Novena to
Our Lady Of Lourdes

Recite this prayer for 9 days.

Be blessed, O most pure Virgin,
for having vouchsafed to manifest your shining with life,
sweetness and beauty,
in the Grotto of Lourdes,
saying to the child, St. Bernadette:
"I am the Immaculate Conception."
A thousand times we congratulate you
upon your Immaculate Conception.
And now, O ever Immaculate Virgin,
Mother of mercy, Health of the sick,
Refuge of sinners,
Comforter of the afflicted,
you know our wants,
our troubles,
our sufferings;
deign to cast upon us a look of mercy.
By appearing in the Grotto of Lourdes,
you were pleased to make it a privileged sanctuary,
whence you dispense your favours,
and already many have obtained the cure of their infirmities,
both spiritual and physical.
We come, therefore,
with the most unbounded confidence
to implore your maternal intercession.
Obtain for us, O loving Mother,
the granting of our request...

(Make your request here...)

Through gratitude for your favours,
we will endeavor to imitate your virtues,
that we may on day share your glory.

Our Lady of Lourdes,
Mother of Christ,
you had influence with your divine son while upon earth.
You have the same influence now in Heaven.
Pray for us;
obtain for us from your Divine Son
our special requests if it be the Divine Will.

Amen.

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.
Saint Bernadette, pray for us.
