Saint John Vianney Novena 2016 | Day 7

St. John Vianney

August 10, 2016

Saint John Vianney was passionate about speaking out against sin, and equally as passionate about bringing his parishioners into the confessional so that they could be forgiven. He believed the worst crime people could commit would be to receive the Eucharist in vain. He used to say that it was a miracle that people who did this were not struck dead on the spot. Today, we pray for the desire to seek reconciliation with God so that we may be worthy to receive the Eucharist.

Novena Prayer, Day Seven:

Saint John Vianney, in life you have shown your veneration of the Blessed Sacrament. To this end you spent long hours in the confessional to help the faithful become worthy to receive the holy sacraments.

Obtain for me the fervent desire to always remain worthy to receive the holy sacraments that I may also one day be rewarded with God’s favor, and spend life in His kingdom with all the saints for all eternity.

Believing in the power of your kind intercession, I humbly ask you to pray for me and the special intention I am hoping God will grant me through this novena. (here mention your special intention)

St. John Vianney, Priest of Ars, pray for our priests, and pray for us. Amen.

Prayer in Honor of St. John Vianney

Almighty and merciful God, who made the Priest Saint John Vianney wonderful in his pastoral zeal, grant, we pray, that through his intercession and example we may in charity win brothers and sisters for Christ and attain with them eternal glory. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
