July 5 - 13.
V. In the Name (✠) of the Father... R. Amen.
Prayer of Saint Bonaventure.
V. Pierce, o most sweet Lord Jesus,
R. My inmost soul with the most joyous and healthful
wound of Thy love, * and with true calm and most holy
apostolic charity, * that my soul may ever languish and
melt with entire love and longing for Thee, * may yearn
for Thee and Thy courts, * may long to be dissolved and
to be with Thee.
V. Grant that my soul may hunger after Thee, the Bread of
R. The refreshment of holy souls, * our daily and super
substantial bread, * having all sweetness and savor *
and every delightful taste.
V. May my heart ever hunger after and feed upon Thee Whom
the angels desire to look upon,
R. And may my inmost soul be filled with sweetness of
Thy savor; * may it ever thirst for Thee, the fountain of
life, * the torrent of pleasure, * the fullness of the house
of God;
V. May it ever compass Thee,
R. Seek Thee, * find Thee, * run to Thee, * come up to Thee,
* meditate on Thee, * speak of Thee, * and do all for the
praise and glory of Thy Name;
V. With humility and discretion;
R. With love and delight, * with ease and affection, * with
perseverance to the end; * and be Thou alone ever my
hope, * my entire confidence, my riches, * my delight,
my pleasure, * my joy, my rest and tranquility, * my
peace, my sweetness, my food, * my refreshment, my
refuge, my help, * my wisdom, my portion, * my
possession, my treasure; * in Whom may my mind and
my heart * be ever fixed and firm and rooted immovably.
* Amen.
Novena Prayer to Saint Bonaventure.
V. O Glorious St. Bonaventure, Son of St. Francis, Cardinal,
Bishop and Doctor of the Church.
R. Thou chose a life that embraced mortification and great
humiliation. * Thou made thy life a continuous prayer *
and spent hours meditating upon the wounds of Christ.
* Thou chose to serve those who were rejected and
sick, * even risking thy own good health.
V. By thy merits, intercede for us that we may have a
sincere and humble heart.
R. Pray for us Oh St. Bonaventure, * that we may
never lose sight of Our Lord’s Precious Wounds *
and thus walk on His narrow and straight path
towards eternal salvation.
V. St. Bonaventure, thou wert known to say ‘One should
carefully beware of decreasing, even in the slightest, the
honor that is due to Mary.’
R. May we strive as thou didst * to love our Blessed
Mother * and carry true devotion to her * and
consecration to her Immaculate Heart * to all the
world, * that God may grant us His grace, mercy
and peace.
V. We beg of thee to place our petitions
(Pause and state your intentions)
V. In the loving hands of our Blessed Mother.
R. For we know they will be warmly received by her
Son, * Christ our King. * Amen.
V. Hail Mary... R. Holy Mary...
V. In the Name (✠) of the Father... R. Amen.
