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.
