Dear Community Members
and Friends of Lifesong,

 

A Special Kind Of Prayer

 

This Prayer was posted in preparation for the March 22-28 07 Pilgrimage to Lourdes, ... a special kind of prayer.  It is called a Novena and is very Powerful when prayed fervently. 

 

As we walk together along our Spiritual Journey one observes that many people are very familiar with certain devotions,  prayers and a multitude of rich and Precious Traditions in our Catholic Church.  As a teacher I have always been equally aware of the one individual who may not have been exposed to that which others take for granted.   For this reason you will notice that I may tend to touch upon a brief background or definition of the subject at hand.

 

A Novena is a nine-day period of private or public prayer to obtain special graces, to implore special favors, or to make special petitions.  (Novena is derived from the Latin word "novem", meaning nine.) As the definition suggests, the Novena has always had more of a sense of urgency and neediness. 

 

The Novena may be prayed at any time of the year.  When there is a Feast Day connected with the Novena such as that of Our Lady of Lourdes, the Novena begins 9 days before the Feast (Feb 3) and ends on that Feast Day which is on February 10th. 

 

I invite you all to join our Special Novena this year in preperation for our European Pilgrimage to this humble and magnificent Grotto in France.  I'm sending you this marvelous prayer well in advance so that you may read it over and prepare yourself personally for embarking upon this spiritual adventure which will be so much more powerful as we join together in Mind and Soul, placing our petitions at the feet of Our Lady of Lourdes. 

 

As we approach the first day of the Novena I will send you more about this powerful prayer and offer suggestions for you to enhance its effectiveness in the eyes of Heavenly Father.  

 

Begin now to think deeply about what you desire to ask Our Lady of Lourdes as she desires for all to be healed. May Jesus touch you deeply with His Healing Hand and may it be the Will of Heavenly Father that you receive the Miracle for which you pray. 

 

Love and Healing Prayer,

Lorraine of Jesus (prayer hermit
