Our pastor has asked the parish to participate in a mini-novena to lead up to the Assumption. As Our Lady of the Assumption is the patroness of our diocese, and we are in a jubilee year, it’s a big celebration around here.
My intention for this novena will be for the advancement of Catholic education in our diocese. If you’ve been around here long, you’ll know it is an issue near to my heart.
But here’s the Easy Novena that Father has asked us to say:
Three Hail Mary’s, daily.
Prayer doesn’t have to be fancy to be effective. Sincerity is what matters.
