February 3 – February 11
The Opening Prayer
Happy are you, holy Virgin Mary, deserving of all praise.
From you rose the sun of justice, Christ the Lord.
The Novena Prayer
Most Holy Mother Mary, at Lourdes you asked us to do penance and to pray for the conversion of sinners. Obtain for each of us the grace of true repentance. Help those for whom we pray, and especially those who most need God’s mercy. Your Divine Son so loves every soul that He gave His life to pay the price for our redemption. Help us to return His love by making the sacrifices needed to keep his commandments.
Most Holy Mother, you offered your Divine Son to the Eternal Father when you presented Him in the temple;
offer us to the Father as your other children;
watch over us and guide us.
Blessed Mother, obtain for me the grace I most need, and especially these favors that I ask in this Novena, if they be in keeping with God’s will. Amen.
We pray for the prosperity of our parish and school, and that we may live the virtues in our daily lives, shedding our light and love on those around us. Amen.
The Prayer of Thanksgiving
In thanks, we promise to follow in your virtues, that we may one day share your glory. Our Lady of Lourdes, Mother of Christ, you had influence with your divine son while upon earth. You have the same influence now in Heaven.
Pray for us; obtain for us from your Divine Son our special requests if it be the Divine Will. Amen.
