Latin Mass Novena begins today, May 4th

Dear Friends of the Charlotte Latin Mass Community (CLMC),

Laudetur Iesus Christus! Just a reminder that today Wednesday May 4th begins our Rosary novena to St. Gregory the Great, begging his intercession for the following intentions:

  1. Full sacramental life in the Extraordinary Form for the Latin Mass faithful in Charlotte (more details here)
  2. To send more priests for the Latin Mass faithful

The novena is simple, just pray 1 Rosary daily from May 4 – May 12th and recite the prayer to St. Gregory attached at the end of each rosary. Be sure to invoke Our Lady of Fatima’s intercession too as the novena ends the day before her feast.

Parents, please consider encouraging your children to pray too as their prayers are most efficacious (Matthew 18:3-4)

St. Gregory the Great and Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

Rosary Novena Prayer to St. Gregory the Great

  1. Pray a Rosary each day beginning May 4 and ending May 12.
  2. At the end of each Rosary, add this prayer:

St. Gregory, you are known for your zeal for the Catholic faith, love of liturgy, and compassion and mercy toward those in need.  Please help and guide us so that we may share in these virtues and thereby bring Jesus into the hearts of our families and all we encounter.  We especially ask for blessings on our parish family, our priests and our deacons.

I also ask that you graciously intercede for me before God so that I might be granted the special assistance and graces that I seek (full sacramental life in the Extraordinary Form for the Charlotte faithful and that Our Lord will send more Latin Mass priests to our diocese). 

Help me to live as a faithful child of God and to attain the eternal happiness of heaven.  

St. Gregory the Great, pray for us.  

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
