Novena for Women Impacted by Human Trafficking: Day 9


This week, Teresa Tomeo mentioned on her radio show that human trafficking is expected to triple during the Super Bowl. There’s not much I can do about that, but I can pray. Will you join me? Let’s pray together for the victims of human trafficking and for those who most need our prayers.

Novena Prayer to Saint Maria Goretti

Child of God,
You who at an early age knew life’s harshness and toil,
its sorrows and brief joys;
You who were poor, an orphan,
who loved your neighbour tirelessly,
making yourself a humble and attentive servant;
You who were kind and good, without pride,
who loved Love above all else;
You who shed your blood so as not to betray the Lord;
You who forgave your assassin wishing him in Paradise;
Intercede and pray for us to the Father,
so that we may consent to his holy will for us.
You who are God’s friend and see him face-to-face
obtain the grace we are seeking from you…
For all the victims of human trafficking and for those who most need our prayers.
We thank you Maria, for the love of God and neighbour that you have sown in our hearts. Amen.

  1. Hi Sarah,
    This novena was so divinely inspired…I missed a day or two but participated in all the others…I saw a NJ news clip about Chris Christie and the police stepping up all efforts to protect against this deplorable issue during the Superbowl…and I could not help but think that Maria Goretta was involved. All we need do is ask, and we shall receive. Thanks again for leading us in this prayer!
