In today’s world, it’s hard — and even dangerous in some situations — to be a follower of Jesus. In many ways, it’s even harder to be a faithful priest.
The next novena we will pray together will be for our priests: it’s the Novena to St. John Vianney!
Our priests need our prayers.
Think of any priests in your life — those who have brought you closer to Jesus, those who are struggling in some way, or those you just happen to know. Please join us in praying this novena for those priests.
Be sure to let them know you’re praying for them, and invite them to pray along with you.
St. John Vianney is known for overcoming many obstacles to become a priest and serve God and his parishioners. And he did so very selflessly.
Saint John Vianney is the patron saint of parish priests. His work as a confessor is one of his most remarkable accomplishments. In the summer months, he was known to spend up to 16 hours listening to confessions.
He became renowned for converting sinners with his gentle words.
We will start praying on Thursday, August 4th.
St. John Vianney is known for his intercessory prayers for priests, miracles and other impossible situations.
We hope you will join us in praying this novena!
