St. Maria Goretti Novena

St. Maria Goretti is a wonderful intercessor for our youth.
Her feast day is July 6th.

As is the nature of a novena prayer, it is said nine (9) consecutive days. This is a simple one in that that same prayers are repeated each of the nine days.


Blessed be God.
Blessed be his holy name.
Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true man.
Blessed me the name of Jesus.
Blessed be his most Sacred Heart.Blessed be his most Precious Blood.
Blessed be Jesus in the most holy Sacrament of the Altar.
Blessed be the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete.
Blessed be the great Mother of God, Mary most holy.
Blessed be her holy and Immaculate Conception.
Blessed be her glorious Assumption.
Blessed be the name of Mary, Virgin and Mother.
Blessed be St. Joseph, her spouse most chaste.
Blessed be God in his Angels and in his Saints.


Child of God,
You who at an early age knew life’s harshness and toil, its sorrows and brief joys;
You who were poor, an orphan, who loved your neighbour tirelessly, making yourself a humble and attentive servant;
You who were kind and good, without pride, who loved Love above all else;
You who shed your blood so as not to betray the Lord;
You who forgave your assassin wishing him in Paradise;
Intercede and pray for us to the Father, so that we may consent to his holy will for us.
You who are God’s friend and see him face to face obtain the grace we are seeking from you…
(state your intention here)
We thank you Maria, for the love of God and neighbour that you have sown in our hearts. Amen.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, be my Love!
Immaculate heart of Mary, be my salvation!
St. Maria Goretti, Virgin and Martyr, pray for us!
