Novena To St. Cecilia # 1 (November 13 – November 22)

Repeat this prayer for nine days…

St. Cecilia,
I confide in your intercession
because you generously offered your life
as a sacrifice for the love of Jesus,
to Whom you were devoted with your whole heart and soul.
Jesus will not refuse your prayers.
Beg Jesus to grant me this favor:

[Mention your need(s) here…]

For the sake of Jesus Christ,
Who filled your heart with pure and heroic love,
Who crowned you with the glorious crown of martyrdom,
Who permitted your body to remain incorrupt
through these many centuries,
and Who willed that your memory be praised
by the Church at every Holy Day Mass,
I earnestly ask you to intercede for me.
I resign myself entirely to the Holy Will of God.
Help me to imitate your faith and love of God,
that I may be ready to make any sacrifice for my Catholic faith.
Through your prayers may I someday reach heaven
and praise with you the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
the loving Spouse of your soul and mine.

Amen.
