We invite you to join us in a Rosary novena, beginning January 25, 2022. We are discerning how we can fully live our charism and we will pray that the Virgin Mother, who said ‘yes’ to our Lord, helps us follow the will of her Son, and the Church He founded. We will observe these nine days ending on the Feast of Her Purification, Candlemas Day. Throughout this novena, our hearts will be fixed on Mary’s—whose heart was also pierced—and who will ultimately say to us, as she told the wedding guests at Cana, pointing to her Son: “Do whatever He tells you.”
The Canons Regular will pray the rosary at 4:30 pm before Vespers each of those days. All are welcome to join us in person, or to pray the Rosary with their families at home at that time.
The leader will announce this intention each day:
We offer this Rosary for the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, for its members and all the faithful to whom we minister. We ask Mary who said, “yes” to our Lord, to help us follow the will of her Son, and the Church He founded.
We pray for our Holy Father Pope Francis and Cardinal Blase Cupich. We pray for unity in Holy Mother Church and the preservation and spread of the Christian Faith.
