As some of the readers of this blog know, I have been volunteering over the past ten years for a developing lay apostolate at the service of Catholic priests and bishops: The Christopher Inn International.
On Thursday, February 14, 2019, the team of The Christopher Inn International will begin a novena in honor of the Chair of Saint Peter, which is celebrated each year as a feast day on February 22nd.
February 22, 2019 will also mark the 19th anniversary of the incorporation of The Christopher Inn International as a non-profit organization.
Please consider joining in prayer for God’s blessing on this developing apostolate. To do so, simply pray the following each day, beginning on February 14 and concluding on February 22:
O Holy Apostle,
because you are the rock upon which Almighty God has built His church,
obtain for me, I pray you:
firm hope and burning love;
complete detachment from myself;
contempt of the world;
patience in adversity;
humility in prosperity;
recollection in prayer;
purity of heart;
a right intention in all my works;
diligence in fulfilling the duties of my state of life;
constancy in my resolutions;
resignation to the will of God; and
perseverance in the grace of God even unto death;
that so, by means of your intercession and your glorious merits,
I may be made worthy to appear before the chief and eternal shepherd of souls,
who with the Father and the Holy Spirit
lives and reigns forever.
