Daily saint Intention
Today we are praying through the intercession of St. Peter Claver to help us serve the poor and defenseless without counting the cost. May St. Peter Claver serve as an example for us to open our eyes to the pain around us and serve those in need. St. Peter Claver, pray for us!
Novena Opening Prayer
O Holy Mother, at thy feet I offered a crown of roses, golden roses to remind thee of the divine life which was opened to humanity through your family’s suffering, the Glorious Mysteries of thy heart. Bound together by my petitions for the protection of human life and dignity and the defeat of Issue 1, I entrusted this gift to thee, knowing that I had no reason to despair while in the presence of your Most Gentle, Charitable Heart.
I now offer up my gratitude and thanksgiving for the swiftness of your warm embrace, and the bounty of graces thou, O Great Dispenser of God’s Graces, hast bestowed upon me. I love you, my Mother; help me never be far from thee! Amen.

The Fifth Glorious Mystery:

Novena Closing Prayer
Sweet Mother Mary, I offer thee my petition for the protection of human life and dignity and the defeat of Issue 1, bound to the mysteries of thy heart, that St. Joseph may take these sweet flowers and form from them a shining crown to place upon thy head. O Most Loving Mother, look with favor upon my gift, and grant the graces I now implore. Amen.
