Novena Prayer to Saint Gianna

2012 marks the 50th anniversary of her death
Special Novena - April 19-28
Lord God,
Through your Son Jesus Christ
You have destroyed death
And have made us the People of Life.

We thank you for the example of the saints
Whose lives reflect your own holiness
And the profound dignity of human life.

Thank you in particular for the example
of Saint Gianna Beretta Molla.
She is truly a saint for our times,
Whom you called from this world just 50 years ago.
Thank you for her example of being a loving wife,
A devoted mother, a caring physician, and a
woman of Catholic action.

Thank you for the crowning act of her life,
By which she sacrificed her life for that of her child.
May her example inspire all of us
To lay down our lives for one another,
Especially for our unborn brothers and sisters,
And hence to both discover and proclaim
The very meaning of love.

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
