Novena –

Enrolled a few people in this novena. My friend and I visited the shrine years ago and they really do pray there!

I love that the Saints can be our friends and prayer partners.

Bl. George Matulaitis Novena

January 18 – 26

Feast Day: January 28

“Overcome evil with good.”

Taken from St. Paul the Apostle, this was the personal motto of a Marian priest when he was chosen to be the Bishop of Vilnius, Lithuania, as he rescued the order when it was down to its last member.

Dubbed the “Marian Renovator,” the Lithuanian-born Blessed George was the priest who envisioned religious working together with the laity for the good of the Church. The principles he wrote about are defining points of the Association of Marian Helpers.
