Novena to the Venerable Montse Grases

Fr Francisco Faus has written this Novena to enable readers – especially young people – to get to know Montse Grases better and to ask her intercession for favours.

“Montse was a girl just like any other, a very human person, who learnt to make the most humdrum situations into something supernatural – her family relationships, her teenage friendships, her study and work, her leisure time, etc.” (Interview with Monsignor José Luis Gutierrez Gomez, Postulator for Montse Grases’ Cause of Canonization). Everyone who knew her agreed that she had real sweetness – not sentimentality – which made her very attractive. As a result, lots of girls of her own age wanted to be friends with her, and she made friends with them generously. She was a deeply happy girl, and spread happiness around her in all situations, including her illness and death.

“By declaring Montse ‘Venerable’, the Church is saying that Montse is an example who can be proposed to Catholic faithful for our devotion and imitation, and is encouraging us to have recourse to her intercession to obtain favours from Heaven.”
