PRAYER TO ASK FOR A SPECIAL FAVOR

God our Father,
by the grace of the Holy Spirit,
you called St. Eugene de Mazenod
to gather priests and brothers
as Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate
to announce the Gospel
especially among the poor and neglected.
May we ourselves be inflamed with his zeal
for announcing the Gospel of Jesus Christ our Savior
and receive through his intercession
the special graces of vocations
to the Oblate way of life,
and for those we ask for at this time.

[Mention your intention(s) here…]

Say 1 Our Father…

Say 1 Hail Mary…

Say 1 Glory Be…

St. Eugene de Mazenod,
pray for us.

NOVENA PRAYERS TO SAINT EUGENE

St. Eugene,
Patron Saint of Dysfunctional Families,
come to the aid of all families who suffer brokenness,

You know well these difficulties and trials

seek your intercession to discern more clearly
how the Light of Jesus Christ
can help them in the midst of their darkness and despair.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

who calls us to holiness and to Mission.

and share the Good News of salvation with all peoples.
For this we dedicate ourselves, through Christ our Lord.
