Novena to the
Immaculate Heart of Mary



Immaculate Heart of Mary,
full of love for God and mankind, and of compassion for sinners,
I consecrate myself entirely to you. I entrust to you the salvation
of my soul.
May my heart be ever united with yours, so that I may hate sin,
love God and my neighbor,
and reach eternal life together
with those whom I love.

Mediatrix of All Graces and
Mother of Mercy,
remember the infinite treasure which your Divine Son has merited by His suffering and which he has confided to you for us,
 your children.
Filled with confidence in your motherly heart, and for the sake of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
obtain for me the favor I ask: [Mention your request here].

Dearest Mother, if what I ask for should not be according to God's will, pray that I may receive that which will be of greater benefit
to my soul.
May I experience the kindness of your intercession with Jesus during life and at the hour of my death? Amen.
