Saint Martin de Porres' Novena
Feast Day: November 3
Recite the following for 9 consecutive days
Saint Martin de Porres, your concern and charity embraced not only your needy brethren, but also the animals of the field. You were a splendid example of charity; we thank and praise you.
Now from heaven above, hear the requests of your needy brethren:
(Share your request).
By modeling our lives after yours and imitating your virtues, may we live content knowing that God has looked favorably upon us. Help us to accept our burdens with strength and courage in order to follow in the footsteps of our Lord and the Blessed Mother Mary. Guide us in our struggles to reach the Kingdom of Heaven, through the intercession of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art Thou among women and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen. (Three times)
Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be; World without end. Amen.
