Novena in honour of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal




Come Holy Spirit

 

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful

and enkindle in them the fire of your love.

 

     V. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.

     R.  And you shall renew the face of the earth.

 

Let us pray,

O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did

instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that

in the same Spirit we may be truly wise and

ever rejoice in His consolation, through Christ

our Lord. Amen.

 

     V. O Mary conceived without sin,

     R.  Pray for us who have recourse to you.

 

 

A Prayer of Saint Louise

 

Most Holy Virgin,

I believe and confess

your holy and Immaculate Conception,

pure and without sin.

Most pure Virgin,

through your virginal purity,

your Immaculate Conception,

your privilege of being the Mother of God,

obtain for us from your Divine Son

humility, charity,

great purity of mind and body,

the gift of prayer, a holy life,

and a happy death.

 

 

Memorare

 

Remember O most compassionate Virgin

Mary, that never was it known,

that anyone who fled to your protection,

implored your assistance,

or sought you intercession

was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,

we fly unto you

O Virgin of Virgins our Mother.

To you we come,

before you we kneel,

sinful and sorrowful,

O Mother of the World Incarnate,

despise not our petitions

but in your clemency

hear and answer them. Amen.

 

 

Novena Prayer

 

O Immaculate Virgin Mary,

Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ,

with confidence we come

to implore your unfailing help.

Bearer of Life,

Mother of our Saviour,

give birth in our hearts

to Jesus your Son,

who forgives our sins

and brings healing to our lives.

Mother of the Church on earth,

hear the cry of the lowly and the poor

who hunger for Jesus, the Bread of Life,

and in your loving wisdom

make our prayers your own.

 

(Pause to make Your needs known to our Immaculate Mother)

 

Virgin gentle in mercy,

Queen of the universe,

cover us with the veil of your protection

and deliver us from the darkness of evil.

Teach us by prayer and self-control,

the meaning of truth and the beauty of love,

that with minds that are healed

and hearts that are pure,

we may come in the end to where you are

the Queen of Angels and of Saints. Amen

 

 

An Act of Consecration to Our Lady of the

Miraculous Medal

 

O Virgin Mother of God, Mary Immaculate,

at the message of an angel

you received the Word of God

in your heart and in your womb

and gave Life to the world.

O Temple of the Living God,

Throne of the Eternal King,

Sanctuary of the Holy Spirit,

we consecrate ourselves to you,

Lady of the Miraculous Medal.

May the Medal be a sign of your love for us

and a witness of our devotion to you.

May your promise to St. Catherine Labouré

bring grace to us and peace to all who say:

 

O Mary conceived without sin,

Pray for us who have recourse to you.
