“I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.” Genesis 3:15
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 Seven - 5th December
O Immaculate Virgin, Mother of God, and
my mother, from the sublime heights of your dignity turn your merciful eyes upon me while I, full of confidence in your bounty and keeping in mind your Immaculate conception and fully conscious of your power, beg of you to come to our aid and ask your Divine Son to grant the favour we earnestly seek in this novena... if it be beneficial for our immortal souls and the souls for whom we pray.
(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.
Thank you for praying with us…join us tomorrow for day eight!
