Novena Prayers to St. Longinus - Day 4

Novena Prayers to St. Longinus
Prayer (1)

Say on first, fourth, and seventh days of a 9 day cycle, especially beginning on 6 March and ending on 14 March, the eve of the Feast of St. Longinus.
O Saint Longinus, you were chosen as the Venerable gate keeper and was granted the gift of discernment by the Lord. An eyewitness of God’s miracle, who glorified the resurrected Christ. To your death, you remained Christ’s soldier and for Christ you gave your head.

Pray for us, therefore, O St. Longinus so that being inspired by your example and assisted by your prayers, we may live a holy life, die a happy death, and reach eternal life to praise and thank God in heaven with you. I ask you to pray to God this special request if it be His holy will.

1 Apostles’ Creed

Almighty, Eternal God, You were pleased to make Your Church illustrious through the varied splendor of St. Longinus. As we venerate his memory, may we also follow such shining examples of virtue on earth and thus obtain merited crowns in Heaven. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

St Longinus Patron Saint of the Physically and Spiritually Blind, Pray for us.

St Longinus Patron Saint of Good Discernment, Pray for us.



Remember, O most compassionate Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.


Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I kneel, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy clemency hear and answer me. Amen.




Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be

 Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done,

 on earth, as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our

 daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we

 forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us

 not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.




Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

 Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is

 the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

 Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,

 now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.




Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.




I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth,

 and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by

 the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,

 was crucified, died, and was buried.

 He descended into Hell; the third day He arose again from the dead;

 He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of God

 the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come

 to judge the living and the dead.

 I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church,

 the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins,

 the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen
