Day 5: Mary, Queen and Mother of Mercy


Novena: October 2-10, 2009

Day 5: Mary, Queen and Mother of Mercy

Most Holy and Immaculate Virgin Mary, my Mother, we, sinners, have recourse to you today, the Mother of my Lord.

We venerate you, O great Queen, and thank you for all the graces you have obtained for us, especially for having delivered us from hell, which we have so often deserved.

We love you, O Queen of Mercy, and for your love, we commit ourselves to serve you forever, and tend all our efforts to make you loved by others too. We place all our hopes and all our salvation in you.

Accept us as your servant, and receive us under your protection, O Mother of Mercies. And since you are so powerful over God, deliver us from all temptations or obtain for me the strength to conquer them until death.

(Mention your intentions)

O Mother, by the love that you have for God, we pray that you will always assist us, but most of all at the last moment of our lives. Do not abandon us until you see us safe in heaven, occupied to bless you and to sing your mercies for all eternity. This is our hope.
