Dear Friends

Good morning

As you know we have celebrated a number of feast in honour of Our Lady recently:
the Assumption; the Queenship of Mary; Our Lady’s Birthday and Our Lady of Sorrows

We recognise the importance of Mary in our prayers; St Ignatius of Loyola in his Colloquy says that she is the one who accompanies us to Jesus and with Mary and Jesus we make our way to the Father.

And so …. One of my classmates has written a short Novena of prayer which I have attached. I think it might help us through this time.


St Joseph, spouse of the Mother of God, pray for us

Every blessing

Fr John
