Catholic Prayer: Novena to St. Francis Xavier - The Novena of Grace

Description:

This novena prayer, although short is sufficient. It would be better of course to add, if time permits, three Hail Marys or say five times the Our Father, Haily Mary and Glory be to the Father, or to use some of the many well-loved novena prayers from other sources. Remember that prayers must be said with the lips in order to gain the indulgences. This novena begins on November 24 and ends on December 3.

Prayer:

O Blessed St. Francis Xavier, who spent yourself for the spread of God's Kingdom, we pray you most fervently to remember all those Missioners now laboring to carry on your work. Pray, we beseech you, that the harvest may be great and that many generous young laborers may follow you in your quest for souls. For Jesus' sake. Amen.

Holy Spirit, spirit of truth, come into our hearts; shed the brightness of your light on all nations, that they may be one in faith and pleasing to You.
