Repeat the following Novena prayers every day for 9 consecutive days.
We thank you for the witness of Your Servant,
Saint Paul VI, who served You
and the Church as Universal Pastor in difficult times.
As a pilgrim among pilgrims
he sought to reveal the beauty and joy of the Gospel
to the men and women of his time,
choosing the way of gentleness and forbearance.
As Shepherd of the flock
he sought to proclaim the truth in a time of great confusion
in imitation of his patron the Apostle to the Gentiles.
As Servant he proclaimed the Gospel of Life
and in doing so bore the cross of suffering and isolation
in union with Your Crucified Son
becoming a Prophet in the midst of the growing culture of death.
We thank You for raising Your Servant to be numbered among the Saints.
May his example of faith,
courage and patient endurance
inspire us in our daily living of the Gospel
and in our witness to Jesus Christ.
May we too be Prophets of life,
respecting, protecting and cherishing the gift of life,
most especially in its most vulnerable moments.
May we too be Your missionaries at this time,
seeking to transform the hearts of all men and women
through the joy we find in Christ.
Hear our prayers, most Merciful Father,
and grant us through the intercession of Saint Paul
the graces we now ask of You,
Through Christ our Lord.
Say 1 Our Father…
Say 1 Hail Mary… and
Say 1 Glory Be…
Blessed Paul VI,
Pray for him.
