Novena to St Frances Xavier Cabrini

4th - 12th November 2010

You are invited to join the Missionary Sisiters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in this novena to pray for the needs of migrants worldwide as well as for your own intentions.



O Mother Cabrini,
Woman after God's own heart,
Universal Patroness of Migrants,
for whom this world, too small a world,
held lands for boundless work,
helping migrants to find
true integration into new cultures,
'doing all things in God who strengthens us',
be for me now, with these your myriads of migrants,
my voice, my guardian, my advocate, my mother.

Bring the Good News of the Gospel to all humanity;
proclaim the love and mercy of God;
breathe life, truth and hope,
justice, peace and communion,
wheresoever these values are wanting.

Inspire me with your love of the Heart of Jesus;
then, at my end, guide this my migrant soul
and bring me safe to God.

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.
