Novena in honor of the holy Angels.
(FOR THE ONLY GLORY OF GOD)
Tomorrow (Louis's note: September 20) begins the NEUVAINE in honor of St Michael the Archangel, the head of the heavenly militia.
This word NEUVAINE, which is so commonly used, is perhaps not as generally known as to its origin.
The word NEUVAINE (nine days) was born of devotion to the Nine choirs of the Angels, and it is this devotion which presided over the institution of these excellent practices of piety spread among the faithful and recognized for being so great efficiency.
The NEUVAINE we place here is highly recommended. It can be done in preparation for the feast of the Holy Guardian Angel. In that case, it should start on 23 September. Those who do not intend to do this Novena will be able to recite for this nineteenth day only one or the other of the following prayers:
GENERAL INTENTIONS OF THE NEUVAINE
Contrition for past sins. - Recognition for favors received. - New graces to be obtained. Above all, the reign and glory of God.
PRAYER OF THE NEUVAINE
9 Pater, 9 Ave, 9 Gloria Patri, in honor of the nine Choruses of the Angels, or the following prayer: or the Angelic Rosary (to be continued)
Saint Michael, Saint Raphael, Saint Gabriel, Guardian Angel, all of you Angels, Archangels, Thrones, Dominions, Principalities, Powers, Virtues, Cherubims and Seraphims, get me the grace I need from the Holy Trinity the); I conjure you by the BLOOD, the passion and death of Jesus, to whose merits you owe your eternal happiness.
So be it.
Mary Immaculate, Queen of the Angels, pray for us who have recourse to you. So be it.
On the fifth day of the novena, receive Holy Communion in honor of the POWERS.
"I have seen," says the pious Boudon, "the marvels of grace obtained by such novenas: persons delivered from the most terrible temptations, the machinations of hell ruined and destroyed, & c.http://www.fisheaters.com/forums/index.php?topic=3461805.30
