Novena To St. Charbel Makhluf # 1 (Feast: 3rd Sunday in July)

Countless…countless…miracles are attributed to this remarkable saint of the Middle East…St. Charbel.
Repeat this prayer for nine days…

Lord, infinitely Holy and Glorified in Your Saints,
You have inspired Charbel, the saint monk,
to lead the perfect life of a hermit.
We thank You for granting him the blessing
and the strength to detach himself from the world
so that the heroism of the monastic virtues of poverty,
obedience, and chastity,
could triumph in his hermitage.
We beseech You to grant us
the grace of loving and serving You,
following his example.
Almighty God, Who has manifested
the power of St. Charbel’s intercession
through his countless miracles and favours,
grant us…

[Mention your need(s) here…]

through his intercession.


Say 1 Our Father…

Say 1 Hail Mary…

Say 1 Glory Be…

O God of Silence,
in stillness Your adorable and mysterious Trinity lives,
loves and acts.
In the silence of time,
Your great Mysteries have been accomplished.
Blessed is the one who quiets everything within himself
and listens to the impelling voice which leads to You.
Charbel heard this voice
and closed himself in solitude.
He separated himself from a self-seeking world
and spoke with You.
You taught him to deny himself and to die,
like the grain of wheat.
You asked him to bind himself to You
in a life of poverty, chastity and obedience.
Freed from himself, he discovered You, 0 Lord,
embraced the way of the Cross
and filled his spirit
with the memory of Your Son’s passion and death.
The holy Mysteries became his life,
the Eucharist his real food
and the Mother of God his consolation.
Day and night he sought You in the Scriptures
and in the lives of the saints.
Through unending prayer his whole life
became a living hymn of praise to You
and ended in a sacrifice of love
that continues to proclaim Your glory.
We beseech You, through his intercession,
to inspire us to a life of prayer and sacrifice.
Help us to live lives of quiet dedication
to the service of Your Church, forever.
