The Novena to St. Clare of Assisi
Let us begin, In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
O most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we praise your Holy Name and the wonders of grace you worked in your servant, St. Clare. Through her powerful intercession, grant us the favors we ask in this Novena, above all the grace to live and die as she did in your most holy love. Amen.
Seraphic St. Clare, whose virginal heart was great enough to love the whole world, take our petitions into your pure hands and present them to God. Pray for us that we may one day enter joyously before the throne of God. Let the light of your perfect purity consume the shadows of sin and corruption that darken the world. Intercede by your innocence for our youth. Safeguard the peace of our homes and the unity of our family. Plead with your chaste love for all in peril. Amen.
(Include your personal petitions here.)
Pray for us, St. Clare
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
We pray You, Lord, grant us your servants who celebrate the Feast of St. Clare, your Virgin, by her intercession, to be partakers of the joys of heaven and the coheirs with your only begotten Son, who being God, lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.
O glorious St. Clare! God has given you the power of working miracles continually, and the favor of answering prayer of those who invoke your assistance in misfortune, anxiety and distress; we beseech you, to obtain for us from Jesus, through Mary, His Blessed Mother, what we beg of you so fervently and hopefully, if it be for the greater honor of God and for the good of our souls. Amen.
In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
