Day 3 – Queenship of Mary Novena, Sat., Aug. 15, 6:15 pm
Prayer Intention for Saturday, August 15, 2020
Today’s prayer intention is for all married couples. In the beginning God created them male and female and the twof shall become one flesh. We pray for their unity, for their commitment to fidelity, for an increase in mutual charity, and for true devotion to their chaste bond in love. We pray for the sanctity of marriage within our nation, and that all those couples that are enduring trials find a source of blessing and strength in the Blessed Mother of Christ.
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.
