  • Pier Giorgio Novena

    NOVENA TO BLESSED PIER GIORGIO FRASSATI


    DAY 1
    “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
    Pier Giorgio's words: “The faith given to me in Baptism surely suggests to me that of yourself you will do nothing; but if you have God as the center of all your actions, then you will reach the goal.”
    PRAY: Dear Lord, by the example of Blessed Pier Giorgio, help us to keep you at the center of our actions, because only then can we reach our goal.
     
    DAY 2
    “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
    Pier Giorgio's words: “Our life has be a continual sacrifice. But this is not difficult, if one thinks what these few years passed in suffering are, compared with eternal happiness where joy will have no measure or end, and where we shall have unimaginable peace.”
    PRAY:  Dear Lord, by the example of Blessed Pier Giorgio, we offer our suffering and our sadness as a continual sacrifice towards eternal happiness.
     
    DAY 3
    Jesus says: “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”
    Pier Giorgio's words: “With violence you sow hatred, and you harvest its bad fruits. With charity, you sow peace among men – not the peace that the world gives, but the true peace that only faith in Jesus Christ can give us in common brotherhood.”
    PRAY: Dear Lord, by the example of Blessed Pier Giorgio, grant us peace and patience as we navigate this journey.
     
    DAY 4
    Jesus says: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”
    Pier Giorgio's words: “What wealth it is to be in good health, as we are! But we have the duty of putting our health at the service of those who do not have it. To act otherwise would be to betray that gift of God.”
    PRAY: Dear Lord, by the example of Blessed Pier Giorgio,  show us how to be of service towards others, especially those who do not have good health.
     
    DAY 5
    Jesus says: “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.”
    Pier Giorgio's words: “St. Paul says that “the charity of Christ urges us.” Without this flame, which should burn out our personality little by little and blaze only for other people’s griefs, we would not be Christian, let alone Catholic.”
    PRAY:. Dear Lord, by the example of Blessed Pier Giorgio, help us to show mercy in words and deeds.
     
    DAY 6
    Jesus says: “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”
    Pier Giorgio's words: “I beg you to pray for me a little, so that God may give me an iron will that does not bend and does not fail in His projects.”
    PRAY: Dear Lord, by the example of Blessed Pier Giorgio, please help us to be good examples so that we can build up God’s Kingdom.
     
    DAY 7
    Jesus says: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.”
    Pier Giorgio's words: “I offer you my best wishes – or, rather, only one wish, but the only wish that a true friend can express for a dear friend: may the peace of the Lord be with you always! For, if you possess peace every day, you will be truly rich.”
    PRAY: Dear Lord, by the example of Blessed Pier Giorgio, may the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with us all.
     
    DAY 8
    Jesus says: “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
    Pier Giorgio's words: “To live without faith, without a patrimony to defend, without a steady struggle for truth – that is not living, but existing.”
    PRAY:  Dear Lord, by the example of Blessed Pier Giorgio, guide us to be courageous and stand up for Your truth.
     
    DAY 9
    Jesus says: “Blessed are you when they revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on My account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven.”
    Pier Giorgio's words: “We who by the grace of God are Catholics must steel ourselves for the battle we shall certainly have to fight to fulfill our program and to give our country, in the not too distant future, happier days and a morally healthy society. But to achieve this we need constant prayer to obtain from God that grace without which all our powers are useless.”
    PRAY:  Dear Lord, by the example of Blessed Pier Giorgio, grant us your grace to respect all life no matter how young and what condition.
