Novena To St. Malachy of Armagh (October 25 – November 3)

Repeat the following Novena prayer everyday for 9 consecutive days.

Glorious Saint Malachy,
ardent yet gentle shepherd of God’s people,
we come before you seeking your intercession
and protection in this time of trial.

Malachy, angel of peace,
who brought those in conflict
to be reconciled in the name of Christ,
grant lasting peace
and reconciliation to our country.

Mighty pillar of the Church,
who banished error by the truth of your preaching,
obtain for each of us
the grace of sincere repentance and renewal
that we may serve the Lord in holiness all our days.

Most fatherly Archbishop of Armagh,
enkindle the hearts of bishops and priests
that, aided by your patronage and example,
they may labour to form a holy people,
strong in faith,
constant in prayer,
abounding in charity,
devoted to the Sacraments,
and loyal to the See of Peter.

O saint rich in mercy and compassion,
look upon all who are suffering or in need
and obtain for them support, healing and hope.

St Malachy, ablaze with heavenly fire,
be a light to guide us
on our pilgrim way to the Kingdom of Heaven.
There may we be united with you
in singing the praises of God
for ever and ever.

Amen.
