Novena to Saint Benedict

Glorious Saint Benedict, sublime model of virtue, pure vessel of God's grace! Behold me humbly kneeling at your feet.

I implore you in your loving kindness to pray for me before the throne of God.

To you I have recourse in the dangers that daily surround me.

Shield me against my selfishness and my indifference to God and to my neighbor.

Inspire me to imitate you in all things.

May your blessing be with me always, so that I may see and serve Christ in others and work for His kingdom.

Graciously obtain for me from God those favors and graces which I need so much in the trials, miseries and afflictions of life.

Your heart was always full of love, compassion and mercy toward those who were afflicted or troubled in any way.

You never dismissed without consolation and assistance anyone who had recourse to you.
I therefore invoke your powerful intercession, confident in the hope that you will hear my prayers and obtain for me the special grace and favor I earnestly implore.
{mention your petition}

Help me, great Saint Benedict, to live and die as a faithful child of God, to run in the sweetness of His loving will, and to attain the eternal happiness of heaven.
Amen.

PRAYER IN HONOR OF SAINT BENEDICT FOR A HAPPY DEATH

Once St. Gertrude reminded Saint Benedict who she had the Heavenly Grace to converse with, of his glorious death, thereupon the holy Patriarch gave her the following assurance : "All who invoke me, remembering the glorious death with which God honored me, shall be assisted by me at their death with such fidelity, that I will place myself where I see the enemy most disposed to attack them. Thus being fortified by my presence, they will escape the snares, which he lays for them and depart happily and peacefully to the enjoyment of the Eternal Beatitude.

O Holy Father, Blessed by God both in Grace and in name, who, whilst standing in prayer with Thy hands raised to Heaven, didst most happily yield Thy Angelic Spirit into the hands of Thy Creator; and hast promised zealously to defend against all the snares of the enemy, in the last struggle of death, those who should daily remind Thee of Thy glorious departure and Thy Heavenly joys; protect me, I beseech Thee, O glorious Father, this day and every day, by Thy Holy Blessing; that I may never be separated from our Blessed Lord, from the society of Thyself, and of all the Blessed. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
(300 days' indulgence. Pope Pius IX., May 14, 1861)
