word "Novena" comes from the Latin word 'novem' which means nine.
Hence, a Novena is generally made on nine (9) consecutive days - frequently
in preparation for a great feast day, or in some special circumstance of need,
etc. However, it could be spread over nine weeks, with each day of the Novena
being a Wednesday - the day traditionally associated with devotions to Saint
Joseph. It could also be spread over nine (9) months, with each day of the
Novena being a First Friday.
novenas contained in this site are meant to be done in nine (9) or thirty
(30) consecutive days or seven (7) consecutive Sundays.
from the Novenas, this site also contains thirteen (13) prayers which were
taken from the booklet "Devotions to Saint Joseph" by Brian Moore,
S.J., printed and published by the Society of Saint Paul.
