54 Day Novena


54 Day Novena

The 54 Day novena, also known as the irresistible novena, was composed by Blessed Bartolo Longo in July 1879, which he said himself while he had typhoid fever. The text was inspired by visions of a miraculous portrait of Our Lady of the Rosary, to which the Novena was first dedicated in Pompei.

The full Prayer consists in praying the mysteries of the Holy Rosary, followed by various prayers. In this version, the Luminous Mysteries are included. It takes 54 days altogether to pray.
