Catholic Prayer: Novena to St. Catherine of Siena
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 April 20 and ends on April 29.
O great St. Catherine of Siena, glory of the Dominican Order, who served the sick and suffering in time of plague and brought back the exiled popes from Avignon to Rome, pray for us that we may have some measure of your courage and self sacrifice. Amen
Blessed be the name of God!
500 days, when said piously upon hearing a blasphemy against God. S. Pen., Dec. 9, 1932.Prayer Source: All Day With God by Blanche Jennings Thompson
