People amongst you already help us in this project and we sincerely thank you.
First of all, today we ask you for prayers. A novena to Saint Jean-Gabriel Perboyre (a French martyr in China), graciously begun by the priests of the parish of Saint Eloi (whom we congratulate), must be spread to all good souls. Perhaps you could also have Masses offered for this intention.
“In the Crucifix, the Gospel, and the Eucharist, we find everything we can desire. There is no other way, no other truth, no other life”. Saint Jean-Gabriel Perboyre.
You will find the text of the novena below. We also ask you to sign up by email through our website.
You can send your Mass stipends to the following address:
IBP Central : Abbé Philippe Laguérie, 1 rue du Château
fondu, 78200 Fontenay-Mauvoisin.
You can also anticipate the success of this novena, making an act of faith, by participating in the fundraising for this seminary.
You already know the importance of the formation of your future priests in the heart of the Holy Church. Confident that you will receive many graces in participating in this project, we assure you of our gratitude.
Novena to Saint Jean gabriel Perboyre
Martyr in China in 1840
Divine Savior, transform me into yourself.
May my hands be your hands.
May my tongue be your tongue.
Grant that every faculty of my body may serve only to glorify you.
Above all, transform my soul and its power that my memory,
the will and the affections of you.
I pray you to destroy in me all that is not of you.
Grant that I may live but in you and by you and for you,
that I may truly say with Saint Paul, "I live, now not I, but Christ lives in me."
Our Father, ten Hail Mary, Glory be...
by Saint John Gabriel Perboyre, C.M
