This novena may be made any time but it is especially good to honor the Mother of God in her Divine privilege by making the Novena between November 29-December 7, the eve of the Feast.
Thou art all fair, O Mary,
The Original Stain is not in thee.
Thou art the glory of Jerusalem,
Thou, the joy of Israel,
Thou, the great honor of our people
Thou, the advocate of sinners.
O Mary, O Mary,
Virgin most prudent,
Mother most merciful,
Pray for us,
Intercede for us with our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen
( The Raccolta )
O Virgin Immaculate, who wast pleasing in the Lord's sight and didst become His Mother,
look graciously upon the wretched who implore thy mighty patronage.
The wicked serpent, against whom the primal curse was hurled,
continues none the less to wage war
and to lay snares for the unhappy children of Eve.
Ah, do thou, our blessed Mother, our Queen and Advocate,
who from the first instant of thy Immaculate Conception
didst crush the head of our enemy,
receive the prayers that we unite single-heartedly to thine
and conjure thee to offer at the throne of God,
that we may never fall into the snares that are laid for us,
in such wise that we may all come to the haven of salvation;
and in the midst of so many dangers may Holy Church
and the fellowship of Christians everywhere sing once more
the hymn of deliverance, victory and peace. Amen.
To thee, O Holy Virgin Mother Mary, who wast never touched by any spot of Original or actual sin, I commend and entrust the purity of my heart.
Hail Mary. Amen
