This will be the first time I ever pray the St. Anne Novena.
In case you’re wondering, I’m offering up my uncertain future and asking for clarity in discerning my vocation. If you’re in the same boat as me, I hope you can join in with me in praying this.
St. Anne Novena, Day One
Great Saint Anne, engrave indelibly on my heart and in my mind the words that have reclaimed and sanctified so many sinners:
“What shall it profit a man to gain the whole world if he lose his own soul?” May this be the principal fruit of these prayers by which I will strive to honor you during this novena.
At your feet renew my resolution to invoke you daily, not only for the success of my temporal affairs and to be preserved from sickness and suffering, but above all, that I may be preserved from all sin, that I may gain eternal salvation and that I will receive the special grace of…
(State your intention here.)
O most powerful Saint Anne, do not let me lose my soul, but obtain for me the grace of heaven, there with you, your blessed spouse, and your glorious daughter, to sing the praise of the Most Holy and Adorable Trinity forever and ever.
Pray for us, Saint Anne!
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
