Day 3 - Saint Francis of Assisi Novena:
It's the third day of the Saint Francis Novena!
Saint Francis was devoted just as much to bringing peace into the world as he was to the poor.
Today, let's pray that we may all be instruments of peace -- in our families, communities and countries. Let's pray for St. Francis' intercession in regards to all unresolved issues.
Here are the novena prayers for today:
Holy Saint Francis, through your kind intercession we seek holiness above all things. We seek the faith, hope and love that allowed you to joyfully renounce the pleasures of earthly life and to radically follow our Lord Jesus Christ.
Pray for us that we enjoy the privilege of suffering with and for the poor in the example of Jesus. Help us to be always grateful for the all blessings we have received and the strength to overcome our most pressing concerns, especially...
(Mention your intentions here)
Glorious St. Francis, you have acted as a peacemaker even in the face of extreme physical danger. Through your prayers, may we also be imbued with a desire to find peaceful resolutions to the problems that plague us, even in the most trying of times. As an offering to our Almighty Father, I resolve to forgive all the wrongs I have suffered from my fellow men.
St. Francis, help us in praying for the grace to truly repent for our sins and actively seek reconciliation with God. May the blessings we obtain through your intercession deepen our faith, and inspire us to store treasures in Heaven, where we hope to spend eternity with the Almighty Father.
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.
St. Francis of Assisi, Pray for us!
