“I am The Immaculate Conception.”
--Our Lady of Lourdes to
St. Bernadette Soubirous,
March 25, 1858
O God, who by the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, did prepare a worthy dwelling place for your Son, we beseech you that, as by the foreseen death of this, your Son, you did preserve her from all stain, so too you would permit us, purified through her intercession, to come to you.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Day One - 29th November
O most Holy Virgin, who was pleasing to the Lord and became His mother, immaculate in body and spirit, in faith and in love, look kindly on me as I implore your powerful intercession. O most Holy Mother, who by your blessed Immaculate Conception, from the first moment of your conception did crush the head of the enemy, receive our prayers as we implore you to present at the throne of God the favour we now request…
(Pause for personal intention)
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you.
O Virgin Mother of God, Mary Immaculate, Mother of Our Saviour, keep us close to you every moment of our lives. Amen.
Thank you for praying with us…join us tomorrow for day two of our novena!
