11 Word Novena

Salve all y’all from Wintery Winnipeg.

We are always asking God for one or another favor. "I need", "I want". But what if there was a way for us to know what truly is God's will for us?

Don Dolindo Ruotolo, a contemporary of St. Padre Pio has relayed for us a more powerful Novena, given to him by Jesus himself, and is only 11 words long!

Jesus himself told Don Dolindo:

Why do you confuse yourselves by worrying? Leave the care of your affairs to me and everything will be peaceful. I say to you in truth that every act of true, blind, complete surrender to me produces the effect that you desire and resolves all difficult situations. (…)

A thousand prayers do not equal one act of abandonment; don’t ever forget it. There is no better novena than this: "O Jesus, I abandon myself to you. Jesus, you take over".


It implies and entails a spiritual struggle to seek God’s will, the battle to give up my self-will and ultimately, abandon my own will to surrender myself to the will of God.
