Novena to Our Lady of Lourdes (Feb 11 – 19)
Lady of Lourdes
O ever Immaculate Virgin, Mother of mercy, health of the sick,
refuge of sinners, comfort of the afflicted, you know my wants,
my troubles, my sufferings. Deign to cast upon me a look of mercy.
By appearing in the Grotto of Lourdes, you were pleased to make it
a privileged sanctuary, whence you dispense your favors.
And already many sufferers have obtained the cure of their infirmities,
both spiritual and corporal. I come, therefore, with the most unbounded
confidence to implore your maternal intercession.
(Pause in silence to mention intentions.)
Obtain, O loving Mother, the granting of my requests.
Through gratitude for favors, I will endeavor to imitate
your virtues that I may one day share your glory.
Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.
