A novena is defined as a tradition of devotional prayer that lasts for nine consecutive days. Novenas are used to pray for a specific purpose or can be used in preparation for a large feast/event.
Novenas are broken down into four main categories: preparation, petition, indulgence and mourning. Preparation novenas are used when there is an important upcoming spiritual event such as a feast or wedding. Petition novenas are used when you are praying for God or a saint to intervene and help guide you through a troubling time in your life. Indulgence novenas are used when someone is looking to make up for past sins that they may have committed. Lastly mourning novenas are used before the burial of a loved one.
