When needing an answer to prayers quickly and without delay, Mother Teresa of Calcutta famously prayed a “Flying” novena. This is a simple and quick way to pray a ‘novena’ when you don’t have the full nine days!

How do you pray this novena? Well, Mother Teresa would pray the Memorare prayer nine times in a row rather than praying it once a day for 9 days. Her religious sisters, the Missionaries of Charity, continue this practice today.

Of course, you can pray it either way.
