Easy Novena to St. Bonaventure - a Prayer to the Famous Franciscan and Doctor of the Church

Novena Prayer:
Dear St. Bonaventure Cardinal, Bishop and Doctor of the Church, you chose a life that embraced mortification and great humiliation. Choosing to serve those individuals who were rejected and sick you risked illness for yourself. You made your life a continuous prayer and spent hours meditating on the wounds of Christ. Please pray for us that we may have a sincere and humble heart. Pray that we may not lose sight of Jesus’ wounds and thus walk on the straight path to eternal salvation.
(For more on the Life of St. Bonaventure :
Saint July 15 : St. Bonaventure : Patron of Bowel Disorders - Doctor of the Church)

St. Bonaventure you were known to say “One should carefully beware of decreasing, even in the slightest, the honor that is due to Mary.” May we strive as you did to Love our Blessed Mother and be carriers of her peace in this world. May we take a great many souls with us to Our Heavenly Father.

Please place our petitions (mention them here) in the loving hands of Our Blessed Mother as we know they will be warmly received by her Son. Amen Say one Hail Mary. (pray the above prayer and Hail Mary daily for nine days for your intention)
