Novena To St. Dymphna # 2 (May 7 – May 15)

Repeat this prayer for nine days…

St. Dymphna, a great wonder worker
in every affliction of mind and body,
I humbly implore your powerful intercession
with Jesus through Mary,
the Health of the Sick.

You are filled with love and compassion
for the thousands of patients
brought to your Shrine for centuries
and for those who cannot come to your Shrine
but invoke you in their homes or in hospitals.
Show the same love and compassion toward me,
your faithful client.
The many miracles you have wrought
through your intercession give me great confidence
that you will help me in my present need.

(Mention your need(s) here…]

I am confident of obtaining my request,
if it is for the greater glory of God
and the good of my soul.
For the sake of Jesus and Mary,
whom you loved so earnestly,
and for whom you offered your life in martyrdom,
please, grant my prayer.

St. Dymphna, young and beautiful, innocent and pure,
help me to imitate your love of purity.
You chose to be martyred by your own father’s sword
rather than consent to sin.
Give me strength and courage
in fighting off the temptations of the world
and evil desires.

As you have given all the love of your heart to Jesus,
help me to love God with my whole heart
and serve Him faithfully.
As you bore the persecution of your father
and the sufferings of an exile so patiently,
obtain for me the patience I need
to accept the trials of my life
with loving resignation to the will of God.

St. Dymphna, through your glorious martyrdom
for the love of Christ,
help me to be loyal to my faith and my God
as long as I live.
And when my hour of death comes,
stand at my side and pray for me
that I may at last merit
the eternal crown of glory in God’s Kingdom.

Good St. Dymphna,
I beg you to recommend my request to Mary,
the Health of the Sick,
and Comforter of the Afflicted,
that both of you may present it to Jesus,
the Divine Physician.

O God, You gave St. Dymphna to Your Church
as a model of all virtues,
especially holy purity,
and willed that she should seal her faith
with her innocent blood
and perform numerous miracles.
Grant that we who honor her as patroness
of those afflicted with nervous and mental illness
may continue to enjoy her powerful intercession
and protection and attain eternal life.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
