I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.

Novena to St. Rocco Against Contagious Diseases
Prayed for Nine Days
O Great St. Rocco, deliver us,
we beseech thee, from contagious diseases.
Through thy intercession,
preserve our bodies from illness,
and our souls from the contagion of sin.
Obtain for us salubrious air, but,
above all, purity of heart.
Assist us to make good use of health,
to bear suffering with patience,
and, after thy example,
to live in the practice of penance and charity,
that we may one day enjoy the happiness
which thou has merited by thy virtues.
St. Rocco, pray for us – 3 times.

Catholic sponsors who are willing to share their faith experiences with new members and journey with them throughout the process are always needed.
