Prayer To St Alphonsus Liguori

Prayer is an important way to experience God as the religious believer can communicate with Him. By bringing their problems to God, or asking for forgiveness and help, they come closer to Him. Christians believe they can speak with God in prayer and were taught to pray by Jesus himself.

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

Day 1 – St. Alphonsus Liguori Novena

Glorious St Alphonsus, loving Father of the poor and sick, all your life you devoted yourself, with a heroic charity, to lighten their spiritual and bodily miseries. Full of confidence in your tender pity for the sick, since you yourself patiently borne the cross of illness, I come to you for help in my present need…

First Day
Jesus said: “Today bring to me all mankind, especially
all sinners, and immerse them in the ocean of my
mercy. In this way you will console me in the bitter
grief into which the loss of souls plunges me.”
Most merciful Jesus, whose very nature it is to have
compassion on us to forgive us, do not look upon our
sins, but upon our trust which we place in Your
infinite goodness. Receive us all into the abode of
Your Most Compassionate Heart, and never let us
escape from it. We beg this of You by Your love
which unites You to the Father and the Holy Spirit.
Eternal Father, turn Your Merciful gaze upon all
mankind and especially upon poor sinners, all enfolded
in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion show us
Your Mercy, that we may praise the infinite power of Your Mercy, forever and forever.
Amen.”
Second Day
Jesus said: “Today bring to me the souls of Priests and Religious and immerse them in my
unfathomable mercy. It was they who gave me strength to endure my bitter passion.
Through them, as though channels, my mercy flows out upon mankind.”
Most Merciful Jesus, from whom comes all that is good, increase Your grace in men and
women consecrated to Your service that they perform worthy works of mercy, and that all
who see them may glorify the Father of Mercy who is in Heaven. Eternal Father, turn Your
merciful gaze upon the company of chosen ones in Your vineyard – upon the souls of
Priests and Religious – and endow them with the strength of Your Blessing. For the Love of
the Heart of Your Son in which they are enfolded, impart to them Your Power and Light,
that they may be able to guide others in the way of salvation, and with one voice sing
praise to Your boundless Mercy for ages without end. Amen
2
Third Day
Jesus said: “Today bring to me all devout and faithful souls and immerse them in the ocean
of my mercy. These souls brought me consolation on the Way of the Cross. They were that
drop of consolation in the midst of an ocean of bitterness.”
Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your Mercy, You impart Your graces in great
abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart
and never let us escape from it. We beg this grace of You by that most wondrous love for
the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely. Eternal Father, turn Your
merciful gaze upon faithful souls, as upon the inheritance of Your Son. For the sake of His
Sorrowful Passion grant them Your blessing and surround them with Your constant
protection. Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the Holy Faith, but
rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify Your boundless Mercy for
endless ages. Amen
Fourth Day
Jesus said: “Today bring to me those who do not believe in God and those who do not yet
know me. I was thinking also of them during my bitter passion, and their future zeal
comforted my heart. Immerse them in the ocean of my mercy.”
Most Compassionate Jesus, You are the Light of the whole world. Receive into the abode
of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who as yet do not believe in You or
do not know You. Let the rays of Your Grace enlighten them that they, too, together with
us, may extol Your wonderful Mercy, and do not let them escape from the abode which is
Your Compassionate Heart. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls who do
not believe in Your Son, and of those who as yet do not know You, but who are enclosed
in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Draw them to the light of the Gospel. These
souls do not know what great happiness it is to love You. Grant that they, too, may extol
the generosity of Your Mercy for endless ages. Amen
Fifth Day
Jesus said: “Today bring to me the souls who have separated from my Church and immerse
them in the ocean of my mercy. During my bitter passion they tore at my body and Heart,
that is, my Church. As they return to unity with the Church, my wounds heal, and in this
way they alleviate my passion.”
Most Merciful Jesus, Goodness Itself, You do not refuse light to those who seek it of You.
Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who have
separated from Your Church. Draw them by Your Light into the unity of the Church, and
do not let them escape from the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart; but bring it
about that they, too, come to glorify the generosity of Your Mercy. Eternal Father, turn
3
Your Merciful gaze upon the souls of those who are separated from Your Son’s Church,
especially those who have squandered Your Blessings and misused Your Graces by
obstinately persisting in their errors. Do not look upon their errors, but upon the love of
Your Own Son and upon His Bitter Passion, which He underwent for their sake, since they,
too, are enclosed in His Most Compassionate Heart. Bring it about that they may glorify
Your great Mercy for endless ages. Amen
Sixth Day
Jesus said: “Today bring to me the meek and humble souls and the souls of little children
and immerse them in my mercy. These souls most closely resemble my Heart. They
strengthened me during my bitter agony. I saw them as earthly angels, who will keep vigil
at my altars. I pour out upon them whole torrents of grace. Only the humble souls are
capable of receiving my grace. I favour humble souls with my confidence.”
Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said “Learn from Me for I am meek and humble of
heart”. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart all meek and humble
souls and the souls of little children. These souls send all Heaven into ecstasy, and they are
the Heavenly Father’s favourites. They are a sweet-smelling bouquet before the Throne of
God; God Himself takes delight in their fragrance. These souls have a permanent abode in
Your Most Compassionate Heart, O Jesus, and they unceasingly sing out a hymn of love
and mercy. Eternal Father, turn Your Merciful gaze upon meek and humble souls and upon
the souls of little children, who are enfolded in the abode which is the Most Compassionate
Heart of Jesus. These souls bear the closest resemblance to Your Son. Their fragrance rises
from the earth and reaches Your very Throne. Father of Mercy and of all Goodness, I beg
You by the love You bear these souls and by the delight You take in them. Bless the whole
world, that all souls together may sing out the praises of Your Mercy for endless ages.
Amen
Seventh Day
Jesus said: “Today bring to me the souls who especially venerate and glorify my mercy and
immerse them in my mercy. These souls sorrowed most over my passion and entered most
deeply into my spirit. They are living images of my compassionate heart. These souls will
shine with a special brightness in the next life. Not one of them will go into the fire of hell.
I shall particularly defend each one of them at the hour of death.”
Most Merciful Jesus, whose Heart is Love Itself, receive into the abode of Your Most
Compassionate Heart the souls of those who particularly extol and venerate the greatness of
Your Mercy. These souls are mighty with the very power of God Himself. In the midst of
all afflictions and adversities they go forward confident of Your Mercy. These souls are
united to Jesus and carry all mankind on their shoulders. These souls will not be judged
severely, but Your Mercy will embrace them as they depart from this life. Eternal Father,
turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls who glorify and venerate Your greatest attribute,
4
that of Your fathomless Mercy, and who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of
Jesus. These souls are a living Gospel; their hands are full of deeds of mercy and their
spirits, overflowing with joy, sing a canticle of mercy to You, O Most High! I beg You O
God: show them Your Mercy according to the hope and trust they have placed in You. Let
there be accomplished in them the Promise of Jesus, who said to them that during their
life, but especially at the hour of death, the souls who will venerate this fathomless Mercy
of His, He, Himself, will defend as His Glory. Amen
Eighth Day
Jesus said: “Today bring to me the souls who are detained in purgatory and immerse them
in the abyss of my mercy. Let the torrents of my Blood cool down their scorching flames.
All these souls are really loved by me. They are making retribution to my justice. It is in
your power to bring them relief. Draw all indulgences from the treasury of my Church and
offer them on their behalf. Oh, if you only knew the torments they suffer, you would
continually offer for them the alms of the spirit and pay off their debt for my justice.”
Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said that You desire mercy; so I bring into the
abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls in Purgatory, souls who are very dear
to You, and yet who must make retribution to Your Justice. May the streams of Blood and
Water which gushed forth from Your Heart put out the flames of the purifying fire, that in
that place, too, the Power of Your Mercy may be praised. Eternal Father, turn Your
Merciful gaze upon the souls suffering in Purgatory, who are enfolded in the Most
Compassionate Heart of Jesus. I beg You, by the sorrowful Passion of Jesus Your Son, and
by all the bitterness with which His most Sacred Soul was flooded, manifest Your Mercy to
the souls who are under Your Just Scrutiny. Look upon them in no other way than through
the Wounds of Jesus, Your Dearly Beloved Son; for we firmly believe that there is no limit
to Your Goodness and Compassion. Amen
Ninth Day
Jesus said: “Today bring to me souls who have become lukewarm and immerse them in the
abyss of my mercy. These souls wound my Heart most painfully. My soul suffered the most
dreadful loathing in the Garden of Olives because of lukewarm souls. They were the reason
I cried out: “Father, take this cup away from me, if it be Your will”. For them the last hope
of salvation is to run to my mercy.”
Most Compassionate Jesus, You are Compassion Itself. I bring lukewarm souls into the
abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart. In this fire of Your Pure Love let these tepid
souls, who, like corpses, filled You with such deep loathing, be once again set aflame. O
Most Compassionate Jesus, exercise the omnipotence of Your Mercy and draw them into
the very ardour of Your Love; and bestow upon them the gift of Holy Love, for nothing is
beyond Your power. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm souls who are
nonetheless enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Father of Mercy, I beg
5
You by the bitter passion of Your Son and by His three-hour agony on the Cross, let them
too, glorify the Abyss of Your Mercy. Amen
When you go to confession, to this fountain of mercy, the Blood and Water which came
forth from My Heart always flow down upon your soul…In the Tribunal of Mercy [the
sacrament of Reconciliation]…the greatest miracles take place and are incessantly
repeated…Here the misery of the soul meets the God of Mercy..
Come with faith to the feet of My representative…I myself am waiting there for you. I am
only hidden by the priest… I Myself act in your soul… Make your confession before Me.
The person of the priest is, for Me, only a screen. Never analyze what sort of a priest it is
that I am making use of; open your soul in confession as you would to Me, and I will fill it
with My light…
Were a soul like a decaying corpse, so that from a human standpoint, there would be no
hope of restoration and everything would already be lost, it is not so with God. The
miracle of Divine Mercy restores that soul in full… From this fount of mercy souls draw
graces solely worth the vessel of trust. If their trust is great, there is no limit to My
generosity.
Our Lord has made the reception of the Eucharist a
