Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe
Our Lady of Guadalupe,
According to your message to a native Juan Diego
I venerate you as “the Virgin Mother of the true God
for whom we live,
the Creator of all the world, the Maker of heaven and earth.”
In spirit I kneel before your most holy image
which you miraculously imprinted upon the cloak
of the Indian Juan Diego,
and with the faith of the countless numbers of pilgrims
who visit your shrine, I beg you for this favor:
(mention your request)
To be a generous, self-sacrificing, faithful devotee all the days of my life.
Remember, O Immaculate Virgin,
the words you spoke to your devout client,
“I am a merciful Mother to you and to all your people
who love me and trust in me and invoke my help.
I listen to their lamentations and solace
all their sorrows and their sufferings.”
I beg you to be a merciful Mother to me,
because I sincerely love you and trust in you
and I invoke your help.
I entreat you, Our Lady of Guadalupe,
to grant my request, if this should be the Will of God,
in order that I may
bear witness to your love, your compassion. Your help and protection.
Do not forsake me in my needs. Amen
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.
Happy Feast day to Our Lady of Guadalupe!
