Novena to St Claude La Colombiere

On Monday, 7 February 2011, we will be starting a Novena to St. Claude La Colombiere. St. Claude is one of the Patron Saints of the School of Evangelisation. He was the spiritual director of St. Margaret Mary and helped to bring the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus to the world. He is known as the faithful servant and perfect friend to the Sacred Heart. Please join us in saying this Novena when praying this Novena please include the intentions of the School in your prayers. Your support is greatly appreciated! God bless!!!!
NOVENA to Saint Claude La Colombiere (1641-1682) Feast Day is February 15th. O divine Jesus, you said, 'Ask and you shall receive; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you'. You promised to bestow abundant blessings on all the undertakings of those who honour your Sacred Heart. Hear our humble, confident and incessant prayers, and grant us the grace we ask of your infinite mercy in this novena. We ask it through the intercession of St Claude La Colombiere, whom you have honoured with the title 'faithful servant and perfect friend', and who had such filial, unbounded and unwearied confidence in you. O St Claude, most ardent apostle of the divine heart of Jesus, deign to intercede for me with this divine heart, that I may obtain the grace I ask for in this novena. Amen Our Father...Hail Mary...Glory be... Pray for us, St Claude, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Let Us Pray O Lord Jesus Christ, you deigned to make St Claude the faithful servant and wonderful lover of your Sacred Heart. Grant us, through his intercession, the grace to imitate the virtues of this divine heart, and be inflame by its love. We ask you this, you who lives and reigns with God the Father and the Holy Spirit forever and ever. Amen.
Prayer of St Margaret Mary O blessed Father Claude La Colombiere, I take you for my intercessor before the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ. Obtain for me from His goodness the grace not to resist the designs he has on my soul, and to make me a more perfect imitator of the virtues of His divine heart.
