A Novena of Masses
in honor of
THE ASSUMPTION OF MARY – 2020
August 15 – 23
TO BE OFFERED FOR THE INTENTIONS
OF ALL CONFRATERNITY MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS
If you still are not able to attend Mass we ask you to participate fully in the Novena by:
1) Making a Spiritual Communion each day during the Novena, and
2) By praying the Rosary each day during the Novena.
Daily Mass is available on EWTN. We will not be streaming the Mass at the Rosary Center. Your local Bishop may also have suggestions on where to see Mass. Also, the Holy Father, Pope Francis, has issued special indulgences because of the worldwide pandemic.
Spiritual Communion: My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
O Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God and Mother of men, we believe with all the fervor of our faith in your trimphal Assumption into Heaven, body and soul, where you are acclaimed as Queen of all the choirs of Angels, and the countless multitude of saints. We unite with them in thanking and praising God who has exalted you above all the heavenly hosts.
In your mercy, dearest Mother, look down upon our miseries and our sorrows, upon our struggles and our weaknesses. Help us to remain pure in mind and body, to bear the crosses of life, and to live and die in close union with your Divine Son. Intercede with Him on our behalf, and obtain the graces and favors we ask in this Novena.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother; to thee 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.
