Today is the 8th Day for a Novena before the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.
Will you participate? Even if you are late to starting, that’s okay! Start anyway. And remember that there is no one way to observe this Novena. But here’s one way.
GIVE SOME THOUGHT TO AN INTENTION.
Suggestions for intentions:
- the overturning of Traditionis custodes.
- an increase of vocations to the priesthood.
- the miraculous healing of a sick loved one.
- conquering a principal fault.
- the return of a fallen away Catholic through practice by confession and Communion.
- that your bishop will be manifestly courageous and faithful.
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 unto You. Through the same Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end. Amen.
O Most gracious Virgin Mary, beloved Mother of Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, intercede with him for us that we be granted the favor which we petition for so earnestly in this novena… O Mother of the Word Incarnate, we feel animated with confidence that your prayers in our behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God. O Glorious Mother of God, in memory of your joyous Immaculate Conception, hear our prayers and obtain for us our petitions.
(State your intention here… )
O Mary of the Immaculate Conception, Mother of Christ, you had influence with your Divine Son while upon this earth; you have the same influence now in heaven. Pray for us and obtain for us from him the granting of my petition if it be the Divine Will. Amen.
