A Prayer to Saint Gemma Galgani

A friend in St Gemma named Joseph composed this nice prayer to Saint Gemma from "The Life of St Gemma Galgani" and other sources. I gladly post it here for the benefit of all, and I thank Joseph for sharing it. -webmaster
Novena Prayer to Saint Gemma Galgani
(by: E. Joseph Eaggleston III, on January 15, 2006)

O purest Saint Gemma Galgani, you once said: I would wish to bathe with my blood all those places where Jesus is outraged. I would wish all sinners to be saved, because they have been redeemed by the Precious Blood of Jesus.”*

Therefore, O most pure and humble Virgin Saint Gemma, I (say name,) a wretched sinner of weak faith, do now beg you to eternally obtain for me, from the Sacred Heart of Jesus, your Mystical Spouse, this request [here name request(s)]:

Dearest Saint Gemma, I have absolute confidence in your intercession –for during your short life on earth- Christ Jesus, did allow you to share in His Salvific Passion; hence, the thought of a lost soul filled you with consternation. Therefore, O most docile Saint Gemma, you spent your time on earth embracing the cross so our Lord Jesus would not have to suffer alone the pain of our sins; while pleading with Him for the salvation of all sinners. So alarmed were you, Saint Gemma, at the thought of a lost soul being eternally damned; that you invoked and begged Mary, the Eternal Virgin Mother of God, to help you plead for the most wretched of souls: Thus ensuring mercy from her Son Jesus for even the most horrific of sinners!

Now that you are in Heaven, Saint Gemma, and have absolute favor with Christ Jesus; there is no doubt that your help, for sinners, is immeasurable and to the Glory of the Holy Trinity God!!! It is therefore, impossible for your help Saint Gemma, to fail those of us still in exile from Heaven, who call on your intersession. -Amen and Ave Maria.

V. Pray for us, Saint Gemma Galgani.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ Jesus.

Let us Pray: Lord hear the prayers of those who recall the devoted life of the Virgin and
Spiritual Martyr Saint Gemma Galgani, whom You gave victory over pain
and suffering. Guide us on our way and help us to live by Your Grace and remain a temple of Your Holy Spirit. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.**

**(closing prayer is combined from one prayer on pg. 1416
and two prayers on pg. 1443 of “Christian Prayer.”)
