Event Description

The Fourteen Holy Helpers are a group of early martyrs who have been collectively invoked since the 14th century in response to the Black Plague which devastated Europe.  It seems very appropriate to ask for their help during this current pandemic and political upheaval throughout the world.

They are:  Ss. George, Blaise, Pantaleon, Vitus, Erasmus (Elmo), Christopher, Giles, Cyriacus, Achatius, Dionysius (Denis), Eustace, Catherine of Alexandria, Margaret and Barbara.  In the 16th century, Pope Nicholas V attached certain indulgences to their devotion. 

Sadly, since the "reforms" they aren't as well known or invoked as they should be. We would like to remedy that.

Their individual feast days are throughout the year, but their collective feast day is August 8.

O Faithful servants of God and powerful protectors of man, Holy Helpers! Since Our Lord appointed you the heavenly advocates for our needs on earth, I confidently turn to you for help in my distress. Countless numbers praise you for aiding them with counsel in doubt, with consolation in anxiety, with health in illness, with safety in danger, with delivery from prison, and with help and assistance in all tribulations. Therefore I, too, have recourse to you, and implore you not to refuse me your aid.

Give thanks to God for me for all the graces He grants me during this time, for I ascribe them to your great merits and powerful intercession. I thank you all together, and each one in particular, for your interest in my favor before the throne of God. I commend myself to your continued protection, that I may one day be united with you in heaven, there to thank the Giver of all good things and to praise Him for all eternity. Amen.

Intention: For the needs, spiritual and temporal, of every Crusader and their families during this tumultuous time.
