St. Francis and St. Padre Pio 

are two much loved saints that bore the wounds of Christ.  

But how many know about Don Dolindo Ruotolo, 

a contemporary of Padre Pio?

"It is the duty of every Catholic to contribute to the salvation of souls,"

-Don. Ruotolo.

These words come from the living experience of the presence of Jesus in the prayer life of Dolindo Ruotolo and you are invited to make them your own as you pray the novena.

Don Ruotolo had extraordinary communications with Jesus throughout his heroic life, a life that was totally devoted to God and Holy Mother Mary. He referred to himself as “the Madonna’s little old man” and the Rosary was his constant companion.

As you can see from this novena much of what our Lord wants flies in the face of normal human inclination and reason. We can only rise to this level of thinking through the grace of God and the help of the Holy Spirit.

We must let go of our problems, stop worrying and trying to resolve them ourselves. We must believe, trust and allow our Lord to rescue us from ourselves and supply our wants, needs and resolve our problems as only He can.

Jesus, You take care of it, 

should be the first words that come to mind and flows from our lips. 

After all, we have tried to do things our way and look where it has got us.

Just do as the prayer says, open our hearts and minds in love and close our eyes in trust and ask Jesus to take care of it. 

He will.
