OPENING RITE
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the
Holy Spirit. Amen.

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name;
Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in
heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive
us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass
against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver
us from evil. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed
art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy
womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us
sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy
Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall
be, world without end. Amen.

Novena Prayer

I will always honor, thank and adore the Lord
God who created the animals and saw that each
species was good. I love the God who made human
beings in His own image and likeness and
set them over the whole world, to have dominion
over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of
the air, and over the cattle, and over all the
earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps
upon the earth. (Gen 1:26) By my honorable
conduct as a hunter, I will give a good example
and I will teach new hunters the same principles
of honor, so that each new generation can show
respect for God, other hunters and the animals,
and enjoy the dignity of the hunt.

Closing Rite

May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil, and
bring us unto everlasting life. Amen.
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the
Holy Spirit. Amen.

Lord, you spoke to St. Hubert and converted
him to You during a stag hunt. You changed him
into a hunter of souls, yet you continued to use
his skills as a hunter to open minds to your Gospel.
I ask that you make me into a hunter of
souls above all other hunting activities. May I
look for the opportunities to speak of You and
Your salvation. Let the hunting camp itself be a
place that uplifts the soul. May my time alone
be an opportunity to pray and listen to You.
May all the actions of the rest of my life be a
constant hunt for You, for the opportunities you
give me to evangelize, and to target the souls
most in need of Your love.
