Novena to Saint Maria Goretti 2017 | Day 4

Saint Maria Goretti

June 30th

Today we pray for chastity. It's something we are all called to practice, regardless of our vocation. The most basic definition of chastity is the virtue of saving sex for marriage and remaining open to life within marriage. The Catechism states that chastity allows us to imitate Jesus Christ in selfless love in everything we do.

St. Maria Goretti Novena Prayers - Day 4

St. Maria Goretti, beautiful model of chastity, you guarded your virginity with such fervor. Even at the age of 11, you knew the value of the virtue of chastity. Pray that we practicing chastity in our own lives. Through your intercession, help us to conduct ourselves with modesty and humility, so as to make our desires subservient to reason and selflessly serve others in imitation of Christ our Lord.

Please pray also for (mention your intentions here). Amen.

O God, author of innocence and chastity, who bestowed the grace of martyrdom on your handmaid, the Virgin Saint Maria Goretti, in her youth, grant, we pray, through her intercession, that, as you gave her a crown for her steadfastness, so we too may be firm in obeying your commandments. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, who reigns with you, and with the Holy Spirit, one God for ever. Amen.
