St. Pope Gregory VII Novena Day 1

Let us begin, In the name oft he Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

O invincible defender of Holy Church’s freedom
Saint Gregory of great renown,
by the firmness that you did show
in maintaining the Church’s rights against all her enemies,
stretch forth from heaven your mighty arm,
we beseech you, to comfort her and defend her
in the fearful battle she must ever wage
with the powers of darkness.
Do so, in a special manner,
give strength in this dread conflict
to the venerable Pontiff
who has fallen heir not only to your throne,
but likewise to the fearlessness of your mighty heart;
obtain for him the joy of beholding his holy endeavors
crowned by the triumph of the Church
and the return of the lost sheep into the right path.
Grant, finally, that all may understand how vain it is
to strive against that faith which has always conquered
and is destined always to conquer:
‘this is the victory which overcomes the world, our faith.’
This is the prayer that we raise to you with one accord;
and we are confident, that,
after you have heard our prayers on earth,
you will one day call us to stand with you in heaven,
before the eternal High Priest,
who with the Father and the Holy Spirit
lives and reigns world without end.

Amen
