- + In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
- ACT OF CONTRITION (To be recited daily)
Oh, my Dear Jesus! You are our King and our God, because of Your love for us You came down from heaven born of the Virgin Mary. My heart weeps, for in spite of Your goodness we have committed many sins. Forgive us, Oh Jesus, for our sin of ingratitude in return for Your goodness. Strengthen our will to resist temptation and sin. With Your Grace we will be able to fulfill our promises and share with Your glory in heaven.
Oh, Holy Child Jesus, who is ever good and loving, we kneel before You, our true God. With humility we implore You to give us Your mercy and grant us all the favors we ask of you in this NOVENA, so that we will enjoy the blessings of heaven. AMEN.
- PETITION FOR EACH DAY (SEE BELOW)
Day 1: Oh, ever-wise Jesus, who, in Your wisdom, had sent zealous missionaries to our humble shores to preach the Gospel to our forefathers so that they would see the LIGHT and embrace the CATHOLIC FAITH, we humbly ask You to give us a living Faith so that we may always please You in all that we do. We ask You this in Your holy name. Amen.
Day 2: Oh, most-loving Jesus, who has shown Your love to us by dying for us on the Cross and by giving Yourself to us in the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, we beseech You to share with us Your Love so that we may always love You with all our hearts, with all our soul and with all our strength, and also so that we may always love our neighbors as ourselves. This we ask You in Your holy name. Amen.
Day 3: Oh, Jesus, Who has said. “Learn from Me because I am meek and humble of heart”, grant us the virtues of meekness and humility so that we may progress in our spiritual life, and so that our neighbor may see Your Image in us. We ask You this in Your holy name. Amen.
Day 4: Oh, merciful Jesus, You had forgiven those who crucified You; we implore You to give us a forgiving heart so that we may always pardon those who will hurt us in word or in did. This we ask You in Your holy name. Amen.
Day 5: Oh, merciful Jesus! You have said that “there will be more rejoicing in heaven for one sinner who repents than over ninety nine just who don’t need repentance”; we beseech You to grant us the grace of repentance so that we may repent our sins and live for You alone. This we ask You in Your holy name. Amen.
Day 6: Oh, most-loving Jesus! You gave us an example of a chaste life while You were on earth; we implore You to grant us the virtue of chastity so that we may always live a chaste life in whatever state of life we have chosen. This we ask You in Your holy name. Amen.
Day 7: Oh, most merciful Jesus! You had been always obedient to Your heavenly Father even unto death; we beseech You to grant us the grace of being always docile to the promptings of the Holy Spirit so that we will always glorify Your Father in heaven. This we ask You in Your holy name. Amen.
Day 8: Oh, merciful Jesus! You opened the gates of heaven for us through Your death and resurrection; we implore You to grant us eternal life after our sojourn here on earth. We ask You this in Your holy name. Amen.
Day 9: Oh, merciful Jesus! You said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life”; we beseech You to guide us in our way to heaven so that we may be able to surmount all the difficulties and obstacles we will encounter in this deceptive world. Grant to us the virtue of hope so that we will always thirst for the heavenly things and for Your glory. This we ask You in Your holy name. Amen.
