NOVENA TO OUR LADY OF FATIMA
OFFERING OF NOVENA
O Jesus, it is for love of you, for the conversion of sinners, for the Holy Father and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary that we offer this novena.
THE ANGEL’S PRAYER
My God I believe, I adore, I hope and I love you. I beg pardon for those who believe not, hope not and love you not. (Three times)
Most Blessed Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore you. I offer you the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages by which He Himself is offended.
Through the infinite merits of His Sacred Heart, and through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg for the conversion of sinners.
PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY OF FATIMA
Most Blessed Virgin who, on the Hill of Fatima, did deign to reveal to the three humble little shepherds the treasures of the graces flowing from the practice of reciting the Holy Rosary: impress deeply in my soul esteem for this devotion so dear to you. Grant that, meditating on the mysteries of our redemption therein recalled, we may gather its precious fruits. Grant us in particular to obtain the grace (pause to recall any special request), which we implore through this novena, if it be for the greater glory of God, for your honour and for the good of our souls.
The Rosary is now said:
1st, 4th, 7th days – Joyful mysteries
2nd, 5th, 8th days – Sorrowful mysteries
3rd, 6th, 9th days – Glorious mysteries.
After each “Gloria” of the Rosary this prayer is said:
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy.
Our Lady of Fatima, inflame our hearts with love of Reparation.
PRAYER FOR ONE’S COUNTRY AND FOR THE PEACE OF THE WORLD
O Queen of the Rosary, Sweet Virgin of Fatima, who has deigned to appear in the land of Portugal, and has brought peace both interior and exterior to that once so troubled country, we beg of you to watch over our dear homeland and assure its moral and spiritual revival.
Bring back peace to all the nations of the world so that all, our own nation in particular, may be happy to call you their Queen and the Queen of Peace. Amen.
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for our country.
Our Lady of Fatima, obtain for all humanity a lasting peace.
ACT OF CONSECRATION TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
O Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of Heaven and of Earth and tender Mother of mankind, in accordance with your ardent wish made known at Fatima, I consecrate to you myself, my brethren, my country and the whole human race.
Reign over us and teach us how to make the Heart of Jesus reign and triumph in and around us as it has reigned and triumphed in you.
Reign over us, dearest Mother, that we may be thine in prosperity and in adversity, in joy and in sorrow, in health and in sickness, in life and in death.
O most compassionate Heart of Mary, Queen of Virgins, watch over our minds and hearts and preserve them from the deluge of impurity, which you did lament so sorrowfully at Fatima. We want to be pure, like you. We want to atone for the many crimes committed against Jesus and you. We want to call down upon our country and the whole human race the Peace of God in justice and charity. Amen.
PRAYER TO ST MICHAEL
Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in our day of battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou O Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the power of God, thrust down to hell Satan and all other evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
(Now, as never before, the Church needs the intercession of St Michael. Please say this prayer to St Michael every day, also after you have completed the Novena.)
