Novena to Saint Pio of Pietrelcina (Feast: September 23)

Updated: 7 days ago



FIRST DAY


Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, who bore on your body the signs of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ, you took the Cross to the ends of the world while enduring the physical and moral sufferings that scourged your body in a continuous martyrdom. We beg you to pray to God for us, that each of us may accept the crosses of our lives, great and small, so that everyone may turn their own suffering into a safe bond that binds us to eternal life.


Padre Pio, pray for us!

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

SECOND DAY


Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, who are now with Our Lord Jesus, you who knew how to resist the temptations, blows and oppression of the evil one who sought to induce thee to abandon the path of holiness, we implore you to pray to God for us so that, with your help and the help of all the angels and saints, we may find the strength to turn away from sin and to persevere in the faith till the day of our death.


Padre Pio, pray for us!

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

THIRD DAY


Most virtuous Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, you who really love Our Lady, from whom you received daily graces and consolations: we implore you to pray to the Blessed Mother for us while placing in her hands our sins and faithless prayers so that, as happened at Cana in Galilee, her Son may heed His Mother and have our names written in the Book of Life.


Padre Pio, pray for us!

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

FOURTH DAY


Most chaste Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, who so loved and taught us to love the Holy Guardian Angel that served you as companion, guide, defender and messenger, to you the angels bring the prayers of your spiritual children. Intercede with God for us so that we too may learn to speak with our Guardian Angel, so we may obey him at all times, as he is the living light of God, the one who delivers us from the misfortune of falling into sin. Our Angel is always ready to teach us the right path and dissuade us from doing evil.


Padre Pio, pray for us!

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.
