Novena of Mary, the Mother of God

I greet you,
ever-bless 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 of your dear Son,
the favor I request in this novena:
(Mention your request)

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,
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.

Daughter of the Eternal Father,
Mother of the Eternal Son,
Spouse of the Holy Spirit,
Temple of the Adorable Trinity,
pray for me.
Immaculate and tender heart of Mary,
refuge of the needy and hope of sinners,
filled with the most lively respect,
and gratitude,
I devote myself forever to your service,
and offer you my heart with all that I
am and all that belongs to me.

Accept this offering,
sweet Queen of Heaven and Earth,
and obtain for me of your dear Son,
Jesus Christ,
the favors I ask through your
intercession in the novena.
Obtain for me also a tender,
constant love of God,
perfect submission to His adorable Will,
the true spirit of a Christian,
and the grace of final perseverance.

Prayer (Memorare)

O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help,
or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence I fly to you,
O Virgin of virgins,
my Mother.
To you I come;
before you I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy hear and answer me.
