To be prayed the 9 days from August 6th to the 14th.
Mary, Queen Assumed into Heaven, I rejoice that after years of heroic motherly love and service on earth, you have at last been taken to the throne prepared for you in Heaven by the Holy Trinity.
Lift my heart with you in the glory of your Assumption above the dreadful touch of sin and impurity. Teach me how small earth becomes when viewed from Heaven. Make me realize that death is the triumphant gate through which I shall pass to your Son, Jesus Christ, and that someday my body shall rejoin my soul in the unending bliss of Heaven.
From this earth, over which I tread as a pilgrim, I look to you for help. I ask for this favor:
(Mention your request for the parish and for you personally).
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
Please join us in our novena for the parish. And of course, come pray with us at the Parish Feast Day, on Wednesday the 15th for the 5:10 PM Mass, Procession, and Picnic!
