A Novena to be Said Between 21 and 30 January in Honour of the Memory of His Most Christian Majesty King Louis XVI and His Majesty King Charles I

His Most Christian Majesty King Louis XVI was was murdered on 21 January 1793. His Majesty King Charles I was murdered on 30 January 1649. Please pray this novena for the good estate and virtue of all Christian Princes.

Ant. In the sight of the unwise he seemed to die, and his departure was taken for misery; but he is in peace.

Let us pray

Blessed Lord in whose sight the death of Thy Saints is precious; We magnify Thy Name for that abundant grace bestowed upon our late Martyred Sovereigns; by which they were enabled to so cheerfully follow the steps of their Blessed Master and Saviour, in a constant meek suffering of all barbarous indignities, and at last resisting unto blood; and even then, according to the same pattern, praying for their murderers. Let their memory, O Lord, be ever blessed among us, that we may follow the example of their patience, and charity. And grant that our land may be freed from the vengeance of their blood, and Thy mercy glorified in the forgiveness of our sins: and all for Jesus Christ his sake. Amen.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
