Novena to Our Lady Of Guadalupe ~ Day 1 ~



Our Lady of Guadalupe,
According to your message in Mexico
I venerate you as "the Virgin Mother
Of the true God for whom we live,
The Creator of all the world,
Maker of Heaven and earth."
In spirit I kneel before your most holy Image
Which you miraculously imprinted
Upon the cloak of the Indian Juan Diego,
And with the faith
Of the countless numbers of pilgrims
Who visit your shrine,
I beg you for this favor:
To be a generous, self-sacrificing,
Faithful Marian Catechist all the days of my life.

Remember, O Immaculate Virgin,
The words you spoke to your devout client,
"I am a merciful Mother to you
And to all your people
Who love me and trust in me And invoke my help.
I listen to their lamentations and solace
All their sorrows and their sufferings."
I beg you to be a merciful Mother to me,
Because I sincerely love you and trust in you
And invoke your help.
I entreat you, Our Lady of Guadalupe,
To grant my request,
If this should be the Will of God,
In order that I may
"Bear witness to your love, your compassion,
Your help and protection."
Do not forsake me in my needs. Amen.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us. Hail Mary ..(3 times)

First Day

Dearest Lady of Guadalupe,
Fruitful Mother of holiness,
Teach me your ways
Of gentleness and strength.
Hear my humble prayer
Offered with heartfelt confidence
To beg this petition (here our prayer intention).

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory.

Introduction to Novena to our Lady of Guadalupe


Most welcome in praying a Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe.

At the time Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to Juan Diego in Mexico in 1531, the Aztec culture of death was killing 20% of Mexican children. Her miraculous presence crushed the head of death in the Aztec culture, saving thousands from a violent sacrificial death. It was through the conversion of hearts–9 million in ten years–that this miracle occurred! Today, 25% of our children are sacrificed through the violence of abortion. The Aztecs participated in human sacrifice because they lived in constant fear and despair, always anticipating the wrath of gods who would devour them. The fear that forced the Aztecs into human sacrifice is similar to the fears that drive so many today to abortion: fear that children will devour our rights, freedom, wealth, time, autonomy or fear that originates from utter despair and hopelessness.

Yet, through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe we have HOPE! Her appearance and miraculous image led to the conversion of millions, defeating the Aztec culture of death, and our intercession to her today will bring new hope to our world through conversion, defeating the culture of death that we now face. Our Lady of Guadalupe told Juan Diego, “I am the ever-virgin Mary, Mother of the true God who gives life and maintains its existence.” Our Lady of Guadalupe, “the Star of the New Evangelization”, will transform hearts, converting our culture to new life and hope through our Lord, Jesus Christ.

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.
