Novena to our Lady Help of the Christians ~ Day 2 ~


Most Holy and Immaculate Virgin, Help of Christians, we place ourselves under thy motherly protection.
Throughout the Church's history thou have helped Christians in times of trial, temptation and danger.
Time and time again, thou have proven to be the Refuge of sinners, the Hope of the hopeless, the Consoler of the afflicted, and the Comforter of the dying.
We promise to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ, thy Holy Son and our Lord and Savior , to proclaim His Good News of God's love for all people, and to work for peace and justice in our world.
With faith in thy intercession, we pray for the Church, for our family and friends, for the poor and abandoned, and all the dying.
Grant, O Holy Mary, Help of Christians, the graces in which we stand in need.
( here our prayer petition )
May we serve Lord Jesus with fidelity and love until death.
Help us and our loved ones to attain the boundless joy of being forever with our Father in Heaven. Amen

O Holy Mary, Mother of God, Help to Christians, as thou are above all creatures in Heaven and on earth, more glorious than the Cherubim, more noble than any here below. Our Lord Jesus Christ has given thee to His people, firm bulwark and protectress, to shield and save sinners who fly to thee.
Therefore, O Holy Lady, all-embracing refuge, we solemnly recall thy sweet protection, and beg the Christ forever for His mercy. Amen.


O Mary, Help of Christians, 
show thyself the Protectress of the Catholic Church 
and destroy the wicked designs of her enemies, 
especially in these times of persecution . 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.
