Saint Benedict novena March 12-20

Novena to Saint Benedict

O glorious St. Benedict, sublime model of all virtues, pure vessel of God’s grace!
Behold me, humbly kneeling at thy feet. I implore thy loving heart to pray for me before the throne of God.
To thee I have recourse in all the dangers which daily surround me.
Shield me against my enemies, inspire me to imitate thee in all things.
May thy blessing be with me always, so that I may shun whatever God forbids and avoid the occasions of sin.

Graciously obtain for me from God those favors and graces of which I stand so much in need,
in the trials, miseries and afflictions of life.
Thy heart was always so full of love, compassion, and mercy toward those who were afflicted or troubled in any way.
Thou didst never dismiss without consolation and assistance anyone who had recourse to thee.
I therefore invoke thy powerful intercession, in the confident hope that thou wilt hear my prayers
and obtain for me the special grace and favor I so earnestly implore
(mention it),
if it be for the greater glory of God and the welfare of my soul.

Help me, O great St. Benedict, to live and die as a faithful child of God,
to be ever submissive to His holy will, and to attain the eternal happiness of heaven. Amen.

    Dear Cindy,
    Now I’m confused…is it blad headed or bald headed as in futterlieb???
    I’ve never been able to get the AQ PM activated. I gave up trying long ago.
    I’m afraid our travels in Canada are over. Our Passports expired and Obama wants too much to renew them. Any rendezvous would have to be south of the 49th.
    Thanks for the kind words. You are in my prayers for continued good health.
    God bless.
    The bald futter.

    Dear futterlieb, it is indeed bald-headed….blad was a typo, teehee.
    I am quite sure you are very handsome and distinguished with your bald-head,
    but I grew up in Beautiful British Columbia with the mountains, lush greenery,
    and magestic trees.
    The dry Prairies are flat and….bald-headed, which is why we go home (to B.C.)
    most years for vacation and most importantly where there is daily Mass.
    I am soooo sorry to hear your travels to Canada are over.
    That darn Obamanation!

    Thank you for your prayers my dear friend.
    You and your family continue to be in mine.
    God bless you and your family.

    Cindy, Oh Cindy.
    Thank you for the kind words. I too miss B.C., but…
    Sorry to disillusion you, but besides bald, I am old, fat, and ugly. It serves to keep me humble, eh? If ya ever come south, God willing, we can meet. Then you’ll know.
    God bless
    The Old futter.

    Aww, dear Old futter,
    I am quite sure your lovely wife loves you just the way ya are….
    bald, old, fat and ugly, exceedingly humble, with a prayerful and loving heart! ha
    I went to google maps, and we are 2,462 km apart …sigh.
    So if we don’t meet in this world, God willing we will meet in the next.
    God bless you dear friend!
