The Holy Family in Prayer

Jesus, Mary, Joseph!

I give you my heart, my spirit and my life!


A Novena is a series of prayers that we offer for 9 consecutive days. It is good to add sacrifices or special practices of virtues to give more weight to our prayers.
  • Where does this Christian tradition come from?
Just before Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven on the day of His glorious Ascension, He instructed His disciples to remain united in prayer in the Cenacle until the coming of the Holy Spirit. These nine days, which they spent in intense prayer under the motherly inspiration of the Blessed Virgin Mary, are the origin of the first novena.
  • A Novena is made
  1. in preparation for a Feast Day
  2. to ask for a special grace
  3. in thanksgiving for a grace obtained.
When the desired favor is urgent, an accelerated novena can be made by saying the prayer every hour for nine consecutive hours.

Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and of the Mother of God. Amen.

Preparatory Prayer

O Jesus! We are going to walk with You on the road to Calvary which was so painful for You. Make us understand the greatness of Your sufferings, touch our hearts with tender compassion at the sight of Your torments, in order to increase in us the regret of our faults and the love we wish to have for You.
Deign to apply to all of us the infinite merits of Your Passion, and in memory of Your sorrows, show mercy to the souls in Purgatory, especially to those who are most abandoned.
O Divine Mary, who first taught us to make the Way of the Cross, obtain for us the grace to follow Jesus with the sentiments Your Heart was filled with as You accompanied Him on the road to Calvary. Grant that we may weep with You, and that we may love Your divine Son as You do. We ask this in the name of His adorable Heart. Amen.
