Announcing the NOVENA to Blessed BENEDICT DASWA – Memorial 1 February
Begins 23 January
We are encouraging people in all the Dioceses of Southern Africa (SACBC region) to pray for the favours and graces they need during the nine days prior to the Feast on 1 February. This novena will commence on 23 January and conclude on 31 January. We also invite people to make three acts of kindness each day of the Novena in remembrance of the three acts of charity which Blessed Benedict performed the day he was martyred.
The Novena Prayer in various languages for opening or downloading:
South Sotho s-sotho-novena
North Sotho sepedi-novena
Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco
Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ.
This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions.
This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul.
"For the Saints are sent to us by God
as so many sermons.
We do not use them, it is they who move us
and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.”
Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975)
This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.

Thank you for sharing this novena. I do hope many will pray it. Novenas are powerful prayers. I wanted to share with you and your readers a post I just published on the importance of novenas. It is titled, “5 Hidden Benefits of Doing Novena Prayers”. Here’s the link:

Hi there and thank you – yes, you are spot on. So many have not discovered the great benefits of Novenas. Would you mind if I reblogged your post and created an image to promote it? Crediting your blog of course?
And many thanks for commenting – especially on Blessed Benedict who is relatively unknown out there in the greater world.
God bless you too – Ana
