Novena & Consecration


Novena to Mary Help of Christians

***Repeat all prayers 3 times

  • Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
  • Hail Mary, 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.
  • Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
  • Blessed and praised every moment be the Most Holy and Divine Sacrament.
  • Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile show us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
  • Mary Help of Christians, pray for us

Consecration of the World to Mary Help of Christians [March 24]

Most Holy and Immaculate Virgin Mary, our tender and powerful Mother of Christians, we consecrate ourselves entirely to you, so that you may lead us to the Lord. We dedicate our spirit to you with its thoughts, our heart with its affections, the body with its feelings and all its strength, and we promise to always want to work for the greater glory of God and for the salvation of souls.

Meanwhile, O incomparable Virgin, you who have always been the Mother of the Church and the Help of Christians, continue to show yourself thus, especially these days.

Enlighten and strengthen bishops and priests, keep them always united and obedient to the Pope, infallible teacher; increase priestly and religious vocations so that, also through them, the kingdom of Jesus Christ is preserved among us and extend to the very ends of the earth.

We ask you once again, sweet Mother, to always keep your loving eyes on the young exposed to so many dangers and on the poor sinners and the dying.

Be for all, o Mary, sweet Hope, Mother of mercy, Door of Heaven. But we also beg you, O great Mother of God, for ourselves. Teach us to copy in us your virtues, especially your angelic modesty, your profound humility and your ardent charity.

Mary Help of Christians, make us all gathered under your mantle.

Grant that in temptations we immediately invoke you with trust: in short, let the thought of you - so good, so kind, so dear, the memory of the love you bring to your devotees - grant such comfort that it makes us victorious against the enemies of our soul, in life and in death, so that we can come to be your crown in beautiful Paradise. Amen.
