St Rose of Lima Novena Prayer

posted Jun 22, 2017, 6:52 AM by Principal account
A Novena is an ancient devotion that consists of 9 days of prayer. Novenas are often prayed in preparation for a feast day or for a specific intention.  The St Rose of Lima Novena was chosen for this weeks prayer as she is linked closely to our school as one of our faction patron saints.  As a family and community you may like to pray the nine day novena prayer and offer it up for those sick in our school community and in your own families. Below is the first of the nine prayers followed by a link to a site that contains the next eight.  We have faith that through prayer God will hear us.

Day 1: Saint Rose, pray for us that we may one day glorify the Blessed Trinity in heaven. Obtain for us your lively faith that we may consider all people, things and events in the light of God. Pray, that we may be generous in making sacrifices of worldly things as you so wisely did. Please, also, pray for me and my intentions (State your intentions here).
