DAY 6 - DOUBLE NOVENA for Litany Run

Just finished my final 5mi training run. Off to Orange County and St. Michael's Abbey tonight to pray. Offering my mass for all of you at noon today. Oremus pro invicem.


Day 6:

Novena of the Miraculous Medal through the intercession of Our Lady:

O Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of Our Lord Jesus and our Mother, penetrated with the most lively confidence in your all-powerful and never-failing intercession,  manifested so often through the Miraculous Medal, we your loving and trustful children implore you to obtain for us the graces and favors we ask during this novena, if they be beneficial to our immortal souls, and the souls for whom we pray.  
(State your intention here...)  You know, O Mary, how often our souls have been the sanctuaries of your Son who hates iniquity.  Obtain for us then a deep hatred of sin and that purity of heart which will attach us to God alone, so that our every thought, word and deed  may tend to His greater glory. Obtain for us also a spirit of prayer and self-denial that we may recover by penance what we have lost by sin and at length attain to that blessed abode where you are the Queen of angels and of men.

Novena for Any Necessity through the intercession of St. Joseph the Worker:

O Lord, reprove me not in your anger,
Nor chastise me in your wrath. 
Merciful Father, 
you know my sins and disobedience, 
my weakness and ingratitude which have deserved punishment. 
Yet, you are ever ready to forgive, 
and gracious to all in trouble. 
In Christ's name, 
come quickly to help me. 

Action: Hold back today the harsh word; banish the unkind thought.
