Do you know if there are special favors or indulgences attached to every novena or certain novenas? I always forget to check my calendar to get my novena started at the right time to end before any given feast day. Even if I start on the right day, I always get tripped up and forget a day or two. I’d heard of a 9 HOUR novena and I can make it through that ok, but I wasn’t sure if it was sufficient to obtain whatever favors or indulgences are attached to the novena.
I don’t mean to be overly scrupulous, I just want to be clear. I heard a saying once that if you try saying a rosary and you fell asleep (say at bedtime) that the angels in heaven finished it for you. This is a nice saying, but I wonder if you could say the same thing for missing a day of a novena if the desire and intention to complete it is there. Maybe I could pick up the missed days after the novena?
