Day 1 – Queenship of Mary Novena, Aug. 13
Prayer Intention for August 13
Today’s prayer intention is for true contrition for our sins and for the grace of conversion of heart, and that we truly appreciate the unique role that the Immaculate One has played in the world of our redemption. Let us open our hearts to the Word of God as found in the Book of Genesis where we read the story of sin entering the world, the loss of original grace, and of the evil and suffering that afflicts humankind.
Daily Novena Prayer
Blessed Mother Mary, your Son Jesus Christ entrusted us to your protection as your own sons and daughters. In every age, the Church has known your maternal grace and intercession. In this special time of grace as we prepare to celebrate that you are our Queen, may we enjoy your protection, assistance, and love. By your sacred fiat, the Word was made flesh.
Teach us how to say yes to God when he calls us forth to work in his vineyard. Grant us reverence and humility when we receive the Lord Jesus Christ in his Holy Eucharist. We call upon you, Immaculate Virgin Mary, to inspire us by your own sorrow and suffering to true contrition for our sins. As you along with Saint Joseph made a home for the Son of God, help our families to grow in holiness in their own homes.
O Star of the Sea, please be a beacon of light for our parish so that we may fulfill our mission to bring God’s Light to the World and guide all souls to heaven. Amen.
