NOVENA for the 200th ANNIVERSARY OF THE RESTORATION
7 August 2014 marks the 200th anniversary of the Restoration of the Jesuits. Over the past year we’ve been publishing material prepared in collaboration with Pray as you go and Thinking Faith to celebrate the lives of twelve noted Jesuits from the past 200 years as part of the Calendar that was also published. This month, we’re releasing an audio version of a Novena prepared by the Curia in Rome to commemorate the Restoration. Each section of the Novena is around 10 minutes long and uses Scripture and texts from Jesuit and wider Church tradition to highlight particular parts of the Jesuit charism particularly, and the religious life more generally.
You can listen to each day's prayer on this page, or you can download it and take it with you (see the arrow in the top right hand corner of the playlist below). If you would like to read as well as listen you can use this PDF:
