Start Novena to Our Lady of Lourdes today! February 3, 2014

The Third Class Feast of the Apparition of Our Lady at Lourdes is February 11.  The Novena should have started yesterday, but I wasn’t here, was I?  But you can start it today and finish on the Feast proper, no problem.

Below is the short form of the Novena.  EWTN has a much longer form with individual daily prayers.  Your  choice, but due to space constraints I’ll only list the short one here:

 O ever Immaculate Virgin, Mother of Mercy, Health of the Sick, Refuge of Sinners, Comfort to the lady of lourdesAfflicted,

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. Obtain,  O loving Mother, the granting of my requests.  (mention your intentions here)

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. Amen.

(Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be.)

Thanks to MJD for the prayer and reminder.

Interesting. I actually did start this novena yesterday on the 2nd and am praying it for the needs of the Franciscans of the Immaculate.
