The Novena was prepared by Fr Francisco Faus in Brazil and then translated into English. We ask God to grant us serenity and peace of heart in difficult situations or times of trial through the intercession of Blessed Alvaro.
A novena is a prayer repeated for nine consecutive days to ask God for answers to a specific request, struggle, or prayer. The novena prayer is repeated each day and can be accompanied by reading and reflection. Novenas can be offered throughout the year and are often prayed in preparation for a feast day of the Church.
