The Sign of the Cross In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.
This is the powerful novena to Saint Francis Xavier which, in times past, was solemnly celebrated on the above dates throughout the entire Church. This great Jesuit Saint is the Exemplar of our Crusade, and in March of every year we beg for his help in obtaining from God a favorable response to a particular request.
This is the prototype of all novenas. It commemorates the nine days between the Ascension of Our Lord and the descent of the Holy Ghost on the first Pentecost Sunday.
Holy Mother Church dedicates the month of August to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. On August 15 we celebrate the Feast of the Assumption, and on August 22, the Feast of the Immaculate Heart.
It is our custom in Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel to recite the following prayers for our Holy Father at the end of each community Rosary. His Holiness, Pope Francis will need many and great graces to sustain him in his very difficult office.
