Solemn Novena in Honor of Great St. Joseph

Prayer of the Novena

O Glorious St. Joseph, faithful follower of Jesus Christ, to you do we raise our hearts and hands to implore your powerful intercession in obtaining from the benign Heart of Jesus all the help and graces necessary for our temporal and spiritual welfare, particularly for the grace of a happy death, and the special favor we now implore.

O Guardian of the Word Incarnate, we feel animated with confidence that your prayers on our behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God.


O Glorious St. Joseph, spouse of the Immaculate Virgin, obtain for me a pure, humble and charitable mind, and a perfect resignation to the will of God. Be my guide, father and model through life, that I may merit to die as you did in the arms of Jesus and Mary.

Solemn Novena in Honor of Corpus Christi

Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament

O my God, I firmly believe that Thou art really and corporally present in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar. I adore Thee here present from the very depths of my heart, and I worship Thy sacred presence with all possible humility. O my soul, what joy to have Jesus Christ always with us, and to be able to speak to Him, heart to heart, with all confidence. Grant, O Lord, that I, having adored Thy divine Majesty here on earth in this wonderful Sacrament, may be able to adore It eternally in heaven. Amen.

For a particular favor

My Lord and my God, Thou has promised that "anything we ask the Father in Thy Name He will give." Relying on this promise we now ask our Heavenly father for these, our needs. We ask for them in Thy Name, O Jesus, provided they be for our good and Thy greater glory. (Mention favors).

Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, I firmly believe Thou canst grant me this favor that I ask, even though it should demand a miracle. For Thou hast only to will it and my prayer is granted.

Filled with this confidence, O Jesus, I come to Thee in the Sacrament of Thy love. Despise not my petitions but in Thy goodness hear and answer them. Show to all that Thou hast the Heart of the best of fathers and that He Who has given Thee to us for our salvation will through Thee and in Thy Name receive and grant our prayers. Amen.

Solemn Novena in Honor of Our Lady of Sorrows

For a Particular Favor or Grace

O most blessed and afflicted Virgin Queen of Martyrs, who didst generously stand beneath the cross, beholding the agony of thy dying Son; by the sword of sorrow which then pierced thy soul, by the suffering of thy sorrowful life, by the unutterable Joy which now more than repays thee for them; look down with a mother’s pity and tenderness, as I kneel before thee to compassionate thy sorrows, and to lay my petitions with childlike confidence, in thy wounded heart. I beg of thee, my mother, to plead continually for me with thy Son, since He can refuse thee nothing, and through the merits of His most sacred Passion and Death, together with thy own sufferings at the foot of the cross, so to touch His Sacred Heart, that I may obtain my request... For to whom shall I fly in my wants and miseries, if not to thee, O mother of mercy, who, having so deeply drunk the chalice of thy Son, canst most helpfully pity us poor exiles, still doomed to sigh in this vale of tears? Offer to Jesus but one drop of His Precious blood, but one pang of His adorable Heart; remind Him that thou art our life, our sweetness, and our hope, and thou wilt obtain what I ask, through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen. (Three Hail Mary's and "Virgin most sorrowful, pray for us.")
