Hall of Heroes
In this place I wish to honour those saints through whom I have received gifts from the Lord, and to encourage devotion to them.
Novena to St. Philomena—O faithful virgin and glorious martyr, Saint Philomena, who works so many miracles on behalf of the poor and sorrowing, have pity on me. Thou knowest the multitude and diversity of my needs. Behold me at thy feet, full of misery, but full of hope. I entreat thy charity, O great saint! Graciously hear me and obtain from God a favorable answer to the request which I now humbly lay before thee (make your request here). I am thoroughly convinced that through thy merits, through the scorn, the sufferings, the death thou didst endure, united to the merits of the passion and death of Jesus thy spouse, I shall obtain what I ask of thee and in the joy of my heart I will bless God, who is admirable in his saints. Amen.
This novena has done some great things in my life, and is incredibly powerful. As such, I wish to pass on the warning given to me when I first prayed it: it has rarely been known to fail, so be sure of what you ask.
Novena to St. Joseph—Oh Saint Joseph whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.
Oh Saint Joseph, assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power I may offer my Thanksgiving and Homage to the Loving of Fathers.
Oh Saint Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart.
Press Him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me, and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath.
Saint Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us.
St. Jude and St. Philomena worked together to help me out in a tough time of my life.
Prayer for lost causes— Most holy Apostle Saint Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered the beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of. Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone. Make use I implore you, of that particular privilege given to you, to bring visible and speedy help, where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolations and help of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly your request and that I may bless God with you and all the elect forever.
I promise, O blessed Saint Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.
”Before Google was, I was”. One of the busiest saints, being the patron of lost things and persons, St. Anthony has helped me recover some valuable objects that would otherwise still be missing.
Most loving protector, great St. Anthony, I hasten to thank you. Full of
appreciation and profound gratitude I acknowledge the favors you have secured
for me in reply to my prayers and those of our Franciscan missionaries.
Because you answered my petitions and all those the children of the missions
offered for my intentions, I rejoice in your power with God and your unfailing
goodness to your brothers in Christ. May you ever be honored and blessed, most
powerful wonder-worker of Padua! May your merits and favors remain an
unending hymn of praise to the most Holy Trinity, and to our blessed Lady, Queen
