Novena To St. Patrick
O Glorious St. Patrick, who was sent to the people of Ireland to spread the faith and spend your life in loving service to God and His people we now turn to you, Patron of Boston, to intercede for us.  Help us to clasp unto our hearts, this day, the healing strength of the Trinity. May the example of your life, preaching and prayers inspire fervent and loving followers of Jesus in our Archdiocese. May your prayers obtain for us the grace to work together in building up the Church in Boston.  Pray for us to be open to the Holy Spirit and to live the vocation to holiness by loving God above all things and our neighbors as ourselves.  Intercede for us with the Master of the Harvest to send an abundance of workers into the fields. May your prayers obtain for us devoted Priests, Deacons and Religious to serve God and His Church.
