Novena to Bring the Traditional Latin Mass to the Faithful

So many Catholics are want in this form of the Mass but are denied.  I feel for them as I once lived in the desert known as the badly-done Novus Ordo.  I believe prayer had a great deal to do with why our parish now has this Mass.  I wanted to see if there was a novena that might be appropriate for this petition.  I thought perhaps a novena to St. Pius X would be fitting.  While the novena does not mention the EF of  the Mass, we could nonetheless make this the intention for which we pray.

When I did a Google search for the novena, I found that there was an effort to do this last year, starting on August 25, 2010.  So I would propose making August 25 2011 our start date. It would be great if those of you with your own blogs who are so inclined would spread the word.  BTW, given that my mind ain't what it used to be, perhaps someone might, in their charity, remind me a few days before hand that we're going to do this. I could very well forget, given that I have a sieve for a brain these days.

Here  is the prayer:

Glorious pope of the Eucharist, St. Pius X, you sought “to restore all things in Christ.” Obtain for me a true love of Jesus so that I may live only for Him. Help me to acquire a lively fervor and a sincere will to strive for sanctity of life and that I may avail myself of the riches of the Holy Eucharist, which is sacrifice and sacrament. By your love for Mary, mother and queen, inflame my heart with tender devotion to her.
Blessed model of the priesthood, obtain for us holy, dedicated priests, and increase vocations to the priesthood and religious life.
Dispel confusion, hatred, and anxiety. Incline our hearts to peace so that all nations will place themselves under the reign of Christ. Amen.
St. Pius X, pray for me.
(Here mention your request).


  1. Thanks for this. Good idea.
    By the way, have you ever gone to the website "pray more". Very clever, as they actually email you a reminder with the prayers.

  2. Yes, I agree. I want the communion rails brought back, patens, and no EMHC. I pray for this everytime I go to mass. The reverence is missing in the mass of today. The novena sounds like a plan!

  3. Julie, no I haven't, I'll have to check it out! Thanks :)

  4. I will be joining you in this! There is another novena site that has daily reminders and the lectionary

  5. Anonymous, great, thank you I will check it out.


Comments which reflect true Christian charity are always welcome. Comments which attack the Pope, the Church, priests or other bloggers will go in the dustbin, especially if they are anonymous. Thank you and God Bless you!
