Forgive me

I have been horribly lax in my blogging. You see I have been twotiming my blog. I've been cheating with Facebook.

Allow me to share with you two Novenas: Both can be said for 9 days or 9 hours.  (If you say for nine hours you say the prayer at the top of the nine hours and then again at the end of the ninth hour for 10 recitations. (But it is 9 hours)


NOVENA TO ST. ANTHONY - EXAMPLE 1

(pray for 9 days or 9 hours straight)

St. Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find (state your specific request or intention here!) which has been lost.

At least restore to me peace and tranquillity of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favor I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.

NOVENA TO ST. ANTHONY - EXAMPLE 3


(pray for 9 days or 9 hours straight)


Saint Anthony, glorious for the fame of your miracles, obtain for me from God's mercy this favor that I desire (state your specific request or intention here!)

Since you were so gracious to poor sinners, do not regard my lack of virtue but consider the glory of God which will be exalted once more through you by the granting of the petition that I now earnestly present to you.

Glorious Wonderworker, Saint Anthony, father of the poor and comforter of the afflicted, I ask for your help. You have come to my aid with such loving care and have comforted me so generously. I offer you my heartfelt thanks.

Accept this offering of my devotion and love and with it my earnest promise which I now renew, to live always in the love of God and my neighbor. Continue to shield me graciously with your protection, and obtain for me the grace of being able one day to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, there to praise with you the everlasting mercies of God. Amen.

Someone "reacted" to this as funny. What is so funny about prayers to Saint Anthony???

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
