DAY 7 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.
MOST HOLY MOTHER of our Savior, thou alone hast loved Him worthily for thou hast not love Him in word only, but in deed and in truth; thou hast given the great proof that this love demands, for thou has loved us with a love which next to His own, never had an equal and which brought thee to sacrifice for our happiness all that made thine own, even thy JESUS Himself I can never be dear to thee unless I also love my neighbor with a sincere and generous love. Help me to do so, O Mother of Perpetual Help. Obtain for me a heart like to that of JESUS and thy own, so that I may be meek and humble, patient, compassionate, more ready to forgive than to take offense, and to give than to receive; that thus I may keep my eyes ever open to my own faults, and may close them to those of my neighbor; that I may put up with everything rather than cause pain to another; that severe to myself, I may be full of indulgence towards others, that I may love them in JESUS, and JESUS in them; that by my prayers, my good advice, and good example, I may strive to draw them for their salvation to JESUS and to thee. AMEN.
Recite 3 Hail Marys for the favor you seek to obtain.
Our Mother of Perpetual Help, pray for us.
