Prayers & Novenas


For all of us in these times, here is a prayer from Padre Pio for protection that roots healing in the Eucharist and goes right down to our cells:

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Heavenly Father, I thank you for loving me. I thank you for sending your Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, to the world to save and set me free.
I trust in your power and grace that sustain and restore me.
Loving Father, touch me now with your healing hands, for I believe that your will is for me to be well in mind, body, soul, and spirit.

Cover me with the most precious blood of your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ from the top of my head to the soles of my feet.
Cast anything that should not be in me.
Root out any unhealthy and abnormal cells.
Open any blocked arteries or veins and rebuild and replenish any damaged areas.
Remove all inflammation and cleanse any infection by the power of Jesus’ precious blood.
Let the fire of your healing love pass through my entire body to heal and make new any diseased areas so that my body will function the way you created it to function.

Touch also my mind and my emotion, even the deepest recesses of my heart.
Saturate my entire being with your presence, love, joy, and peace and draw me ever closer to you every moment of my life.
And Father, fill me with the Holy Spirit and empower me to do your works so that my life will bring glory and honour to your holy name.
I ask this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.


Would we be counted among the doubters
hiding in the shadow cast by that cruel cross?
Or, when challenged, like Peter
openly deny you?

There are times, Lord when doubts assail
and the distance between us seems to increase.
There are times, Lord when sin has its hold,
like a barrier between us that will not move.

Who is there we can turn to when we feel so overwhelmed?
Who can roll away the stone and reveal the empty tomb?
No-one but you, Jesus,
no-one but you!
