“Behold thy mother!” John 19:27
Novena Prayer 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 Nine - 7th December
O Mother of the King of the Universe, most perfect member of the human race, "our tainted nature’s solitary boast," we turn to you as mother, advocate, and mediatrix. O Holy Mary, assist us in our present necessity. By your Immaculate Conception, O Mary conceived without sin, we humbly beseech you from the bottom of our heart to intercede for us with your Divine Son and ask that we be granted the favour for which we now plead.
(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 this novena with us!
Mass for The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary is tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. at St. Jude.
