Immaculate Conception Novena
Father, You prepared the Virgin Mary to be the worthy Mother of Your Son. You let her share beforehand in the salvation Christ would bring by His death, and kept her sinless from the first moment of her conception.
Help us by her prayers to live in Your presence without sin. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
(NCCB, Sacramentary, December 8: Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, (p. 752-753).
In a special way we would like invite those joining us to pray for peace. In addition to the prayer listed above, we invite you to also say the Consecration prayers daily to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary listed on our favorite prayers page HERE.
Thank you for joining us in this Novena. We will be praying for all those who are joining us before a first class relic of Bl. Stanislaus Papczynski, founder of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception. Bl Stanislaus frequently spoke and gave homilies about Mary’s Immaculate Conception. We will be asking for his intercession through the course of this Novena.
Thank you and may God Bless you. Amen
Church Teaching on the Immaculate Conception:
“Through the centuries the Church has become ever more aware that Mary, ‘full of grace’ through God, was redeemed from the moment of her conception. That is what the dogma of the Immaculate Conception confesses, as Pope Pius IX proclaimed in 1854:
The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, preserved immune from all stain of original sin”. (Catechism of the Catholic Faith, 491).
