Today is the last day of our Novena to Blessed Columba Marmion. We offer thanks for his intercession and -- we have decided to begin a second Novena to him tomorrow. This second Novena will end on September 27th. The great-hearted Irish Abbot is a powerful intercessor, ever ready to help and comfort people from his place in heaven, just as he was ready to help and comfort people during his life on earth (1858-1923).

From a letter of Blessed Abbot Marmion:

I pray that God may give you the grace to abandon yourself entirely into the hands of Jesus Christ; for when we abandon ourselves with absolute confidence and without reserve, to His wisdom and love, He takes a most zealous care of every detail of our life; for, says Saint Paul, "Jesus Christ is our wisdom, our sanctity, our patience, our justice and redemption from God." "Reveal thy way to the Lord and hope in Him, and He will do the rest."
