DAY 3 OF THE NOVENA TO OUR MOTHER OF PERPETUAL HELP
O Mary, Mother of Perpetual help, I salute thee with the filial devotion. I renew the consecration of myself, and all I have, to thee. I thank thee for thy maternal protection and for the many blessings that I have received through thy wondrous mercy and most powerful intercession. In all my necessities I have recourse to thee with unbounded confidence O Help of Christians, O Mother of Mercy. I beseech thee now to hear my prayer and to obtain for me of thy divine Son the favor that I request in this novena.
( Here mention your petition)
Obtain for me, also, dearest Mother of Perpetual Help, the grace that I may imitate thee and become more like to thee in the practice of the virtues of humility, purity, submission to the will of God, and charity. Be my protectress in life, guard and guide me in dangers, direct me in difficulties, lead me in the way of perfection, and assist me in the hour of my death, that I may come to Jesus, and with thee enjoy Him, bless Him, and love Him eternally in Heaven. AMEN.
O MOTHER of my GOD and Savior JESUS CHRIST, thou art indeed my true Mother, and I am indeed thy child. What happiness for me thus to think of thee, and to be able to call thee my Mother. O Queen of Angels, the title of Child of Mary is more glorious in my eyes, and more sweet to me than all the great titles so boasted of in the world. To be called thy child is dearer to me by far than the honor and dignity of any name on earth. But alas! how utterly unworthy I am of a holy a Mother, who might well be ashamed of such a child as I am. Thou art pure as light, pious, humble, full of charity and sweetness; thy heart is as a furnace of divine love: and I am stanied with countless sins, attached to earth, proud, harsh to my brethren, and cold towards my GOD. O my Mother, I detest my iniquities . . . obtain pardon for me: I groan under my miseries, and I spread them before thy pitying eyes, that thou mayest cure them. Make them somewhat like to thee, save me from my evil inclinations, particularly from . . . Mother of GOD, grow not weary at my crying, turn not away thy face from me because I am so defiled; but put an end to my importunity by helping me speedily… for, till thou hast heard me, I will not cease to cry to thee. O my Mother, my Mother Mary, come to my help. Be thou my Mother, and make me thy worthy child. AMEN.
Recite 3 Hail Marys for the favor you seek to obtain.
Our Mother of Perpetual Help, pray for us.
