NOVENA PRAYERS

 

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Come Holy Spirit fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created. And you shall renew the face of the earth.

 

Let us pray

 

O God who did instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us by the same Spirit to be truly wise and ever rejoice in his consolation, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

O Mary, conceived without original sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

Memorare

Remember O most compassionate Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your assistance, or sought your intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother. To you I come; before you I kneel, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your clemency hear and answer them. Amen.

 

Novena Prayer

O Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ and my Mother, penetrated with the most lively confidence in your all-powerful and never-failing intercession, manifested so often through the Miraculous Medal. I, you loving and trustful child, implore you to obtain for me the graces and favours I ask during this Novena, if they benefit my soul and the soul for whom I pray. (Here privately form your prayer requests).

You know, O Mary, how often my soul has been the sanctuary of your Son, who hates iniquity. Obtain for me then, a deep hatred of sin and that purity of heart which will attach me to God alone so that my every thought, word and deed may tend to His greater glory. Obtain for me also a spirit of prayer and self denial, that I may recover by penance what I have lost by sin, and at length attain to that blessed abode where you are the Queen of angels and of all people. Amen.

 

Act of Consecration to our Lady of the Miraculous Medal

 

O Virgin Mother of God, Mary Immaculate, I dedicate and consecrate myself to you, under the title of our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. May this medal be for me a sure sign of your affection and a constant reminder of my duties towards thee. Ever while wearing it, may I be blessed by your loving protection and preserved by the grace of your Son. O most powerful Virgin, Mother of my Saviour, keep me close to you every moment of my life. Obtain for me, your child, the grace of a happy death; so that, in union with you, I may enjoy the bliss of heaven for ever. Amen.

O Mary, conceived without original sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
