Novena of Our Lady of Perpetual Succor

SIGN OF THE CROSS

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit

As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be

World without end, amen

AN ACT OF CONTRITION

My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.
In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good,
I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things.
I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more,
and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.
Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us.
In His name. My God have mercy.

FOR THE INTENTIONS OF THE HOLY FATHER

The Our Father

The Hail Mary

The Glory be …

LET US PRAY

Almighty and merciful God * Who in order to assist the human race * Has willed the blessed virgin Mary * To become the Mother of Thy only-begotten Son * Grant we beseech Thee * That by her intercession * We may avoid the contagion of sin * And serve Thee with a pure heart * Through the same Christ Our Lord * Amen

NOVENA PRAYERS

Mother of Perpetual Succour * Behold me a miserable sinner at thy feet * I have recourse to thee and put my trust in thee * O Mother of Mercy, have pity upon me * I hear thee called by all * The refuge and the hope of sinners; * be then my refuge and my hope * Succour me for the love of Jesus Christ *; Stretch forth thy hand to me, * a poor sinner, * who recommend and dedicate myself to thee * As thy perpetual servant * I bless and thank God for having in His Mercy given me this confidence in Thee * the pledge, as I believe of my eternal salvation*

Alas, too often in past times have I miserably fallen * Because I had not recourse to thee * I know that with thy help I shall conquer * I know that thou will help me * If I recommend myself to thee * But I fear lest in the occasion of failing * I should cease to call upon thee * And so should lose my soul * This then is the grace I seek from thee, * and I beg of thee, as far as I know how and can, * to obtain it for me * namely, in the assaults of hell,* always to have recourse to thee and to say to thee; * O Mary help me * Mother of Perpetual Succour, * Suffer me not to lose my God * Amen.

Priest : Mother of Perpetual Succour

People : Pray for thy Children.

Hail Mary……….

(Repeat three times)

LET US PRAY

Lord Jesus Christ,* who hast given us Thy Mother Mary, * whose wondrous image we venerate, * to our Mother,* Ever ready to succour us,* grant, we beseech Thee,* that we, who earnestly implore her maternal aid, * May deserve to enjoy perpetually the fruit of thy redemption * who lives and reigns world without end. Amen.

THE MEMORARE

Remember, O Most gracious Virgin Mary, * That never was it known,* That anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help * Or sought thy intercession,* was left unaided * Inspired with this confidence,* I fly to thee, O virgin of Virgins, my Mother * To thee I come, * before thee I stand, * sinful and sorrowful, * O Mother of the world Incarnate * Despise not my petitions, * but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen

PRAYER FOR THE SICK

Grant , we beseech Thee, O Lord God that these Thy servants may enjoy perpetual health of mind and body; and by the glorious intercession of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, be delivered from present sorrow and enjoy eternal gladness Through Christ our Lord. Amen

With those eyes so sadly sweet,

Source of all thy joy and woe;

What thy bliss, how deep thy sorrows,

Mother, thou alone can know

CLOSING PRAYER
