My dearest Mother Mary, behold me, thy child, in prayer
at thy feet. Accept this Holy Rosary, which I offer thee in accordance
with thy requests at Fatima, as a proof of my tender love for thee,
for the intentions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in atonement for
the offenses committed against thy Immaculate Heart, and for this
special favor which I earnestly request in my Rosary Novena: (Mention
I beg thee to present my petition to thy Divine Son. If thou wilt
pray for me, I cannot be refused. I know, dearest Mother, that thou
wishes me to seek God’s holy Will concerning my request. If
what I ask for should not be granted, pray that I may receive that
which will be of greater benefit to my soul.
I offer thee this spiritual “Bouquet of Roses” because
I love thee. I put all my confidence in thee, since thy prayers before
God are most powerful. For the greater glory of God and for the sake
of Jesus, thy loving Son, hear and grant my prayer. Sweet Heart of
Mary, be my salvation.
This novena is to be said along with
a daily rosary.
