I remind you of the novena of our Lady and please, tell the Sisters, particularly the novices that prayer matters very much but they should also unite the exercise of virtues to prayer. Every day of the novena give some alms or whatever you think best to the poor girls.

For the intercession of Saint Magdalene of Canossa

For the intercession of Saint Magdalene of Canossa

     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.
