Novena In Honour Of Saint George


Almighty and eternal God!
With lively faith
and reverently worshiping Thy divine Majesty,
I prostrate myself before Thee
and invoke with filial trust
Thy supreme bounty and mercy.
Illumine the darkness of my intellect
with a ray of Thy heavenly light
and inflame my heart
with the fire of Thy divine love,
that I may contemplate the great virtues and merits
of the saint in whose honor
I make this novena,
and following his example
imitate, like him,
the life of Thy divine Son.

Moreover, I beseech Thee
to grant graciously,
through the merits and intercession
of this powerful Helper,
the petition which through him
I humbly place before Thee,
devoutly saving,
“Thy will be done on earth
as it is in heaven.”
Vouchsafe graciously to hear it,
if it redounds to Thy greater glory
and to the salvation of my soul.



who didst grant to Saint George
strength and constancy
in the various torments
which he sustained for our holy faith;
we beseech Thee to preserve,
through his intercession,
our faith from wavering and doubt,
so that we may serve Thee
with a sincere heart faithfully unto death.
Through Christ our Lord.



Faithful servant of God
and invincible martyr,
Saint George;
favoured by God
with the gift of faith,
and inflamed with an ardent love of Christ,
thou didst fight valiantly
against the dragon of pride,
falsehood, and deceit.
Neither pain nor torture,
sword nor death
could part thee from the love of Christ.
I fervently implore thee
for the sake of this love to help me by thy intercession
to overcome the temptations that surround me,
and to bear bravely the trials
that oppress me,
so that I may patiently
carry the cross which is placed upon me;
and let neither distress nor difficulties
separate me from the love of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Valiant champion of the Faith,
assist me in the combat against evil,
that I may win the crown promised to them
that persevere unto the end.


My LORD and my God!
I offer up to Thee
my petition in union
with the bitter passion and death
of Jesus Christ, Thy Son,
together with the merits
of His immaculate and blessed Mother,
Mary ever virgin,
and of all the saints, particularly with those
of the holy Helper
in whose honour I make this novena.

Look down upon me,
merciful Lord!
Grant me Thy grace and Thy love,
and graciously hear my prayer.
