Novena Day 1

St. Kateri,

Pure and tender Lilly,

At a young age you endured many trials

Such as the loss of your mom, dad, and young brother.

Smallpox that killed your family left its mark on your face

And harmed your vision.

Yet, through all of these trials, you

Continued with courage and tenacity.

Help me  to put my confidence in God and trust him 

To help me in all of my life's problems,

That he will aid and guide me, as he did you, 

To overcome obstacles.

Librarie Mariale, Trois-Rivieres

Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)

Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone. Col 4:6
