Day 2 – Queenship of Mary Novena, Aug. 14
Prayer Intention for August 14
Today’s prayer intention is for the protection and safety of all families. God has revealed himself as a Trinity of persons, God is in essence a community of love. The Son of God came into the world through a human family. Mary, the Mother of God, and Joseph, her blessed spouse, made a home for God. As we listen to the story of Noah’s family being saved from the waters of the flood, so we beseech God to preserve our families from the tide of evil that surrounds us.
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.
