compassion, and mercy towards those who were afflicted or troubled in any way. You never dismissed without consolation and assistance any one who had recourse to you. I therefore invoke your powerful intercession, in the confident hope that you will hear my prayers and obtain the special grace and favor currently requested by our holy and faithful priest, Fr Leo McKernan.

Help me, O great St. Benedict, to live and die as a faithful child of God, to be ever submissive to His holy will, and to attain the eternal happiness of heaven. Amen.
