Novena for the Annunciation
(Begins March 16 and ends on March 25)
O most holy Virgin Mary,
to whom God sent the Angel Gabriel
to announce that you should be the mother of His Only-Begotten Son,
pray for us who have recourse to you.
Holy, lovely Mary
We give our all to you
What is past and present,
And the future, too.
Blessed be the holy and Immaculate Conception
of the most blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God.
I greet you,
Mother of God,
Throne of Grace,
miracle of Almighty Power!
I greet you,
Sanctuary of the Most Holy Trinity
and Queen of the Universe,
Mother of Mercy
and refuge of sinners!
Most loving Mother,
attracted by your beauty and sweetness,
and by your tender compassion,
I confidently turn to you,
miserable as I am,
and beg of you to obtain for me
from your dear Son
the favor I request in this novena:
(mention your request here).
Obtain for me also,
Queen of heaven,
the most lively contrition for my many sins
and the grace to imitate closely
those virtues which you practiced so faithfully,
purity and obedience.
I beg you to be my Mother and Protectress,
to receive me into the number of your devoted children,
and to guide me from your 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.
