Annunciation Novena

Mar. 16th to Mar. 24th

This Novena for the feast of the Annunciation is traditionally prayed from starting on March 16th but you can pray it any time. This feast is commemorating when the angel of the Lord appeared to Mary and told her that she would conceive Jesus. It’s 9 months before Christmas.

I greet you,
Ever-blessed Virgin,
Mother of God,
Throne of Grace,
miracle of Almighty Power!

I greet you,
Sanctuary of the Most Holy Trinity
and Queen of the Universe,
Mother of Mercy and refuge of sinners!

Most loving Mother,
attracted by your beauty and sweetness,
and by your tender compassion,
I confidently turn to you,
miserable as I am,
and beg of you to obtain
for me from your dear Son,
the favor I request in this novena:

(mention your request here).

Obtain for me also,
Queen of heaven,
the most lively contrition for my
many sins and the grace to imitate
closely those virtues which you
practiced so faithfully,
especially humility,
purity and obedience.

Above all,
I beg you to be my Mother and Protectress,
to receive me into the
number of your devoted children,
and to guide me from your high throne of glory.

Do not reject my petitions,
Mother of Mercy!

Have pity on me,
and do not abandon me during
life or at the moment of my death.
