Novena to Our 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 please 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.
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.
