"Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done unto me according to thy word." Luke 1:38
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 Two - 30th November
O Mary, ever blessed Virgin, Mother of God, Queen of angels and of saints, we salute you with the most profound veneration and filial devotion as we contemplate your holy Immaculate Conception. We thank you for your maternal protection and for the many blessings that we have received through your wondrous mercy and most powerful intercession. In all our necessities we have recourse to you with unbounded confidence.
O Mother of Mercy, we beseech you now to hear our prayer and to obtain for us of your Divine Son the favour that we so earnestly request in this novena...
(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 three!
