Novena to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal

Novena to Our Lady of The Miraculous Medal

Pray the following prayers daily for nine days:
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful and kindle in them the fire of Your love.  Send forth Your Spirit, and they shall be created.
And You shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray.  O God, Who has instructed the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise, and ever to rejoice in His consolation.  Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
O Mary, conceived without sin,
Pray for us who have recourse to you. (Three times)
Lord Jesus Christ, Who has glorified Your Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, immaculate from the first moment of her conception, grant that all who devoutly implore her protection on earth may eternally enjoy Your presence in heaven.  Lord Jesus Christ, Who for the accomplishment of Your greatest works has chosen the weak things of the world, that no flesh may glory in Your sight, and Who for a better and more widely diffused belief in the Immaculate Conception of Your Mother, has wished that the Miraculous Medal be manifested to Saint Catherine Laboure, grant, we ask You, that filled with the humility, we may glorify this mystery by word and work.  Amen. 
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known, that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your assistance, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.  Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother; to you I come; before you I kneel, sinful and sorrowful.  O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer them. Amen. 
Novena Prayer
Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of our Lord Jesus and our Mother, we have confidence in your powerful and never-failing intercession, manifested so often through the Miraculous Medal.  We, your loving and trustful children, ask you to obtain for us the graces and favors we ask during this novena if they will be for the glory of God and the salvation of souls. (Mention your request.)
You know, O Mary, how often our souls have been the sanctuaries of your Son, who hates iniquity.  Obtain for us then a deep hatred of sin and that purity of heart which will attach us to God alone so that our every thought, word, and deed may tend to His greater glory.
Obtain for us also a spirit of prayer and self-denial that we may recover by penance what we have lost by sin and at length attain to the blessed abode where you are the Queen of angels and of men.  Amen. 
Prayer to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal
O Virgin Mother of God, Mary Immaculate, we unite ourselves to you under your title of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.  May this medal be for each one of us a sure sign of your motherly affection for us and a constant reminder of our filial duties toward you.  While wearing it, may we be blessed by your loving protection and preserved in the grace of your Son.  Most powerful Virgin, Mother of our Savior, keep us close to you every moment of our lives so that, like you, we may live and act according to the teaching and example of your Son.  Obtain for us, your children, the grace of a happy death so that in union with you we may enjoy the happiness of heaven forever.  Amen.   
O Mary, conceived without sin,
Pray for us who have recourse to you.
Closing Prayer
O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us;
O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you.
