Fourteen Holy Helpers novena July 30- Aug 7

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.

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.

O Faithful servants of God and powerful protectors of man, Holy Helpers!
Since Our Lord appointed thee the heavenly advocates for our needs on earth,
I confidently turn to thee for help in my distress.
Countless numbers praise thee 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 thee, and implore thee not to refuse me thy aid.

Mention your intentions…..

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