Day 9 - Novena of Benedict

March 20 -

Ever-creating God,
we witness your love
in the expression of Benedictine life.

As we prepare to celebrate
the Solemnity of Saint Benedict,
may we be ever mindful
of Benedictine influence in past ages,
and may our continued commitment
give hope to oppressed peoples
who seek peace and justice.

We pray in praise of your holy name
and with the Spirit
now and forever.

Amen.
