Novena to Saint Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows, February 19-27

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

Come to my aid, O God. O Lord, make haste to help me. 

Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of all good gifts, I come before Thee to honor Thee in Thy Saints and to ask their help in my many needs Thou hast promised those who ask, would receive, those who seek, would find, those who knock, would have doors opened to them. Hear the prayers of Thy Church, grant my requests, and pardon my sins. Amen. 
Prayer to St. Gabriel 
O Good Saint Gabriel, God inspired thee to see the Passion of Jesus as it was reflected in the Heart of Mary, His mother. By her side, thou didst stand beneath the Cross of Jesus, gazing on Him as she did and learning the meaning of love. O St. Gabriel, we wish, like thee, to grow in love for God and all His faithful. Remember us in our trials; remember especially those who are young. 

(Here mention your request) 

Support us by thy prayers all our days. And when this life is done, may we join thee in Heaven in the joyful company of Jesus and Mary. We ask for the grace of a happy death. Amen. 

O St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows, obtain for our young people the grace of following Jesus with generosity. 

May they place the gospel at the very heart of their lives. May they desire to love God wholeheartedly as thou didst. May they especially obtain a true devotion to the Immaculate and Sorrowful Heart of Mary, and, following thy example may we all increase in grace; pray for us that we will be Saints, so we will know the peace and joy of eternal life in Heaven. Amen.
