St. Gertrude the Great Novena – Day 9 – For the Grace of Humility
On this final day of this novena, we turn our hearts to St. Gertrude’s profound example of holy poverty. Her life, rich in virtue and devotion, continues to be a beacon that leads us to the true riches found in Christ. In the glory of heaven, she now stands before God, offering her prayers on our behalf. Let us humbly ask for the grace of humility so that we, too, may embrace the spiritual poverty that opens us to God’s infinite grace. And with trusting hearts, we ask St. Gertrude to intercede for the personal intention we carry through this novena.
We join St. Gertrude in a prayer she composed for the Holy Souls in Purgatory:
I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son,
Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today,
for all the holy Souls in Purgatory,
for sinners everywhere,
for sinners in the Universal Church,
those in my own home and within my family.
St. Gertrude the Great, pray for us
