Live Mass Novena Online
P- Brothers and sisters, as children of our Blessed Mother, we are gathered before her miraculous picture to honour her and to pray for all our needs. unworthy children that we are, let us first of all ask God's mercy and pardon.
All - merciful Father, you sent your Divine Son, to redeem us by his death and resurrection, and to give us new life.
By this you make us your children, to love one another in Christ. How many times in the past, we have forgotten this sublime dignity. We have sinned againts our brothers and sisters; we have offended you. Merciful Father forgive us, repenting sincerely of our sins we ask your mercy; may we always live as your truly devoted children.
While you were on earth, dear Mother* you willingly shared in the sufferings of your son. Strengthened by your faith and confidence* in the fatherly love of God* you accepted the mysterious design of his will.
We too, have our crosses and trials. Sometimes they almost crush us to the ground. Dearest Mother* share with us your abundant faith and confidence in God. Make us aware that God never ceases to love us; that he answers all our prayers* in the way that is best for us. Strengthen our hearts to carry the cross* in the footsteps of your Divine Son. Help us to realize* that he who shares the cross of Christ* will certainly share his resurrection.
Dearest Mother, as we worry about our own problems* let us not forget the needs of others. You always loved others so much; help us to do the same. While praying for our intentions* and for the intentions of all here present at this novena* we earnestly ask you, our Mother* to help us comfort the sick and the dying* give hope to the poor and the unemployed* heal the broken-hearted* lighten the burden of the oppressed* teach justice to their oppressors and bring back to God all those who have offended him.
Dearest Mother, help us to avoid sin which separates us from our heavenly Father* and from one another. Full of trust in you* we place ourselves under the mantle of your maternal protection* and confidently hope for your powerful help. Amen.
Immaculate Mother, To you do we plead To ask God, Our Father, for help in our need.
Mother of Christ, Mother of Christ, What Shall I ask of thee?
Mother of Christ, Mother of Christ, I toss on a stormy sea, Oh, lift your child as a beacon light
to the port where I pain would be. And, Mother of Christ, Mother of Christ,
This do I ask of thee. When the voyage is o'er, O stand on the shore.
and show him at last to me.
