PERPETUAL NOVENA IN HONOR OF OUR LADY OF THE MIRACULOUS MEDAL
[All stand] The
Lourdes Hymn: HERE.
Priest: In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the
Priest: Come, O Holy
Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of
Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created.
People: And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
Priest: Let us pray. O
God Who didst instruct the hearts of the faithful by the
light of the Holy Ghost, grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise
ever to rejoice in His consolation, through Jesus Christ Our Lord.
Priest: O Mary,
conceived without sin,
People: Pray for us who have recourse to Thee. [3 times]
Priest and People: O Lord Jesus Christ, Who hast vouchsafed to
glorify by numberless miracles/ the Blessed Virgin Mary,/ immaculate
from the first moment of Her conception,/ grant that all who devoutly
implore Her protection on earth,/ may eternally enjoy Thy presence in
Heaven,/ Who, with the Father and the Holy Ghost,/ livest and reignest,
God, forever and ever. Amen.
O Lord Jesus Christ,/ Who for the accomplishment of Thy greatest
works,/ hast chosen the weak things of the world,/ that no flesh may
glory in Thy sight,/ and Who for a better and more widely diffused
belief/ in the Immaculate Conception of Thy Mother,/ hast wished that
the Miraculous Medal/ be manifested to Saint Catherine Laboure,/ grant,
we beseech Thee,/ that filled with like humility,/ we may glorify this
mystery by word and work. Amen.
Memorare: Priest and People: Remember,
O most gracious Virgin Mary,/ that never was it known/ that anyone who
fled to Thy protection,/ implored Thy help,/ or sought Thy
intercession,/ was left unaided./ Inspired by this confidence,/ we fly
unto Thee,/ O Virgin of Virgins, our Mother./ To Thee do we come;/
before Thee we kneel/ sinful and sorrowful./ O Mother of the Word
Incarnate,/ despise not our petitions,/ but in Thy mercy hear and
answer them. Amen.
Novena Prayer: Priest and
Immaculate Virgin Mary,/ Mother of Our Lord Jesus and our Mother,/
penetrated with the most lively confidence/ in Thy all-powerful and
never-failing intercession,/ manifested so often through the Miraculous
Medal,/ we Thy loving and trustful children/ implore Thee to obtain for
us/ the graces and favors we ask during this Novena,/ if they be
beneficial to our immortal souls,/ and the souls for whom we pray./
[Here privately form your petitions.] Thou knowest, O Mary,/ how often
our souls have been the sanctuaries of Thy Son! Who hates iniquity./
Obtain for us then/ a deep hatred of sin/ and that purity of heart/
which will attach us to God alone/ so that our every thought, word and
deed! may tend to His greater glory./ Obtain for us also/ a spirit of
prayer and self-denial/ that we may recover by penance/ what we have
lost by sin/ and at length attain to that blessed abode/ where Thou art
the Queen of Angels and of men. Amen.
AN ACT OF CONSECRATION TO OUR LADY OF THE MIRACULOUS MEDAL
Priest and People: O
Virgin Mother of God,/ Mary Immaculate,/ we dedicate and consecrate
ourselves to Thee/ under the title of Our Lady of the Miraculous
Medal./ May this Medal be for each one of us/ a sure sign of Thy
affection for us/ and a constant reminder of our duties towards Thee./
Ever while wearing it,/ may we be blessed by Thy loving protection/ and
preserved in the grace of Thy Son./ O most powerful Virgin,/ Mother of
our Savior,/ keep us close to Thee/ every moment of our lives./ Obtain
for us, Thy children,/ the grace of a happy death;/ so that in union
with Thee,/ we may enjoy the bliss of Heaven forever. Amen.
Priest: O Mary, conceived
People: Pray for us who have recourse to Thee. [3 times] All
