Novena to St. Patrick - Day Two

Even if you have not started, please join me in praying this novena to St. Patrick of Ireland.

Novena to St. Patrick

As a youth, St. Patrick was a slave in Ireland , separated from his family and everyone he knew. He must have felt lonely at times and certainly yearned to see them again. We all sometimes feel lonely. Even if we are living among family or friends, we can feel very alone or that no one understands what we are experiencing. Yet even at these times, God is with us.


Jesus, how alone You must have felt when, after praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, with the weight of the world on Your shoulders, You found the Apostles sleeping. There are times when I feel there is no one to whom I can turn with my fears, my loneliness, my pain. At those times, Jesus, help me to see and take Your hand. And guide me, Jesus, to the people in my life whom You have sent as messengers of Your love.
