Novena to Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha
Kateri, favored child and Lily of the Mohawks, I come to seek your
intercession in my present need: for the physical and spiritual welfare of Ginnie
I admire the virtues which adorned your soul: love of God and neighbor,
humility, obedience, patience, purity and the spirit of sacrifice. Help me to
imitate your example in my state of life. Through the goodness and mercy of God,
Who has blessed you with so many graces which led you to the true faith and to a
high degree of holiness, pray to God for me and help me.
Obtain for me a very fervent devotion to the Holy Eucharist so that I may
love Holy Mass as you did and receive Holy Communion as often as I can. Teach me
also to be devoted to my crucified Savior as you were, that I may cheerfully
bear my daily crosses for love of Him Who suffered so much for love of me. Most
of all I beg you to pray for me that I may avoid sin, lead a holy life and
save my soul. Amen.
In thanksgiving to God for the graces bestowed upon Kateri:
one Our Father,
one Hail Mary
and three Glory Be's.
Kateri, Lily of the Mohawks, pray for me.
