Question about novenas.


#1

The guidelines for a novena in which I am interested state that I am to follow with Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be, three times each.

My question is, do I say each one three times in a row or do I say one right after the other three times?


#2

I think you should say 3 Our Fathers then 3 Hail Marys then 3 Glory Bes.

I could be wrong, but that's how I'd do it.

I my family did the Divine Mercy Novena Easter week, it was a great blessing to us.


#3

It doesn't matter. Say them however you feel most comfortable. Usually it is easiest for me to say each one three times in a row, but do what you prefer.


#4

Whether praying privately and with with a group, I have always prayed one set (Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be) followed by the next.
