Novena to Our Lady of Lourdes ( Feast 11 February )

Be blessed, O most pure Virgin,
for having vouchsafed to manifest your shining with life,
sweetness and beauty,
in the Grotto of Lourdes,
saying to the child, St. Bernadette:
"I am the Immaculate Conception."
A thousand times we congratulate you
upon your Immaculate Conception.
And now, O ever Immaculate Virgin,
Mother of mercy, Health of the sick,
Refuge of sinners,
Comforter of the afflicted,
you know our wants,
our troubles,
our sufferings;
deign to cast upon us a look of mercy.
By appearing in the Grotto of Lourdes,
you were pleased to make it a privileged sanctuary,
whence you dispense your favours,
and already many have obtained the cure of their infirmities,
both spiritual and physical.
We come, therefore,
with the most unbounded confidence
to implore your maternal intercession.
Obtain for us, O loving Mother,
the granting of our request...
(Make your request here...)
Through gratitude for your favours,
we will endeavor to imitate your virtues,
that we may on day share your glory.
Our Lady of Lourdes,
Mother of Christ,
you had influence with your divine son while upon earth.
You have the same influence now in Heaven.
Pray for us;
obtain for us from your Divine Son
our special requests if it be the Divine Will. Amen.
Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.Ámen
Saint Bernadette, pray for us.Amen
(Recite the appropriate daily prayer..)

Day One

O Mary Immaculate,
Our Lady of Lourdes,
Virgin and Mother,
Queen of heaven,
chosen from all eternity
to be the Mother of the Eternal Word
and in virtue of this title
preserved from original sin,
we kneel before you as did little Bernadette at Lourdes
and pray with childlike trust in you
that as we contemplate your glorious appearance at Lourdes,
you will look with mercy on our present petition
and secure for us a favourable answer
to the request for which we are making this novena...
(Make your request here...)
O Brilliant star of purity,
Mary Immaculate,
Our Lady of Lourdes,
glorious assumption,
triumphant in your coronation,
show unto us the mercy of the Mother of God,
Virgin Mary,
Queen and Mother,
be our comfort, hope, strength,
and consolation. Amen.
Our Lady of Lourdes,
pray for us.Amen
Saint Bernadette,
pray for us.Amen

Eternal Father, I offer You the most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus Christ , in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the Universal Church, for those in my own home and in my family. Amen

WEAR THE GARMENT OF GRACE ~~ BROWN SCAPULAR ~~


O Mary, Queen and Mother of Carmel, I come today to consecrate myself to thee, for my whole life is but a small return for the many graces and blessings that have come from God to me through thy immaculate hands.

Since thou look with special kindness on those who wear thy Scapular, I implore thee to strengthen my weakness with thy power, to enlighten the darkness of my mind with thy wisdom, and to increase in me Faith, Hope and Charity that I may repay each day my debt of humble homage to thee.

May thy Holy Scapular bring me thy special protection in my daily struggle to be faithful to thy Divine Son and to thee. May it separate me from all that is sinful in life and remind me constantly of my duty to imitate thy virtues.

From now on, I shall strive to live in God's Presence, and offer all to Jesus through thee. Dearest Holy Mother, support me by thy never-failing love and lead me to paradise through the merits of Christ and thy own intercession. Amen.
