Novena's & Prayers

Miscellaneous Prayers and Acts 



Lord Jesus Christ, thank you for being with us till the end of time.  You are present among us in word and sacrament.  You are also present in our homes, for you have said, "Where two or three are gathered in my name there I am among them."  We come to you today with a great desire to belong to you more closely and to discover you more fully as the Way, the Truth and the Life. 

To St. Margaret Mary you revealed your great wish to be the Centre of all families.  You promised to bless, in a special way, all those who concentrate themselves and their homes to your  Sacred Heart.  Each one of us here has already been consecrated to you in Baptism.  Today, we wish to renew this consecration with our whole heart.  We commit ourselves to you, as individuals and as a family, by our consecration to your Sacred Heart.  We desire to be true to you and to your Church, in our family values, our relationships and entertainment, and to be of service for your Kingdom, all the days of our life. 

Lord Jesus, be with us now and always.  Bind us together-in your love.  Open our hearts to serve those in need.  Sustain us in our daily struggle to be true to your Gospel.  Take away all useless worry and anxiety.  Be with us particularly in times of sickness and suffering.  Direct us in our moments of doubt.  Protect us from the snares of the Evil One. 

Sinners though we are, we still trust in your infinite love and mercy.  When we go along our selfish way and do wrong, follow us closely, like the Good Shepherd in search of the lost sheep.  In your goodness and love lead us safely back to your fold. 

Be close to us in a special way at the hour of death.  Grant us perfect peace as we surrender ourselves to God in the dying moments of our life.  To those of us who are left behind, grant courage and strength.  May we live in the hope of one day being reunited as one family in your family in your heavenly Kingdom.  To you be glory, honour and praise forever.  Amen.

Almighty and eternal God, look upon the Heart of Your well beloved Son, and upon the praise and satisfaction, He offers you on behalf of sinners, and being appeased, grant pardon to those who seek Your mercy, in the name of the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, world without end.  Amen. 


O Most holy Virgin! You were chosen by the most adorable trinity from all eternity to be the most pure Mother of Jesus.  Permit me your humble and devoted client, to remind you of the joy you received at the instance of the most sacred incarnation of the Divine Lord, and during the nine months you carried Him in your chaste womb.   I wish you most sincerely that I could renew, or even increase that joy by the fervour  of my prayers. 

O tender Mother of the afflicted! grant me under my present necessities that special protection you have promised to those who devoutly commemorate this ineffable joy.  Relying on the infinite mercies of  your Divine Son, trusting that those who ask should receive and penetrated with confidence in your powerful prayers, I most humbly entreat you to  intercede for me.  I beg you to obtain for me the favours which I petition for in this novena, if it be the Holy will of God to grant them; and if not , to ask for me whatever graces I most stand in need of (Here specify your request) 

I desire by this novena which I now offer in your honour, to prove the lively confidence I have in your intercession.  Accept it I beseech you, in honour of that supernatural love and joy, with which your Immaculate Heart replenished during the abode of your Divine Son in your womb, in veneration of which I offer you the sentiments of my heart. (Repeat the Hail Mary nine times) 

O Mother of God, accept these salutations in union with the respect and veneration with which the angel Gabriel first hailed you "full of grace."  I wish most sincerely that they may become so many gems in the crown of your  accidental glory, which will increase in brightness to the end of the world. 

I beseech you, O comfortress of the afflicted, by the joy you received, when the Word was made flesh, to obtain for me the favours and graces which I have know implored through your powerful intercession.  For this end I offer you all the good works which have ever been performed in your honour.  I most humbly entreat you for the love of the amiable heart of Jesus with which yours was ever so inflamed, to hear my humble prayers and obtain my request.  Amen.

(24th Nov - 2nd Dec) (Feast 3rd Dec)

O devoted servant of God, St. Francis Xavier, the Father filled you with special gifts while on earth and made your heart a furnace burning with love for Jesus.  Impelled by this love, you went from country to country and spent yourself unto death to proclaim the Name of Jesus and the Good News of salvation. 

For this total offering of your life God rewarded you with a high degree of glory in heaven and preserved your body from corruption here on earth.  Filled with joy for these unique    gifts, we (I) join you in praising the Father. 

We (I) too have received the  priceless gift of the faith you proclaimed.  So we (I) ask you to obtain that our hearts (my heart) too may burn with the same love of  Jesus and be filled with a thirst for making Him known to other men.  Show us (me) how in our (my) own state and condition of life we are (I am) to fulfill this duty of our (my) Christian calling and may our (my) entire life be, according to the teaching of Jesus, a brightly shining light. 

We (I) place before you also our (my) other needs and the earnest desires of  our hearts (my heart)..(mention your special request).  We (I) ask you to intercede for the fulfillment of these desires if they are pleasing to the Father.  And for everything together with you we (I) praise the Father, though Jesus, in the Spirit, Amen. 


O Most Holy Mary, Immaculate Virgin and Mother, Queen of the angels and saints, and refuge of sinners Our Lady of Mount; I salute thee with the  most profound veneration and filial devotion.  I thank thee for thy maternal protection and the many blessings that I and many others have received through thy blessings that I and many others have received through thy wondrous mercy and most powerful intercession.  O help of Christians,  O Queen and Mother of India I have recourse to thee with unbounded confidence.  I beseech thee to hear my prayer and to obtain for me of thy divine Son the favour I request in this novena, if it be to the glory of God, to thy honour and for the good of my soul.  Amen. (Make your petition)

V.  O Mary conceived without sin.
R.  Pray for us, who have recourse to thee.

Let us pray
O most sweet and merciful Jesus, who has given us to venerate thy most Blessed Mother under the special invocation of Our Lady of the Mount; graciously grant that amid all the changes of this our life, we may be so defended by the constant protection of the same Immaculate and ever Virgin Mary, as to be able to attain to the reward of thine eternal redemption.  Who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen. 


The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
And she conceived of the  Holy Ghost.
Hail Mary.

Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
Be done unto me according to the word.

elieve in God, the father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right5 hand of the father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen
