19th October Saints Isaac Jogues

St. Isaac Jogues Novena

Holy Martyrs and patrons, protect this land which you have blessed by the shedding of your blood. Renew in these days our Catholic faith which you helped to establish in this new land. Bring all our fellow citizens to a knowledge and love of the truth. Make us zealous in the profession of our faith so that we may continue and perfect the work which you have begun with so much labor and suffering. Pray for our homes, our schools, our missions, for vocations, for the conversion of sinners, the return of those who have wandered from the fold, and the perseverance of all the Faithful. And foster a deeper and increasing unity among all Christians. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Isaac Jogues

Saint Isaac, you longed for martyrdom so much that you went back to the tortures you had previously escaped by leaving France for the missions again. Pray that we may all turn our sufferings into merits for the sake of our souls and those of others. Saint Isaac, you now live with Christ in Heaven for all eternity; pray for us who are still in this valley of tears. Amen.

Saint Isaac Jogues, pray for us!

PRAYER TO ST JOHN DE BREBEUF AND COMPANIONS

Father,
you consecrated the first beginnings
of the faith in North America
by the preaching and martyrdom
of Saints John and Isaac and their companions.
By the help of their prayers
may the Christian faith continue to grow
throughout the world.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.
