From the Institute-- Novena for Archbishop Burke

Email from the Institute:

Dear Friends-

 

 

Happy New Year!

 

What better way to start a New Year than to offer a nine day novena for our beloved Archbishop Raymond L. Burke?

 

Good Catholics in St. Louis and around the world admire and appreciate the example and leadership of His Grace. As we enter into this election year, we have no doubt that once again Our Archbishop will courageously lead Catholics and all citizens of good conscience by his teachings and example, especially on issues of life and family.

 

Please join us then, in praying for his intentions the Irresistible Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, beginning on Monday January 7th and ending on Tuesday January 15th  

As you can see from the text provided specific intentions have been provided for each of the 3 parts of the daily prayers.

 

Special thanks to Father Karl Lenhardt (Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest) for his assistance.

 

Holy Mother Church grants to all the faithful for the prayer for their shepherds a partial indulgence (Enchiridion Indulgentiarum,25 N. 2). The faithful can receive this indulgence on each day of the novena.

 

For those of you who are residents of the St. Louis Metropolitan See area,(or as many of you who would like to attend) you are invited to conclude this Novena at the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Mass (on the 15th  ) at St. Francis De Sales Oratory at 6:30 PM Tuesday January 15th.

 

Please forward this to all of your friends, family and Catholic Bloggers, in St. Louis and around the world!

 

 

 

 

Irresistible Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus 

O my Jesus, Thou didst say: 
"Amen, I say to you, ask and you shall receive;
seek and you shall find; 
knock and it shall be opened unto you."
Hence I knock, I seek, and I ask for the grace of
 continued wisdom for our beloved Archbishop Raymond that he may share in the most profound way the intentions of your most Sacred Heart.

Our Father... Hail Mary... Glory be...

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in Thee!

O my Jesus, Thou didst say: 
"Amen, I say to you, whatever you ask 
of the Father in My name, 
He will give unto you.” 
Hence I ask the Father,
 in Thy name, for the grace of fortitude for our beloved Archbishop Raymond that he may continue to exercise his apostolic ministry according to the example of the Good Shepherd.

Our Father... Hail Mary... Glory be...

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in Thee!

O my Jesus, Thou didst say: 
"Amen, I say to you, heaven and earth shall pass away, 
but My words shall not pass away." 
Encouraged by Thy infallible words, 
I now ask for the grace of
 spiritual consolation for our beloved Archbishop Raymond that he may be comforted when he finds himself as faithful disciple of Thy Son under His Cross.

Our Father... Hail Mary... Glory be...

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in Thee!

Let us pray

Sacred Heart of Jesus, for Whom one thing alone is impossible, namely, not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us miserable sinners and grant us the grace we ask of Thee, through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Thy tender Mother and ours.

Hail Holy Queen
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. 
To thee we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us, 
And after this our exile, show unto us the blessed Fruit of they womb, Jesus.
O clememt. O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. 

Memorare 
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother! To thee I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
