And for the last three days of the novena, I'm suggesting a focus on the particular concerns of the laity: today for the strengthening of our families, that those families broken might be reconciled and rejoined; that the ties that bind families together might be strengthened; that those isolated from their families might find a way back. The prayer:
Come, O Spirit of Counsel, help and guide me in all my ways, that I may always do Thy holy will. Incline my heart to that which is good; turn it away from all that is evil, and direct me by the straight path of Thy commandments to that goal of eternal life for which I long. Amen.
