Novena for May


Feast Day: May 20


Patron of those suffering with lung diseases, advertisers, pugilists, weavers, wool merchants

Invoked : for help in giving up smoking, against hemorrhages, hoarseness, tuberculosis

An immensely popular Franciscan preacher, Bernardine vowed to preach in every part of Italy. Thoroughly entertaining to common people, he would speak in the open air for four hours at a time. Because he often strained his voice, he suffered from hoarseness, like patients with pulmonary problems. A master communicator, he designed the IHS visual emblem of Christ.

Novena to Saint Bernardine of Siena

You gave Saint Bernardine a special love
for the holy name of Jesus.
By the help of his prayers,
may we always be alive with the spirit of Your love.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.  (MENTION YOUR REQUEST HERE).
