Novena of Grace

A novena made in honor of Saint Francis Xavier, which owes its origin to the saint himself, who promised Father Mastrilli, S.J., in 1633, that
"all who would earnestly ask his intercession with God for nine days in honor of his canonization would infallibly experience the effects of his great power in heaven and would realize whatever they asked that would contribute to their salvation."
It is now made publicly in many churches, 4 to 12 March.
