DAY 8 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 MARY, Lily of the Valley and Mirror of Purity, blessed be GOD, Whose infinite goodness has given us in thee so powerful a means of deliverance from the slavery of that deadly vice which, more than any other, causes the eternal ruins of souls. How many hast thou, O Virgin most pure, preserved in innocence through life! How many, after having long been slaves of their shameful passions, have through thee recovered their freedom! I beseech thee then, preserve me continually and all who belong to me from the attacks of this vice. Obtain for me, Mother Mary, by the holy Virginity and by thy Immaculate Conception, that I may be pure in body and soul. Thou ever defendest all those who confide in thy Perpetual Help, and who invoke thee in the hour of danger: grant then, that in no day I may omit to honor thee, and to pray to thee. May I bear thee in mind, especially when the enemy of my salvation assails me. This is the grace I ask of thee, and I desire always to ask of thee: obtain it for me and I shall be secure. By thy holy Virginity and thy Immaculate Conception obtain for me, O Mother of Perpetual Help, purity of body and soul. AMEN.
Recite 3 Hail Marys for the favor you seek to obtain.
Our Mother of Perpetual Help, pray for us.
