Praying a Novena


I have never prayed a Novena. Any suggestions on getting started? I have a lot of difficulty being consistent and anticipate not adhering to a strict daily routine, is that an issue?

Any thoughts are appreciated.

I use They send daily emails with the novena right in the body of the email. They do them almost back to back, which helps to keep me on track. Enjoy!

There’s a great new app called Pray, by the apologist Devin Rose. There are lots of novenas to choose from and they send you reminders. Beautifully designed app and very easy to use. If you search “Catholic novena app” or something along those lines, you’ll see it. The icon is light blue with a white cross.
