New year, new you.” This is a common quip we see all over social media at the start of a new year. But what if we make the challenge a bit deeper—not only looking at it in terms of diets, exercise plans, a really good haircut, or home office organization, but our whole person?

If you are looking for whole person newness, have we’ve got the support team for you!

For the small price of earnest prayer, all of these saints will happily intercede for you in the courts of heaven to fulfill the Lord’s promise: that you will be made entirely new. Each experienced radical transformation in their lives in very diverse ways: from party boy St. Francis to the murderous St. Vladimir, all of these sinners were touched by Christ so powerfully that they became saints. And they want the same transformation for you!

St. Mary Magdalene, St. Augustine, and St. Ignatius of Loyola are some of the most well-known sinners-turned-saints on this list. I am here to tell you that Maggie, Auggie, and Iggie have your good at heart—whatever your struggle in your journey towards full conversion and fullness of life, they can help! They all experienced the ups and downs in the journey of conversion. And all of these saints are here to be companions and guides on the journey!

To top it off, we have the ultimate intercessor in Mary. Mary, Star of the Sea, who can guide even the most errant ship to the heavenly shores.

Try praying this novena today. And maybe look up these saints and read about their lives. They will inspire you and encourage you to see that even in the darkest corners of your heart, it is absolutely true that the light of Christ can come in and make all—yes, all—things new!
