The Novena to St. Maria Goretti is a nine-day prayer devotion seeking the intercession of St. Maria Goretti, who is known as the patron saint of girls.

She was a young Italian girl who, in the early 20th century, chose to forgive her attacker after he fatally injured her.

Her courage, faith, and forgiveness have inspired many. The novena asks for her help and guidance, especially for young girls, to lead a pure and faithful life, to overcome difficulties, and to grow in love and forgiveness.

Saint Maria Goretti, strengthened by God’s grace, you did not hesitate, even at the age of eleven, to sacrifice life itself to defend your virginal purity.

Look graciously on the unhappy human race that has strayed far from the path of eternal salvation.

Teach us all, and especially our youth, the courage and promptness that will help us avoid anything that could offend Jesus.

Obtain for me a great horror of sin, so that I may live a holy life on earth and win eternal glory in heaven.

Please intercede for me in obtaining the favor I now ask. Amen.

(Mention your request).

(Recite one Our Father, one Hail Mary, one Glory Be). Say this novena nine times in a row for nine days in a row.
