Novena: October 2-10, 2009

Day 9: Mary, Health of the Sick

Mary Immaculate, you have given yourself to us as our Lady, Health of those in need of healing. You have asked us to pray with confidence, and we will receive great graces. We know your compassion, because you saw your Son suffer and die for us. In your union with his suffering you became the Mother of us all. Mary, our Mother, teach us to understand our sufferings as you do and to endure it in union with the suffering of Jesus. In your motherly love, calm our fears and increase our trust in God's loving care. According to God's plan, obtain for us the healing we need. Intercede with your Son that we may have the strength we need to work for God's glory and the salvation of the world. Amen.

(Mention your intentions)

Mary, Health of the Sick, pray for me.
