Be blessed, O most pure Virgin, for having vouchsafed to manifest yourself
shining with light, sweetness and beauty, in the Grotto of Lourdes, saying to
the child Saint Bernadette: "I am the Immaculate Conception!" O Mary Immaculate,
inflame our hearts with one ray of the burning love of your pure heart. Let them
be consumed with love for Jesus and for you, in order that we may merit one day

your keeping and present to your Divine Son the petition for which we are making
this novena...(Make your request).
"You are all fair, O Mary, and there is in you no stain of original sin." O
Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. O brilliant
star of sanctity, as on that lovely day, upon a rough rock in Lourdes you spoke
to the child Bernadette and a fountain broke from thee plain earth. Miracles
happened and the great shrine of Lourdes began. Now I beseech you to hear our
fervent prayer and do, we beseech you, grant us the petition we now so earnestly
seek...(Make your request).
O Immaculate Queen of Heaven, we your wayward, erring children, join our
unworthy prayers of praise and thanksgiving to those of the angels and saints
and your own the One, Holy, and Undivided Trinity may be glorified in heaven and
on earth. Our Lady of Lourdes, as you looked down with love and mercy upon
Bernadette as she prayed her rosary in the grotto, look down now, we beseech
you, with love and mercy upon us. From the abundance of graces granted you by
your Divine Son, sweet Mother of God, give to each of us all that your motherly
heart sees we need and at this moment look with special favor on the grace we
seek in this novena...(Make your request).
O Mary Immaculate, Mother of God and our mother, from the heights of your
dignity look down mercifully upon us while we, full of confidence in your
unbounded goodness and confident that your Divine Son will look favorably upon
any request you make of Him in our behalf, we beseech you to come to our aid
O glorious Mother of God, so powerful under your special title of Our Lady of
Lourdes, to you we raise our hearts and hands to implore your powerful
intercession in obtaining from the benign Heart of Jesus all the helps and
graces necessary for our spiritual and temporal welfare and for the special
favor we so earnestly seek in this novena...(Make your request).
O Almighty God, who by the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary did
prepare a worthy dwelling place for your Son, we humbly beseech you that as we
contemplate the apparition of Our Lady in the Grotto of Lourdes, we may be
blessed with health of mind and body. And, O most gracious Mother Mary, beloved
Mother of Our Lord and Redeemer, look with favor upon us as you did that day on
Bernadette and intercede with him for us that the favor we now so earnestly seek
may be granted to us...(Make your request).
O Immaculate Mother of God, from heaven itself you came to appear to the little
Bernadette in the rough Grotto of Lourdes! And as Bernadette knelt at your feet
and the magic spring burst forth and as multitudes have knelt ever since before
your shrine, O Mother of God, we kneel before you today to ask that in your
mercy you plead with your Divine Son to grant the special favor we seek in this
novena...(Make your request).
O glorious Mother of God, to you we raise our hearts and hands to implore your
powerful intercession in obtaining from the benign Heart of Jesus all the graces
necessary for our spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly for the grace of
a happy death. O Mother of our Divine Lord, as we conclude this novena for the
special favor we seek at this time...Make your request).
