This novena may be made any time but it is especially good to honor the
Mother of God in her Divine privilege by making the Novena between
November 29-December 7, the eve of the Feast.
Invocation to be Said Every Day of
Thou art all fair, O Mary,
The Original Stain is not in thee.
Thou art the glory of Jerusalem,
Thou, the joy of Israel,
Thou, the great honor of our people
Thou, the advocate of sinners.
Virgin most prudent,
Mother most merciful,
Pray for us,
Intercede for us with our Lord Jesus Christ.
O Virgin Immaculate, who wast pleasing in the Lord's sight and didst
become His Mother, look graciously upon the wretched who implore thy
patronage. The wicked serpent, against whom the primal curse was
hurled, continues none the less to wage war and to lay snares for the
unhappy children of Eve. Ah, do thou, our blessed Mother, our Queen and
Advocate, who from the first instant of thy conception didst crush the
head of our enemy, receive the prayers that we unite single-heartedly
to thine and conjure thee to offer at the throne of God, that we may
never fall into the snares that are laid for us, in such wise that we
may all come to the haven of salvation; and in the midst of so many
dangers may holy Church and the fellowship of Christians everywhere
sing once more the hymn of deliverance, victory and peace. Amen.
To thee, O Virgin Mother, who wast never touched by any spot of
Original or actual
sin, I commend and entrust the purity of my heart.
Forward for Day 2.
