I entreat you to do well the novena to the Holy Spirit because I want you to be burning, or better, glowing as a flame, consuming yourself bit by bit, so as to serve the Lord for a longer period.
For the intercession of Saint Magdalene of Canossa
O God, Father of goodness, you revealed your love to the humble and to the children,
by raising in your Church, Saint Magdalene of Canossa
to be the servant of the poor, grant that we may seek you above all things and serve the poor
and the little ones in the true spirit of charity and humility.
For Christ our Lord. Amen. Saint Magdalene di Canossa – pray for us
Graciously look down, o Lord, on our present sorrows and necessities
and, through the intercession of Magdalene of Canossa, grant that, renewed in spirit
by the constant contemplation of Jesus Crucified and Mary, Mother of Sorrows,
we may by found worthy to be heard in our petitions. Amen.
Our Mother Foundress – pray for us
Boże, źródło wszelkiej świętości, Ty dałeś Twojej wiernej służebnicy, świętej Magdalenie naszej Matce i Założycielce,
łaskę uczestniczenia w miłości Chrystusa, twojego Syna a naszego Zbawiciela.
Za jej wstawiennictwem wlej w nasze serca dary Ducha Świętego, abyśmy mogli, podobnie jak ona,
chwalić Cię całym życiem, kochając i służąc Jezusowi Panu w naszych braciach.
Przez Chrystusa, Pana naszego. Amen.
Our Father in Heaven, where You crown the merits of those who serve you faithfully on earth,
show us the crown you have granted to Magdalene of Canossa by granting our humble prayer through her intercession.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.
Jesus Christ, Son of the Eternal Father, our Lord, you promised eternal happiness to those who serve you in the least of your brothers. Grant us the grace we ask you through the intercession pleasing to you, of Magdalene. She spent the whole of her life in the service of our brothers and was pleased to call the members of the charitable Institute she founded by the name of Servants of the Poor. Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.
Holy Spirit, ineffable love of the Father and Son, you work miracles of grace in souls. Through that Charity which you put in the heart of your generous disciple, Magdalene of Canossa, increase in us through her intercession, your grace and grant what we are asking of you. Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.
Our Lady of Sorrows, to whom our Foundress humbly dedicated her Institute, obtain for us the spirit of faith, hope and charity which animated your handmaid who now, by divine goodness, is your companion in heaven and grant that our humble supplications may be mercifully heard by the Lord. Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.
