How to make a Novena to Saint Alexius?

Oración a San Alejo para el amorMany people wonder what a novena is. This word novena comes from “novem” which is a Latin word meaning nine, this type of prayer consists of nine days of prayer and meditation, usually to ask God and some saints, also angels, special requests.

Who is Saint Alexius?

Saint Alexius of Rome was born in Rome in the 4th century, the son of Eufemianus and Agale. On his wedding night he renounced marriage to consecrate himself to God and travelled to the city of Edessa. He lived there for 17 years, begging for alms. When he returned to Rome, he was not recognised and continued to beg and teach catechism. He died in 417, at which time his identity was revealed and he was recognised. His basilica is on the Aventine Hill.

What is the novena to St Alexius for?

Novenas are often used to ask specific saints to pray for us. The novena to St Jude, for example, is prayed to ask St Jude Thaddeus to intercede on behalf of a request that seems particularly difficult.

In the case of the novena to St Alexius, it usually works to drive away people, lovers, black magic, etc. However, this type of prayer can be adapted for many things depending on what you need, there is also the novena to St Francis of Assisi which is very powerful.

Novenas are an ancient tradition dating back to the days of the apostles. Jesus told his disciples to pray together after his Ascension, so they went to an upper room with the Blessed Virgin Mary (Acts 1:14) and prayed together for nine days. Learn more about novenas in this video, it explains why you should do them, it also has a lot of other relevant information, enjoy.

These nine days of constant prayer by the apostles under Jesus’ leadership led to Pentecost. This is when the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples as “tongues of fire” (Acts 2:1-4). This pattern of 9 days of prayer is the basis of the novenas we pray today. The novena is therefore an imitation of the Lord’s command to the Apostles when He prayed for 9 days in expectation of the coming of the Holy Spirit.

All you need to do is to say the daily prayers with a sincere heart. It is not necessary to pray at the same time every day (although you can), nor to fast, nor to pray the rosary in addition to the novena; however, you can do all these things in addition to praying, but they are not necessary. Novenas should not be seen as magical incantations that guarantee desired results. God controls the universe and we certainly do not control God. He is not a genie in a bottle, but a loving Father in heaven.

Oh, glorious Saint Alejo!
Holy blessed,
That inspired by the Lord
You moved away from family life,
And knew to give up everything
To live alone and begging.
Saint Alejo blessed
You who have the power to drive away
All the evil that surrounds the servants of the Lord,
I beg you to protect me and defend
And give me energy, strength and courage … Kindred Saint Alejo,
You who found favor before Mary,
Today I need your help
Do not leave me abandoned
With all humility I beg you
That keep the enemy and evil from my side.
Get away from Satan,
The liar, the ruin and the treacherous,
Of curses, of evil eyes and of evil tongues,
The traitor, the slanderer and the malicious,
Keep me from everyone who wants
To see me surrendered and sunk.
Get away from envy,
Of evil and injustice,
Keep me from jealousy and resentment,
Of rejection and loneliness,
Hide me where you can not find me
Those who want to cause my doom.
O Glorious Saint Alejo!
Called “the Man of God”
Come to Jesus and Mary,
So that with His Divine Kindness
Cover me with all your goods,
To be guided and delivered
Of all spiritual and earthly evil,
And help me get
The grace that humbly
Today I am asking you:
(Make the request)
Saint Alejo blessed:
By the Blessed Virgin Mary,
For his beloved Son Jesus Christ
And by the grace of the Holy Spirit,
have mercy on me
And do not neglect my request. Amen.
Pray three Our Fathers,
Three Hail Marys and three Glories.
Praying and praying several times a day
Until the results are noticed.

In the name of the father, of the son, of the Holy Spirit, amen.

Saint Alejo blessed that you drive away people who do not suit my life, I ask you today to allow your protection to me and my family, that through you you can ask our Lord God for his blessing for all of us.
