Prayer:

Heavenly 14 Holy Helpers, a radiant assembly of saints chosen by God to intercede for humanity, we turn to you with reverence and devotion. As a collective force, you offer aid in times of physical and spiritual affliction. Saintly companions, we beseech your intercession for protection and healing against ailments and challenges that beset us. Saint George, Saint Blaise, Saint Pantaleon, Saint Vitus, Saint Erasmus, Saint Christopher, Saint Giles, Saint Cyriacus, Saint Achatius, Saint Dionysius, Saint Eustace, Saint Catherine of Alexandria, Saint Margaret of Antioch, and Saint Barbara, united in heavenly compassion, guide us through trials and tribulations. May your combined intercession bring comfort to the suffering, strength to the weak, and spiritual fortitude to all who call upon your holy names. Amen.

Scripture:

Psalm 51:10 

“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”

 

14 Holy Helpers a group of saints invoked with special confidence. Ultimately, they have proven themselves efficacious helpers in adversity and difficulties. Also, known and venerated under the name Fourteen Holy Helpers. Though each has a separate feast or memorial day. The group collectively venerated on 8 August. However, this feast was dropped and suppressed in the 1969 reform of the calendar.

14 Holy Helpers are invoked as a group because of the Black Plague. Which devastated Europe from 1346 to 1349. Among its symptoms were the tongue turning black, a parched throat, violent headache, fever, and boils on the abdomen. Also, it attacked without warning, robbed its victims of reason, and killed within a few hours. Consequently, many died without the last Sacraments.

Invocation of the Holy Helpers

Fourteen Holy Helpers, who served God in humility and confidence on earth and are now in the enjoyment of His beatific vision in Heaven; because thou persevered till death thou gained the crown of eternal life. Remember the dangers that surround us in this vale of tears, and intercede for us in all our needs and adversities. Amen.

Fourteen Holy Helpers, select friends of God, I honor thee as mighty intercessors.  Also, I come with filial confidence to thee in my needs, for the relief of which I have undertaken to make this novena. Help me by thy intercession to placate God’s wrath. I have provoked Him by my sins, and aid me in amending my life and doing penance. Also, I ask you to obtain for me the grace to serve God with a willing heart, to be resigned to His holy will, to be patient in adversity and to persevere unto the end, so that, having finished my earthly course, I may join thee in Heaven, there to praise for ever God, who is wonderful in His Saints. Amen.

The Fourteen Holy Helpers are;

Saints Acacius, Barbara, Blaise, and Christopher;                                Also, Sts Cyriacus, Catherine of Alexandria, and Denis;                          And, Sts  Erasmus of Formiae, Eustace, George and Giles;                    Also, Sts Margaret of Antioch, Pantaleon, and Vitus.

Saint Christopher and St Giles were invoked against the plague itself. Saint Denis was prayed to for relief from headache. St Blaise for ills of the throat. Saint Elmo, for abdominal maladies. St Barbara for fever, and Saint Vitus against epilepsy. Saint Pantaleon was the patron of physicians. St Cyriacus invoked against temptation on the deathbed. And Saints Christopher, Barbara, and Catherine for protection against a sudden and unprovided-for death. Saint Giles was prayed to for a good confession, and Saint Eustace as healer of family troubles. Also, domestic animals  attacked by the plague, and so Saints George, Elmo, Pantaleon, and Vitus invoked for their protection. And Saint Margaret of Antioch is the patron of safe childbirth.
