Prayer Request from the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest
From the ICRSP:
The Institute’s Seminary in Gricigliano, Italy is overflowing with seminarians. This is a great joy to our founders, Msgr. Gilles Wach and Canon Philippe Mora, but also a source of inquietude as there are not enough rooms for all the seminarians.
Msgr. Wach has asked that we pray a novena to Saint Joseph that the seminary will be able to lodge the new seminarians who will enter this fall. Many times in the past, the Institute has experienced the powerful intercession and paternal care of our Lord’s foster father and so it is nature for us to turn to him in our need.
Please join us in this novena which you may pray at home as a family or individually.
Prayer of St. Francis de Sales to St. Joseph
Glorious St. Joseph, spouse of Mary, grant us thy paternal protection, we beseech thee by the Heart of Jesus Christ.
Oh thou, whose power extends to all our necessities and can render possible for us the most impossible things, open thy fatherly eyes to the needs of thy children.
In the trouble and distress which afflicts us, we confidently have recourse to thee. Deign to take under your charitable charge this important and difficult matter, cause of our worries. Make its happy outcome be for God's glory and for the good of his devoted servants.
