R/. Amen.

VIRGIN most pure, conceived without sin, all fair and stainless in thy Conception;

glorious Mary, full of grace, Mother of my GOD, Queen of Angels and of men,

I humbly venerate thee as Mother of my SAVIOUR, who, though He was GOD, taught me by his own veneration, reverence, and obedience to thee, the honour and homage that are due to thee.

Vouchsafe, I pray thee, to accept this Novena which I dedicate to thee.

Thou art the safe refuge of the penitent sinner;

it is very fitting, then, that I should have recourse to thee.

Thou art the Mother of Compassion; then wilt thou surely be moved with pity for my many miseries.

Thou art my best hope after JESUS; thou canst not but accept the loving confidence that I have in thee.

Make me worthy to be called thy son, that so I may dare to cry unto thee : Show thyself amother.


Hail Mary x 9


Gloria Patri x 1

Prayer for the First Day



BEHOLD me at thy sacred feet, O Immaculate Virgin. 

rejoice with thee, because from all eternity thou wast elected to be the Mother of the Eternal Word, and wast preserved stainless from the taint of original sin.

I praise and bless the Most Holy Trinity, who poured out upon thy soul in thy Conception the treasure of that privilege.

I humbly pray thee to obtain for me grace effectually to overcome the sad effects produced in my soul by original sin ;

make me wholly victorious over them, that I may never cease to love my GOD.

Novena Prayer to the Immaculate Conception


Immaculate Virgin Mary, you were pleasing in the sight of God from the first moment of your conception in the womb of your mother, St. Anne. You were chosen to be the mother of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I believe the teaching of holy Mother the Church, that in the first instant of your conception, by the singular grace and privilege of Almighty God, in virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race and beloved Son, you were preserved from all stain of original sin. I thank God for this wonderful privilege and grace he bestowed upon you as I honor your Immaculate Conception.

Look graciously upon me as I implore this special favor: (mention your request).

Virgin Immaculate, Mother of God and my Mother, from your throne in heaven turn your eyes of pity upon me. Filled with confidence in your goodness and power, I beg you to help me in this journey of life which is so full of dangers for my soul. I entrust myself entirely to you, that I may never be the slave of the devil through sin, but may always live a humble and pure life. I consecrate myself to you forever, for my only desire is to love your divine Son Jesus. Mary, since none of your devout servants has perished, May I too be saved.



Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death, amen.

Prayer for the Second Day



MARY, unsullied lily of purity, I rejoice with thee, because from the first moment of thy Conception thou wast filled with grace, and hadst given unto thee the perfect use of reason. I thank and adore the ever blessed Trinity, who gave thee those high gifts.

Behold me at thy feet overwhelmed with shame to see myself so poor in grace.

O Thou who wast filled full of heavenly grace, grant me a portion of that same
grace, and make me a partaker in the treasures of thy Immaculate Conception.

MARY, mystic rose of purity, I rejoice with thee at the glorious triumph thou didst gain over the serpent by thy Immaculate Conception, in that thou wast conceived without original sin.

Novena Prayer to the Immaculate Conception


Immaculate Virgin Mary, you were pleasing in the sight of God from the first moment of your conception in the womb of your mother, St. Anne. You were chosen to be the mother of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I believe the teaching of holy Mother the Church, that in the first instant of your conception, by the singular grace and privilege of Almighty God, in virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race and beloved Son, you were preserved from all stain of original sin. I thank God for this wonderful privilege and grace he bestowed upon you as I honor your Immaculate Conception.

Look graciously upon me as I implore this special favor: (mention your request).

Virgin Immaculate, Mother of God and my Mother, from your throne in heaven turn your eyes of pity upon me. Filled with confidence in your goodness and power, I beg you to help me in this journey of life which is so full of dangers for my soul. I entrust myself entirely to you, that I may never be the slave of the devil through sin, but may always live a humble and pure life. I consecrate myself to you forever, for my only desire is to love your divine Son Jesus. Mary, since none of your devout servants has perished, May I too be saved.



Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death, amen.

Vouchsafe, I pray thee, to accept this Novena which I dedicate to thee.

Thou art the safe refuge of the penitent sinner;

it is very fitting, then, that I should have recourse to thee.

Make me worthy to be called thy son, that so I may dare to cry unto thee : Show thyself amother.

Novena Prayer to the Immaculate Conception


Immaculate Virgin Mary, you were pleasing in the sight of God from the first moment of your conception in the womb of your mother, St. Anne. You were chosen to be the mother of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I believe the teaching of holy Mother the Church, that in the first instant of your conception, by the singular grace and privilege of Almighty God, in virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race and beloved Son, you were preserved from all stain of original sin. I thank God for this wonderful privilege and grace he bestowed upon you as I honor your Immaculate Conception.

Look graciously upon me as I implore this special favor: (mention your request).

Virgin Immaculate, Mother of God and my Mother, from your throne in heaven turn your eyes of pity upon me. Filled with confidence in your goodness and power, I beg you to help me in this journey of life which is so full of dangers for my soul. I entrust myself entirely to you, that I may never be the slave of the devil through sin, but may always live a humble and pure life. I consecrate myself to you forever, for my only desire is to love your divine Son Jesus. Mary, since none of your devout servants has perished, May I too be saved.



Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death, amen.

I humbly venerate thee as Mother of my SAVIOUR, who, though He was GOD, taught me by his own veneration, reverence, and obedience to thee, the honour and homage that are due to thee.

Vouchsafe, I pray thee, to accept this Novena which I dedicate to thee.

Thou art the safe refuge of the penitent sinner;

it is very fitting, then, that I should have recourse to thee.

Thou art the Mother of Compassion; then wilt thou surely be moved with pity for my many miseries.

Thou art my best hope after JESUS; thou canst not but accept the loving confidence that I have in thee.

Make me worthy to be called thy son, that so I may dare to cry unto thee : Show thyself amother.


Hail Mary x 9


Gloria Patri x 1

Prayer for the Eigth Day


MARY, Virgin, sun without stain, I congratulate thee and I rejoice with thee, because GOD gave thee in thy Conception a greater and more abundant grace than He gave to all his angels and his saints together,
even when their merits were most exalted. I thank and admire the immense beneficence of the ever blessed Trinity, who hath dispensed to thee alone this privilege. Oh, enable me too to correspond with the grace of GOD, and never more to receive it in vain ; change my heart, and help me to begin in earnest a new life.

Novena Prayer to the Immaculate Conception


Immaculate Virgin Mary, you were pleasing in the sight of God from the first moment of your conception in the womb of your mother, St. Anne. You were chosen to be the mother of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I believe the teaching of holy Mother the Church, that in the first instant of your conception, by the singular grace and privilege of Almighty God, in virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race and beloved Son, you were preserved from all stain of original sin. I thank God for this wonderful privilege and grace he bestowed upon you as I honor your Immaculate Conception.

Look graciously upon me as I implore this special favor: (mention your request).

Virgin Immaculate, Mother of God and my Mother, from your throne in heaven turn your eyes of pity upon me. Filled with confidence in your goodness and power, I beg you to help me in this journey of life which is so full of dangers for my soul. I entrust myself entirely to you, that I may never be the slave of the devil through sin, but may always live a humble and pure life. I consecrate myself to you forever, for my only desire is to love your divine Son Jesus. Mary, since none of your devout servants has perished, May I too be saved.



Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death, amen.

Prayer for the Ninth Day


IMMACULATE Mary, living light of holiness, model of purity, Virgin and Mother, as soon as thou wast
conceived, thou didst profoundly adore thy GOD, giving him thanks, because by means of thee the
ancient curse was blotted out, and blessing was again come upon the sinful sons of Adam. Let this
blessing kindle in my heart love towards GOD; and do thou inflame my heart still more and more, that I
may ever love Him constantly on earth, and afterwards eternally enjoy Him in heaven, there to thank and
praise Him more and more fervently for all the wondrous privileges conferred on thee, and to rejoice
with thee for thy high crown of glory.
