Novena to Bl. Alphonse Marie – Before Her Feastday
Dear Friends of Blessed Alphonse Marie, From August 31, 2022 to September 8, 2022,
we invite you to pray the Novena to Bl. Alphonse Marie, Virgin, Mystic, and Foundress.
On September 9, 2022, the day of her Feastday, Holy Mass will be celebrated at 6:30 p.m. in the Mercy Brothers’ Church, in Bratislava, Slovakia. It will be offered for your intentions which you can send to us before or during the Novena – HERE
August 31stwe begin the Novena prior to the Feastday of Blessed Alphonse Marie. During these days we will immerse ourselves in her thoughts as in a photo album. In it we will discover a soul mate mirroring the richness of her life. She will accompany us day by day that we become able to repeat with her:
“In everything, always, and everywhere I see God, God Himself.”
What does she expect from us? Only an open and listening heart, willing to immerse ourselves into God’s presence and accept the graces our Lord prepared for us.
The thoughts are excerpted from her prayers and exhortations, in which she left for us as a heritage of her life, which she lived in deep union with God.
