Stories of Intercession: “A Beautiful Devotion for Our Future Together”

By The McDonald Family


My wife and I just received our paper copy of your novena for married and engaged couples.

We are grateful to have this beautiful devotion on hand for our future together, as we can attest to it’s efficacy.

My wife and I were married on June 21, 2013, and we said the digital version of the novena together on the nine days leading up to our wedding, which was a beautiful experience. We were blessed enough after our wedding to be able to honeymoon in Rome. On Wednesday, June 26, we attended a General Audience, made it into the newlywed section, and met the Holy Father in person! Only afterward did we realize that the 26 of June is St. Josemaria’s feast day. Emily and I attribute the blessing of meeting Pope Francis to the intercession of St. Josemaria Escriva. We will continue to recommend this novena to the other married and engaged couples in our lives. Thank you for making it readily available.

In Christ,
The McDonald Family
