Novena to Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos CSsR Started Yesterday

I'm so sorry I failed to post this notice yesterday.

From Mary Jane:

His Feast Day is October 5th.

Divine Physician,
You infused Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos
with the gift of Your healing.
By the help of his prayers,
sustain in me the grace to know Your will
and the strength to overcome my afflictions.
For love of You, make me whole.
May I learn from the example of Father Seelos
and gain comfort from his patient endurance.
Amen. (Mention your intentions here)

Litany of Blessed Francis Seelos:

Lord, have mercy on us!

Christ, have mercy on us!

Lord, have mercy on us!

Christ, hear us!

Christ, graciously hear us!

Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos, pray for us

Francis, pattern of cheerfulness, pray for us

Francis, lover of labors, pray for us

Francis, model of confessors, pray for us

Francis, gentle refuge of penitents, pray for us

Francis, example to seminarians, pray for us

Francis, master of poverty, pray for us

Francis, pillar of peacefulness, pray for us

Francis, comfort of the sick, pray for us

Francis, companion to the dying, pray for us

Francis, paragon of holiness, pray for us


O God, who made your priest, Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos, outstanding in love, that he might proclaim the mysteries of redemption, and comfort those in affliction, grant, by his intercession, that we may work zealously for your glory and for the salvation of all. Amen.

For more information go to: Blessed Seelos Center

Note: I finished this Novena which I had been praying for someone, last week. My friend Dottie gave me the Novena booklet. I highly recommend you obtaining it because it is filled with testimonials of Father Seelos' life and holiness as well as prayers.

Thank you. I have been praying sort of free style, and had hoped to find a more formal prayer . Thank you I will come everyday for the next 8 days in hope of a miracle for my daughter to be able to avoid surgery for ulcerative colitis.

Thank you for making this. I have been praying sort of free stlye and hoped to find something more formal. I will be here for the next 8 days to, to pray for the Beatification of Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos. And to seek his intersession for Elizabeth to be cured from IBD and avoid surgery. If it be Gods will for her to have her colon removed then so be it.....but I will continue to pray for the miracle, and ask everyone I know to help as well. Please join me in theses intentions

Patty, this was an older post. But please continue to pray the Novena for your daughter and also start it 9 days closer to Bl. Seelos' Feast Day of October 5th. I will pray for Elizabeth too. BTW, have you contacted the Seelos Center in New Orleans to leave your prayer request?
