FEAST OF OUR LADY OF THE HOLY ROSARY
Novena: October 2-10, 2009
Day 3: Mary, Cause of our Joy
O Mary, you spirit finds joy in God your Savior. Your entire being found joy in the Lord. You spread that joy to others, even the pre-born baby John, who leapt "for joy" at the sound of your tender voice as you carried Jesus into the home in you womb. You are also present in the upper room at Pentecost and surely exulted with joy as your Spouse, the Holy Spirit, filled the apostles, who then brought many people into the Church.
(Mention your intentions)
We rejoice with you, O Mother of God, and may we bring more people in rejoicing in the Lord.
