Through this Novena to Novena Prayer to the Saints in Heaven for the saints on earth we ask for the intercession of all those who have gone before us, marked with the sign of faith, as the Priest prays at Holy Mass; the Divine Liturgy. They are members of the Church, the Body of Christ, and so are we.
We are joined with them, in Jesus, and we are joined with one another, in Jesus,
Together, for the sake of the world which God still Loves so much that He sends His Son.
As members of the Body of Jesus Christ, that mission now continues through us. We are the Body of Jesus Christ.
The Saints in Heaven are examples to be imitated. They are powerful intercessors, who pray for us from their place in the Communion of Love in heaven. With the help of their intercession, we ask the Father to raise up Saints for our own age and to give us the graces we need to continue to grow into the Image and Likeness of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, so that we can grow in holiness of life and lead all men, women and children back to the Father, through the Son, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
