Day Five - Confessor of Souls

O Holy Priest of Ars, you knew how important was a good confession for the Christian life. It was to procure the happy fruits of millions of souls that you agreed to be in an uncomfortable confessional, which was like a prison, up to 15 to 16 hours on certain days. I will try to develop the habit of frequent confession, to prepare properly each time and to have always regret for my sins, so that the grace of final perseverance but also the sanctification of my soul will be assured. Ask this grace for me.

Holy Priest of Ars, I have confidence in your intercession. Pray for me during this novena especially for ... (mention silently your special intentions).

Say: Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be O St John Vianney, Patron of Priests, pray for us and for all priests!

I just have to thank you again for this wonderful novena. I went to Mass today and I talked with several people concerning my vocation. One man who is in the process of becoming a deacon said that he would have the Knights of Colombus do something for me when I leave for college. Everyone has been so nice and helpful. My priest today suggested that after the seminary I go for a STL degree from Rome.

Thank you. With the support of my family, priest, parish, and blogging friends I know that God's will shall be done.
