Novena Time!

14 Jul

Tomorrow starts a memorial novena to Mary Help of Christians.  It is a memorial one because the big novena is in May.  You say the novena from the 15th to the 23rd.  It involves three Our Fathers, three Hail Mary’s, three Glory Be’s, and a Mary most powerful virgin.  The last prayer is the only one that Don Bosco left for the Salesians that he wrote.

This time around, I will say this prayer for my vocation and the vocation of a close friend of mine.  Each day I plan on lifting up any intentions I am inspired to lift up in this novena.  Why don’t you give it a try? 

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

O Mary, most powerful Virgin,
great and illustrious defender of the Church,
wonderful Help of Christians,
formidable as an army in battle array,
you, who alone have over come
every heresy in the world,
in our anguish,
in our combats,
in our difficulties,
defend us from the enemy,
and, in the hour of our death,
receive our souls into Paradise.  Amen.

(only if in presence of Jesus) Blessed and praised, be the most holy and divine Sacrament

Mary Help of Christians, pray for us.
