Novena To St. Dominic Savio (April 28 – May 6)

[Say the following prayers for 9 days in a row.]

Dear Saint Dominic Savio
you grew under the supervision
and care of St. John Bosco.
Witnessing the zeal of your mentor
you shared his desire
to bring the Lord a great many souls.
Despite your frail and weak constitution
you devoutly waited for Holy Mass
kneeling outside your church
until the doors opened despite rain or snow.

We ask you to look upon all young people
and inspire them to love the Holy Eucharist as you did.
Pray that we may all share your aversion for sin
and achieve a life of sanctity.
Jesus always spoke of his love for children
and we know that your requests will be well received.
We humbly ask that you
bring our petitions before the Lord.

[Mention your intentions here…]

Saint Dominic Savio,
Pray for us.

Saint Dominic Savio,
Pray for us.

Saint Dominic Savio,
Pray for us.

Say 1 Hail Mary…
