Novena to St. Francis of Assisi

A 9 day journey with the founder of the Franciscan order whose holiness and desire for God helped strengthen and renew the Church!


Let us follow in the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi and let his life resonate within us, so that he may pass on to us a little of his way of being and of his sensitive and profound union with God.

This novena can can help us communing with the soul and spirit of St. Francis so that he may help us grow in our relationship with God, as an act of friendship towards St. Francis and of love for God through St. Francis, or with a particular intention to be carried.

Prayer from the novena

Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love, Where there is injury, pardon Where there is doubt, faith, Where there is despair, hope, Where there is darkness, light, Where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, not so much to be understood as to understand, not so much to be loved, as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, it is in dying that we awake to eternal life.
