Join the St. Josemaria Institute in praying the Novena to St. Josemaria Escriva from June 17-25, 2022. This year, in preparation for his feast day on June 26, we will pray especially for the intention of marriage and the family as a way to holiness.
Pope Francis will conclude the year “Amoris Laetitia Family” on June 26, 2022 during the 10th Meeting of Families in Rome. The year “Amoris Laetitia Family” celebrated the fifth anniversary of the publication of Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia, on the beauty and joy of love in the family. The goal of these celebrations “intended to highlight family love as a vocation and as a way of holiness, so as to understand and share the profound and salvific meaning of family relationships in daily life.”
Our prayers for each day of the novena are adapted from the Novena for the Family written by Fr. Francisco Faus, which aims to ask God through the intercession of St. Josemaria for the grace to maintain or continually improve a truly Christian family, on the bedrock of the love for Christ and the example of the Holy Family, the foundations on which— with the grace of the Holy Spirit — every Christian family should be built.
