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."

September 10 --18, 2011

Dear friends and readers of Vultus Christi,

We continue our novena, recommending these intentions to Our Lord through the intercession of His devoted servant, the Irish Abbot, Blessed Columba Marmion, O.S.B.

Some of our intentions are:

1. Anthony DiRocco, the father of Brother Cassian Di Rocco, O.S.B., recently diagnosed with a very grave illness. Pray fervently that Blessed Abbot Marmion come to the help of Mr. Di Rocco, and of his little brother in Saint Benedict (they belong to same Benedictine Congregation of the Annunciation).

2. The healing of our dear Oblate Brother Vincent Uher, who is suffering grievously and waits upon God for some measure of relief, if such be His adorable Will. Ask Blessed Abbot Marmion to visit him with the healing power of Our Lord.

3. The health of Brother Benedict, one of my novices, who slated to undergo a delicate surgery next month to remove an infection from his sinuses. Brother Benedict is suffering quite a lot from his condition. Surely, Blessed Abbot Marmion will be sympathetic to his plight.

4. The health of Ann Margaret Felzke, the dear mother and grandmother of a family close to our monastery.

5. Good health for Father Mark's mother, Emma Rose Kirby.

6. Healing for Mary Melinda Buxton, sister of Oblate Sheila Michie.

7. Healing for Margaret Lawler, the mother of Scott.

The Novena began on September 10th. Here, we are reciting it daily after Holy Mass, and the Mass will be offered each day for the intentions mentioned above and for any intentions of yours that you would like to have included in the Novena.
