Mother Cabrini Novena Prayer

Feast Day November 13, 2015

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, thank you for the gift of life, thank you for this day, and thank you for Your servant, Saint Francesca Cabrini. As we prepare for Mother Cabrini’s Feast Day, help us to better understand our role with the Cabrini charism and in the mission.
Fill us, O Lord, with the fire of Your heart that our minds and hearts may be open to Your will for us today and every day. Root in us, her faith, that we may represent the charism of Mother Cabrini to everyone we meet this day. Renew us that we may live as she lived, faithful to You and open to Your every prompting.
Through the intercession of St. Frances X. Cabrini, we ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Day 5 November 9: Educator of the Heart

When Mother Cabrini educated others, she saw them as a whole person: body and soul. With this vision, she educated a way of life not just knowledge.
As Mother Mary listened with her heart, Mother Cabrini taught that to listen and to live with one’s heart is to live with meaning and passion

” Pray…that you may comprehend the mystery of love hidden in the Incarnation of a God… Give Him all…without reserve.” ~ Mother Cabrini

Through St. Cabrini’s intercession, may we learn how to listen to our hearts and gain an international vision of solidarity and brotherhood in thinking globally and acting locally. We pray that we may be agents of transformation and critical thinkers, capable of having an impact on culture, politics, and economics as we are called.

Novena Prayer to St. Frances Cabrini

Saint Frances Cabrini – woman of God, woman of spirit and vision. You crossed the oceans many times to bring the love of Christ to many nations. You offered the people you met the gift of life and love by responding to their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs in practical and creative ways. Against great odds you achieved what was thought to be impossible. Inspired by your sense of justice, your love and compassion l come to you now to intercede for me through the Heart of Jesus.

(Pause …… name petition)

Watch over me this day and those I love. Strengthen me in my weakness, sustain me in my struggles and bring me a deep and lasting peace and make me whole again. May I always recognize Christ in the people I meet and respond to them with respect and sensitivity as you did. I ask this through our one God, for your God is my God, now and forever. Amen.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
