Day 6 - The Novena for Marriage & Family

Thursday, September 13, 2018

Saint John Paul II wrote at length about the family in 1994 when the Church celebrated the 'Year of the Family.'

He said, "The civilization of love is possible; it is not a utopia. But it is only possible by a constant and ready reference to the 'Father from whom all fatherhood on earth is named', from whom every human family comes."

Today, let's pray that all families may be ever more Christ-centered, recognizing all good as gifts from our Father.

Here are the prayers for today:

Day 6 - The Novena for Marriage & Family
(Audio/Video Version)

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Jesus, I trust in You. Please grant through Your mother’s intercession that I may always bring Your hope into my family.

Jesus, I trust in You. Please grant through Your mother’s intercession that I may always bring Your love into my family.

Jesus, I trust in You. Please grant through Your mother’s intercession that I may always bring Your mercy into my family.

Our Lady, on this upcoming feast of your birth, please pray for stronger and holier marriages.

Amen.

Oh holy Mother, St. Joachim and St. Anne were delighted to love and care for so holy a child. Pray for me today that the feast of your birth may give great joy to my soul that I may show greater charity to my parents and grandparents in word, prayer and deed.

Dearest Mother, please pray for me and for these my intentions…

(State your intentions)

Hail Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
