On Saturdays at noon, enter into a Marian devotion via live stream. We will be praying the Regina Caeli (through May 30, then the Angelus), the Rosary, and conclude with a novena prayer to Our Mother of Perpetual Help, whose feast day is June 27.
This will be for 9 Saturdays in a row, plus on her feast day.
V. The Angel of the Lord declared to Mary:
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit. (Hail Mary . . . )
V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord:
R. Be it done unto me according to Thy word. (Hail Mary. . .)
V. And the Word was made Flesh:
R. And dwelt among us. (Hail Mary. . .)
V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God,
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray: Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts; that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection, through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.
MOST HOLY MOTHER of our Savior, thou alone hast loved Him worthily for thou hast not loved Him in word only, but in deed and in truth; thou hast given the great proof that this love demands, for thou has loved us with a love which next to His own, never had an equal and which brought thee to sacrifice for our happiness all that made thine own, even thy JESUS Himself I can never be dear to thee unless I also love my neighbor with a sincere and generous love. Help me to do so, O Mother of Perpetual Help. Obtain for me a heart like to that of JESUS and thy own, so that I may be meek and humble, patient, compassionate, more ready to forgive than to take offense, and to give than to receive; that thus I may keep my eyes ever open to my own faults, and may close them to those of my neighbor; that I may put up with everything rather than cause pain to another; that severe to myself, I may be full of indulgence towards others, that I may love them in JESUS, and JESUS in them; that by my prayers, my good advice, and good example, I may strive to draw them for their salvation to JESUS and to thee. AMEN.
Prayer for Ourselves
O Mother of Perpetual Help, with the greatest confidence I come before thy Sacred Picture in order to invoke thine aid. Thou hast seen the Wounds which JESUS hast been pleased to receive for our sake; thou hast seen the Blood of thy Son flowing for our salvation; thou knowest how much thy Son desires to apply to us the fruits of His Redemption. Behold, I cast myself at thy feet, and; pray thee to obtain for my soul the grace I stand so much in need of. O Mary most loving of all mothers, obtain for me from the heart of JESUS, the grace
( Here mention your petition)
O Mother of Perpetual Help, thou desirest our salvation far more than we ourselves; thy Son has given thee to us for our Mother, thou hast thyself chosen to be called Mother of Perpetual Help. Show then that thou art really my Mother, show that thou art justly called Mother of Perpetual Help. I trust not in my merits, but in thy powerful intercession; I trust in thy goodness, I trust in thy motherly love. Mother of Perpetual Help, for the love thou bearest of JESUS thy Son and my Redeemer, for the love of thy great servant Alphonsus, for the love of my soul, obtain for me the grace I ask from thee.
