NOVENA FOR FINAL PERSEVERANCE
I greet thee, ever-blessed
Virgin, Mother of God, throne of grace, miracle of almighty power! I
greet thee, sanctuary of the Most Holy Trinity and Queen of the
universe, Mother of mercy and refuge of sinners! Most loving Mother,
attracted by thy beauty and sweetness, and by thy tender compassion, I
confidently turn to thee, miserable as I am, and beg of thee to
obtain for me of thy dear Son the favor I request in this novena:
(here mention your request).
Obtain for me also, Queen of Heaven, the most lively contrition for
my many sins and the grace to imitate closely those virtues which thou
practice so faithfully, especially humility, purity, and obedience.
Above all, I beg thee to be my mother and protectress, to receive me
into the number of thy devoted children, and to guide me from thy
high throne of glory.
Do not reject my petitions, Mother of mercy! Have pity on me, and do
not abandon me during life or at the moment of my death.
Daughter of the Eternal Father, Mother of the Eternal Son, Spouse of
the Holy Spirit, temple of the adorable Trinity, pray for me.
Immaculate and tender Heart of Mary, refuge of the needy and hope of
sinners, filled with the most lively respect, love, and gratitude, I
devote myself forever to thy service, and I offer thee my heart with
all that I am and all that belongs to me.
Accept this offering, sweet Queen of Heaven and earth, and obtain for
me of thy dear Son, Jesus Christ, the favors I ask through thine
intercession in this novena. Obtain for me also a tender, generous,
constant love of God, perfect submission to His adorable Will, the true
spirit of a Christian, and the grace of final perseverance. Amen.
