Novena to be Debt Free - part 8

God, our Father, you have granted to your church the gift of Gianna Beretta Molla. In her youth she lovingly sought you and drew other people to you, involving them, through apostolic
witness and Catholic Action, in the care of the sick and aged, to help and comfort them. We thank you for the gift of this young woman, so deeply committed to you.

Through her example, grant us the grace to consecrate our life to your service, for the joy of our brothers and sisters. May we become generous Christians at the service of our brothers and
sisters, especially those with whom you design to share your Cross. We beg you to grant to our families the serene and Christian presence of mothers committed to transform them into
cenacles of faith and love, rich with generous activity and sanctifying service.

Grant us the grace we seek and the joy to find an inspiration in Saint Gianna who, as model spouse and mother, after the example of Christ, gave up her life for the life of others. We offer this Novena for the sanctity of all life and for the intentions of all those who are praying with us.

Please join me in prayer to pay down my debt as soon as possible. And for others like me.
