St. Bonaventure Novena Day 2

St. Bonaventure Novena Day 2


St. Bonaventure you have said:

Three things are necessary to everyone regardless of status, sex, or age, i.e., truth of faith which brings understanding; love of Christ which brings compassion; endurance of hope which brings perseverance. No adult is in state of salvation unless he has faithful understanding in his mind, loving compassion in his heart, and enduring perseverance in his actions.

Dear St. Bonaventure
Cardinal, Bishop and Doctor of the Church,
you chose a life that embraced mortification and great humiliation.
Choosing to serve those individuals who were rejected and sick you risked illness for yourself.
You made your life a continuous prayer and spent hours meditating on the wounds of Christ.
Please pray for us that we may have a sincere and humble heart.
Pray that we may not lose sight of Jesus’ wounds and thus walk on the straight path to eternal salvation.

All-powerful Father,
may we who celebrate the feast of St. Bonaventure
always benefit from his wisdom
and follow the example of his love.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

  1. I started the novena day one 10 March (I found this novena after searching for patron saints for bowel problems). My prayer request is for healing of my bowel problems and that my colonoscopy tests I am scheduled to have soon be just perfect. I will continue to complete the balance 8 days. I plead this great St Bonaventure hear my prayers. It would be nice if there was a special site for prayer requests. A small donation promised to be sent in thanksgiving.


    God bless
