Anonymous asked:Hi, I'm a senior in high school waiting to hear back from my dream university, Univ of Notre Dame. I would like to know what novena would be good to pray. I want to pray to guide the admissions counselors to accepting me and keeping me in their mind. I'd love to go to a Catholic university. Thank you so much.
I cannot tell you how excited I am to get this message, because I go to ND! Please know that I will be praying for you. Notre Dame is one of the greatest blessings I’ve received, and I will pray that you find an even greater sense of peace and joy at the university you end up at!
Here are a couple of suggestions:
- This novena to St. Joseph of Cupertino.
- Here is a novena to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Notre Dame’s namesake!
- Finally, this has a little biography of St. Andre Bessette, the first saint of the Congregation of the Holy Cross, the religious order which founded ND. There is a prayer to ask for his intercession at the end!
Please keep this in mind: even if you do not end up at Notre Dame, have faith that God is working in your life and has a plan laid out for you that is better than you could ever imagine.
Pax et bonum, friend.
(Please don’t hesitate to message me off of anon if you are accepted and have any questions about ND! I’d be happy to give you my personal URL so I can help you in whatever way possible.)
