Little Chaplet of the Twelve Privileges of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary

( composed by Saint Andrew Avellino )

By a Brief of June 26, 1860, the Sovereign Pontiff Pope Pius IX granted to all the faithful the indulgence of 300 days, who, once a day, devoutly and with contrite heart, say the following little Chaplet; and The plenary indulgence once a month, to be gained by saying it every day for the space of one month, provided that on any one day at pleasure in the same month, being truly penitent, having Confessed and Communicated, they shall visit some one church or public oratory, and there pray to God for concord among Christians princes, for the extirpation of heresies, and for the exaltation of our holy Mother the Church.

The Chaplet
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Incline unto my aid, O God.
O Lord, make speed to help me .

I. Hail to thee, purest, holiest Mother of Jesus.
We humbly pray thee, by thy Predestination, whereby thou wast even from all eternity elected Mother of God;
by thy Immaculate Conception, whereby thou wast Conceived without stain of original sin;
by thy most perfect resignation, whereby thou wast ever conformed to the will of God;
and lastly by thy consummate holiness, whereby throughout thy whole life thou didst never commit one single fault:
we pray thee to become our advocate with our Lord, that He may pardon so many sins of ours, which are the cause of His wrath.
And Thou, O Father Almighty, by the merits of these privileges vouchsafed to this Thy well-beloved Daughter, hear her supplications for us, and pardon us her clients.
Spare, O Lord, spare Thy people.

One Pater, four Ave's, and one Gloria. 
By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception deliver us, glorious Virgin Mary. Amen

II. Hail to thee, purest, holiest Mother of Jesus.
We humbly pray thee, by thy most holy Annunciation, when thou didst conceive the Divine Word in thy womb;
by thy most happy delivery, in which thou didst experience no pain;
by thy perpetual virginity, which thou didst unite with the fruitfulness of a mother;
and lastly, by the bitter martyrdom when thou didst undergo in our Saviour's death:
we pray thee to become our Mediatrix, that we may reap the fruit of the precious death of thy Son.
And Thou, O divine Son, by the merits of these privileges granted to Thy well-beloved Mother, hear our supplications and forgive our sins.
Spare, O Lord, spare Thy people. Amen

One Pater, four Ave's, and one Gloria.
By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception deliver us, glorious Virgin Mary. Amen

III. Hail to thee, purest, holiest Mother of Jesus.
We humbly pray thee by the joys which thou didst feel in thy heart at the Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus Christ;
by thy Assumption into Heaven, whereby thou wast exalted above all the choirs of the angels;
by the glory which God has given thee to be Queen of all Saints;
and lastly, by that most powerful intercession, whereby thou art able to obtain all that thou dost request
we pray thee obtain for us true love of God.
And Thou, O Holy Ghost, by the merits of these privileges of Thy well-beloved Spouse, hear her supplications, and pardon us her children. Amen.
Spare, O Lord, spare Thy people.

One Pater, four Ave's, and one Gloria. 
By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception deliver us, glorious Virgin Mary. Amen

Here, at pleasure, the Litany of Loretto may be said, to gain another Indulgence of 300 days. See above. Afterwards add:
Thy Conception, Virgin Mother of God, brought tidings of joy to the whole world, for from thee arose the Son of Justice, Christ our God; Who, loosing the Curse, gave the blessing, and confounding death, granted unto us eternal life.
In thy Conception, O Mary the Virgin, thou wast Immaculate.
Pray for as to the Father, whose Son Jesus, conceived of the Holy Ghost, thou didst bring forth.

Let us pray.
God of mercy, God of pity, God of tenderness, Who hast compassion upon the affliction of Thy people, and didst say to the angel smiting Thy people, "Stay thy hand;" for the love of that glorious Mother, whose precious breasts Thou didst sweetly suck, as the antidote of our sins, grant us the help of Thy grace, that we may be safely freed from every evil, and mercifully preserved from the attack of all destruction. Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen. 

The Feast of Divine Maternity of the Holy Mother of God

The Feast of the Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary was instituted in 1932 by Pope Pius XI. The Feast is a double of the second class and so is celebrated today, in white vestments. The Feast of the Maternity of the Holy Mother of God was instituted in honor of the fifteenth centenary of the Council of Ephesus where Mary was defined as Mother of God.

The Church celebrates the Divine Maternity, which was conferred on a mere creature, and which made her the co-operatrix with Jesus in the great work of man's salvation.

But it is today, that we, the children of the Roman Church, must pour forth all the love of our hearts for the Virgin-Mother, and rejoice with her in the exceeding happiness she feels at having given birth to her and our Lord. During Advent, we contemplated her as pregnant with the world's salvation; we proclaimed the glory of that Ark of the New Covenant, whose chaste womb was the earthly paradise, chosen by the King of Ages for His dwelling-place. Now, she has brought Him forth, the Infant-God; she adores Him, Him who is her Son. She has the right to call Him, her Child; and He, God as He is, calls her in strictest truth, his Mother. Let us not be surprised, therefore, at the enthusiasm and profound respect, wherewith the Church extols the Blessed Virgin, and her prerogatives.

Mary is the Mother of God!--It is the mystery, whose fulfillment the world, without knowing it, was awaiting for four thousand years. It is the work, which, in God's eyes, was incomparably greater than that of the creation of a million new worlds, for such a creation would cost Him nothing; He has but to speak, and all whatsoever He wills is made. But, that a creature should become Mother of God, He has had, not only to suspend the laws of nature by making a Virgin Mother, but also to put Himself in a state of dependence upon the happy creature He chose for His Mother. He had to give her rights over Himself, and contract the obligation of certain duties towards her. He had to make Her his Mother, and Himself her Son.

Novena to our Lady Undoer Knots ~ Day 4 ~

Novena prayers

We begin with our daily prayers, making the Sign of the Cross and praying the Act of Contrition so that God will enter our hearts, and he will brings us near to the Virgin Mary.

The Sign of the Cross : In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Act of Contrition : O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee,
and I detest all my sins, because of Thy just punishments,
but most of all because they are offending Thee, my God,
who are All-good and deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy Grace to sin no more
and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen

Blessed Holy Virgin Mary, the one who unties the knots, in marriage, in people and of nations, I offer thee this Novena , humbly requesting the following prayer intentions ...

Day Four 

Bible reading:
« 15 When the angels had left them and gone back to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go as far as Bethlehem and see what the Lord has made known to us.” 16 So they came hurriedly and found Mary and Joseph with the baby lying in the manger. 17 On seeing this they related what they had been told about the child, 18 and all were astonished on hearing the shepherds.19 As for Mary, she treasured all these messages and continually pondered over them.» (Luke 2, 15-19)

Brief Reflection:
They went to Bethlehem, where they found the Child, “The word made flesh”, the only Truth. Let us walk through our desert, that with the guidance of the Archangel Raphael, that we may come closer to Mary Mother of the Church, and with her to Jesus. Little by little, the knots of error that make us prisoners will be untied. “The Truth shall set us free”. Let us walk in confidence towards our liberation.”

Brief meditation: meditate with one decade of the Holy Rosary: One Our Father, 10 Hail Mary’s, One Glory be and the Prayer to “The Virgin Mary untier of Knots”

Our Father Who art in Heaven , hallowed be Thy name;
Thy Kingdom come , Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the Power and the Kingdom and the Glory , forever and ever .Amen.

The Hail Mary (x10)

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory Be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost,
as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen

`Prayer to the Virgin Mary Untier of Knots´

Holy Mary, full of the presence of God, during thy life thou accepted with great humility the holy will of the Father and the legacy of thy Son our Lord Jesus Christ, and evil never dared to entangle thee with its confusion. Since then thou have interceded for all of our difficulties as thou did at the wedding feast of Cana. With all simplicity and with patience, thou have given us an example of how to untangle the knots in our complicated lives. By being our mother forever thou arrange and make clear the path that unites us to Our Lord.

Holy Mary, Mother of God and ours, with thy maternal Immaculate Heart, untie the knots that bring so much sorrows in our lives. We ask thee to receive into thy Immaculate hands this humble prayer intention.. and deliver us from the chains and confusion that restrain us.
Blessed Virgin Mary, through thy grace, thy intercession and by thy example, deliver us from evil, and untie the knots that keep us from being united to God. So that free of all confusion and error, we may find Him in all things, keep Him in our hearts, and serve Him always in our brothers and sisters. Mother of Good Counsel pray for us.

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

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.
