Novenas

(1/6) > >>

LausTibiChriste:
I've always been a huge fan of novenas - I feel it gives structure and dedication to prayer (particularly petitions) instead of just praying haphazardly for 3 days and then complaining that God doesn't hear your prayers. They're obviously not 'good luck charms' or a way to 'manipulate' God, just a great way to dedicate and focus your prayer.

There's a lot of novenas out there and I constantly feel like I'm finding new ones I've never heard about, so I thought we could post our favourites here and hopefully, some will find it useful / find new novenas they never heard about.

It doesn't necessarily have to be a strict '9-day novena' as there are many that aren't strictly 9 days so any sort of prayer that fits the mould would work fine. And even any 'normal' 9-day novena you've found to be particularly powerful would be great too.

(Sorry in advance for any links to modernist sites)


Emergency 9 Hour Novena to the Infant Jesus of Prague
For when you don't have 9 days to wait for an answer.


54 Day Rosary Novena
Miraculous, and long. It's actually 6 novenas in one - 3 novenas of petition and 3 novenas of thanksgiving. Originated with Our Lady of Pompeii


Annunciation Novena
If you think the 54-day Rosary novena is long, think again. This novena lasts 9 months(!) - from the Feast of the Annunciation (March 25) until Christmas


Novena of Grace
in honour of St Francis Xavier. Usually prayed leading up to his feast day (March 4 - 12 or 3 -11 depending how you roll) as he was canonized 12 March, but can also be said Nov 24 - 2 Dec leading up to his feast day on 3 Dec


Holy Cloak Novena
30 Day Novena to St Joseph in honour of the 30 years he spent with Our Lord


St Andrew's Christmas Novena
Prayed from St Andrew's feast day (30 Nov) until Christmas.

We overlap in our favourites.

First two are outstanding, Holy cloak of St Joseph another great one and the last one.....well someday it will be answered, every Christmas the children and I do it for my husband to receive the sacraments.

St Dympna, very good for mental illnesses

And actually, I did the Sorrowful mysteries of Our Lady from a post that you made Laus and on both occasions, I had a terrible terrible event happen almost immediately after but later on I saw the spiritual benefits of those events and it cranked up my desire to perfect myself further.  Then I did a third one to rid myself of fear of saying a novena of Her sorrowful novena and I got peace. 

edit to add explanation.  In speaking to a priest one day, I told him how I said the sorrowful mysteries of Our Lady and bad things happened and I sort of joked, I won't say those prayers again for fear of what happened.  Well anyway I got a pang of regret when I was home, even though I didn't mean it maliciously I didn't feel right to associate negativity with Her beautiful sufferings and give into the fear so with baited breath, I did them again and as I said, I got peace.

Awesome! Forgot to mention the one to Our Lady of Sorrows. She has a special place in my heart and that novena works like clockwork. Fr Ripperger has always said She'll answer you in ways you'd never expect and he has yet to be wrong about that
