Novena Prayers to Our Lady of Lourdes

novenaAre you, or someone you dearly love trying to cope with an illness? Have you often said prayers on behalf of your friend or relative to ask the Saints, Angels, God, Jesus or the Holy Mother to intercede and help heal the patient? It’s hard to live with any kind of illness, but having to see a loved one suffering is also very harrowing. Have you tried saying a Novena over nine days for someone who’s in pain or ill? It may bring them strength and much comfort…..

What is a Novena?

In the Roman Catholic tradition, a novena is a series of prayers which are said over the course of nine days. The goal of going through a novena is to ask for grace, and to deepen one’s spiritual connection with God. Although the practice of the novena originated in the Catholic community, similar prayers are also said in other Christian sects.

A novena may be said for oneself, usually as a request for assistance of some form or another, or on behalf of someone else. A classic example of a novena is a prayer asking for a sick relative to be healed. In devout communities, people may say novenas for strangers, or say “I’ll make a novena for you” upon hearing of someone else’s troubles.

We believe that saying a Novena to Our Lady of Lourdes is a lovely way to connect to the Holy Mother who is the Patron Saint of bodily ills, and it will help to bring comfort and solace to the patient.
