Day 9 – Novena to Pray for Strength, Humility and Resolve for Our Bishops

Reflections

“If you weren’t already a Catholic would you become one today? Ask yourself that question. I’m devastated to answer, I don’t know. Would I see something holy and timeless?” -Matt Walsh

“Think about how many millions of people will never become Catholic because you bishops have given them a reason not to be.” -Matt Walsh

“It’s hard enough to be a Christian it this culture. … How much harder it becomes … when many priests and bishops, including the bishop of Rome are filled with contempt for faithful Catholics. We are not devils, Holy Father, and we deserve answers.” -Matt Walsh

“Be shepherds with the smell of sheep.” -Pope Francis

Padre Pio’s Sacred Heart Novena Prayer

O my Jesus, You have said: “Truly I say to you, ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you.” Behold I knock, I seek and ask for the grace of (Intention for Novena: “Grant our bishops the grace to be strong, to be willing to suffer, to be humble and to keep the course in their essential functions in the keeping of order in the Church through governing, teaching, and sanctifying”). Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be … Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You.

O my Jesus, You have said: “Truly I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father in My name, He will give it to you.” Behold, in Your name, I ask the Father for the grace of (Intention for Novena: “Grant our bishops the grace to be strong, to be willing to suffer, to be humble and to keep the course in their essential functions in the keeping of order in the Church through governing, teaching, and sanctifying”). Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be … Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You.

O my Jesus, You have said: “Truly I say to you, heaven and earth will pass away but My words will not pass away.” Encouraged by Your infallible words I now ask for the grace of (Intention for Novena: “Grant our bishops the grace to be strong, to be willing to suffer, to be humble and to keep the course in their essential functions in the keeping of order in the Church through governing, teaching, and sanctifying”). Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be … Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us miserable sinners and grant us the grace which we ask of You, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Your tender Mother and ours.

Say the Hail, Holy Queen and add: “St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.”
