54 Day Novena PDF - Overview
54 Day Novena is also known as 54 Day Rosary Novena in high quality, Originated in the late 19th century in Naples, Italy, It is attributed to a young girl suffering from an illness thought to be incurable. Calling on Mary for help, Mary appeared to her and promised her healing if she prayed three novenas. The girl did so, and was miraculously healed.
The 54 Day Novena is a beautiful devotion that consists of saying a Rosary for 54 days in a row. A novena means praying 9 days in a row, so the 54 Day Novena is, in essence, 6 novenas: the first 3 novenas over the first 27 days are said in petition – asking Mary for her prayers for a particular intention. The remaining 3 novenas said over the last 27 days are in thanksgiving, whether or not you received what you brought to prayer.
