Day Seven - Dispeller of Satan


O Holy Priest of Ars, the infamous attacks of the devil which you had to suffer and the trials which disheartened you by fatigue would not make you give up the sublime task of converting souls. The devil came to you for many years to disturb your short rest but you won because of mortification and prayers.

Powerful protector, you know the temptor's desire to harm my baptized and believing soul. He would have me sin, by rejecting the Holy Sacraments and the life of virtue. But good Saint of Ars dispel from me the traces of the enemy.

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 love this novena. Did you get this out of a prayer book or from a website?

Hi Moneybags,
This novena has hit many areas that I needed to be praying about. I have found it to be wonderful for my daily reflections. I found it at Catholic Friends@groups.msn.com

I did a google search to find it and asked the Holy Spirit to help me pick the best one for our intentions. This is the only I felt drawn to.
