Novena to Maria Bambina - begins 30th August


Picture source Holy Card Heaven

The following was shared by Madalena:

Dear Friends,

On the 8th of September we celebrate the birthday of our Blessed Mother the Virgin Mary, Queen of heaven and earth. It was because of her "Yes" that Jesus came into the world, 'the Word made flesh Who dwelt among us'.

In preparation for this great day, the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary let us thank our Blessed Mother for the gift of Jesus to each one of us. Let us also thank her for keeping her Mantle of Blue around us always, as she leads us to her Son our Saviour. Most importantly, let us imitate her every virtue as she is the perfect model to follow, conceived without stain of sin.

Attached is the Novena to Maria Bambina (the Infant Virgin Mary) which begins on the 30th of August. Please make it a point to pray this novena with your families as you place them under the Mantle of our Blessed Mother.

O Mary conceived without original sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee!!!

God bless U,
Elaine


NOVENA TO MARIA BAMBINA

Holy Child Mary of the royal house of David, Queen of the angels, Mother of grace and love, I greet you with all my heart. Obtain for me the grace to love the Lord faithfully during all the days of my life. Obtain for me, too, a great devotion to you, who are the first creature of God's love.
Pray the "Hail Mary..."

O heavenly Child Mary, who like a pure dove was born immaculate and beautiful, true prodigy of the wisdom of God, my soul rejoices in you. Oh! Do help me to preserve the angelic virtue of purity at the cost of any sacrifice.
Pray the "Hail Mary..."

Hail, lovely and holy Child, spiritual garden of delight, where, on the day of the Incarnation, the tree of life was planted, assist me to avoid the poisonous fruit of vanity and pleasures of the world. Help me to engraft into my soul the thoughts, feelings, and virtues of your divine Son.
Pray the "Hail Mary..."

Hail, admirable Child Mary, Mystical Rose, closed garden, open only to the heavenly Spouse. O Lily of paradise, make me love the humble and hidden life; let the heavenly Spouse find the gate of my heart always open to the loving calls of His graces and inspiration.
Pray the "Hail Mary..."

Holy Child Mary, mystical dawn, happy gate of heaven, you are my trust and hope. O powerful advocate, from your little cradle stretch out your hand, support me on the path of life. Make me serve God with ardor and constancy until death and so reach an eternal crown.
Pray the "Hail Mary..."

Prayer
Blessed Child Mary, destined to be the Mother of God and our sovereign and loving Mother, by the heavenly graces you lavish upon us, mercifully listen to my humble supplications. In the needs which press upon me from every side and especially in my present tribulation, I place all my trust in you.

O holy Child, by the privileges granted to you alone and by the merits which you have acquired, be merciful to me this day. Show that the source of spiritual favours and the continuous benefits which you dispense are inexhaustible, because your power with the Heart of God is unlimited.

Deign through the immense profusion of graces with which the Most High has enriched you from the first moment of your Immaculate Conception, grant me, O Celestial Child, my petition, and I shall eternally praise the goodness of your Immaculate Heart. Amen.

Oh my! I LOVE this prayer, Esther! I hope you don't mind if I thieve it for one of my other blogs. When I come across a beautiful prayer or poem I like to steal and save them so that I can find them again.
