Novena of Grace

Novena of Grace

Prayer to Saint Francis Xavier

Most lovable and loving St. Francis Xavier, in union with you I adore the Divine Majesty. The remembrance of the favors with which God blessed you during your life and your glory after death fills me with joy; and I unite myself with you in offering to Him my humble tribute of thanksgiving and praise. I ask you to secure for me through your powerful intercession, the inestimable blessing of living and dying in the state of grace. I also pray that I obtain the favors I ask in this Novena. (Mention your petitions.) But if what I ask is not for the glory of God, or for the good of my soul, please obtain for me what is more conducive for both. Amen.  

Our Father.  Hail Mary.  Glory Be.

Verse: Pray for us, Saint Francis Xavier. 

Response: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

O God, by the preaching and miracles of Saint Francis Xavier, You were pleased to bring into your Church the nations of the Indies. Grant that we who reverence his glorious merits may also imitate his example. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
