Novena to Mary Help of Christians – Day 1

Novena in honour of Mary Help of Christians

Day 1 – 15th May 2014

O Mary, you readily agreed to the Angel’s request when you were asked to be the mother of God’s Son, and throughout your life your one desire was to do the will of your Father in heaven. Help me always to be obedient and humble. May I, like you, always have the generosity to follow Jesus, wherever he calls.

(add in this moment all your personal intentions)

Hail Mary, full of grace…

V. Pray for us, O Immaculate, Help of Christians
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray
Heavenly Father, place deep in our hearts the love of Mary, our help and the help of all Christians.
May we fight vigorously for the faith here on earth,
and may 
we one day praise your victories in heaven.
Grant this 
in the name of Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord.
