Novena Prayer in Honor of St. Catherine of Siena

Heavenly Father, your glory is in your saints. We praise your glory in the life of the admirable St. Catherine of Siena, virgin and doctor of the Church. Her whole life was a noble sacrifice inspired by an ardent love of Jesus, your unblemished Lamb.

In troubled times she strenuously upheld the rights of His beloved spouse, The Church. Father, honor her merits and hear her prayers for each of us, and for our whole parish family dedicated to her. Help us to pass unscathed through the corruption of this world, and to remain unshakably faithful to the church in word, deed, and example.

Help us always to see in the Vicar of Christ an anchor in the storms of life, and a beacon of light to the harbor of your Love, in this dark night of your times and men’s souls. Grant also to each of us our special petition . . .

(State your own intentions)

We ask this through Jesus, your Son, in the bond of the Holy Spirit.

    • Hello Acy,
      Um, I don’t know if this will help. but there is a sister here, and she is doing a book and the effects of the cell phone on the brain…I was so over whelmed by her lecture that I did some research..I found a great lecture.….It was by another Christian community. TV has a very strong brain damaging effect on is making people depressed and the computer has a stronger effect. It shuts down the frontal lobe of the brain where reason and our relationship with Jesus is felt. It puts you in a trans like state and it makes the instinctual part of the brain turn on…fear, anxiety, and makes us receptive to hypnosis..or their media agenda…He might be suffering from that..though I had an Auntie who had terrible pain and it was not until late in her life that she found she was missing a disk in her neck. I hope that he finds the peace he is seeking ..I think many of us are suffering terrible though. I think it is so this World War III will not happen between the Muslims and the Christians..and also because of all the terrible sin…peace to you.
