ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY NOVENA – DAY 7

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Novena of the AssumptionOPENING PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF THE ASSUMPTION

O Most Holy Mary, as we celebrate your Assumption in body and soul to the glory of Heaven, we implore you to help us to live with faith and hope in this world, seeking always and in all things the Kingdom of God.

O Lady assumed to Heaven, help us to open ourselves to the presence and action of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit that creates and renews, capable of transforming our hearts.

O Lady of the Assumption, enlighten our minds about the destiny that awaits us – the eternal joy in the heavenly homeland – of the dignity of each one of us and the nobility of our bodies and of our souls, who may one day be with you in the glory of Heaven.

O Blessed Virgin Mary, raised to Heaven, show yourself to us all as Mother of faith, hope, and love!

A SHORT MEDITATION ON THE ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY BY FR. CHINAKA, OSJ (PART VII)

Dear friends in Christ, let us, therefore, fix our gaze on Mary, already assumed into heaven! She is the certainty and proof that her children will one day have their bodies glorified with the glorious Christ. Our aspiration for eternal life concretizes when we contemplate the bodily Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary; that she is up there, that she sees us and looks at us with her tender eyes, and prays for us. Hence, for us Christians, heaven is no longer a very distant and unknown sphere. In heaven, we have the Mother of the Son of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, who made her our Mother when He said to the beloved disciple and to all of us: “Here is your Mother!” (Jn. 19:26-27). Thus, Heaven is open for us her children.” (To be continued…)

Silent Prayer and Reflection…

DAY 7 PRAYER

Assumption Novena: Day 7 - Church of Saint Mary

Most blessed among all women, my queen, and mother, your assumption into the highest heaven has deepened my faith. I have come to understand that it was necessary that the one who had kept her virginity unharmed in childbirth should also keep her body uncorrupted after death; it was necessary that the one who had carried the Creator in her womb as a child should dwell in the divine abodes; it was necessary that the one who had seen the Son on the cross, receiving in her heart that sword of pain from which she had been immune when giving birth to Him, should contemplate Him who is seated at the right hand of the Father. Highly favoured mother, the closer you are to the Source of graces, the more you can reach us. In heaven, you discover our miseries better, so it is necessary that you have greater compassion in helping us. Make us your faithful servants on earth, that we may later bless you in paradise. As we celebrate the glory of your Assumption in the coming days, we want to consecrate ourselves to your service. In the midst of your great joy, comfort us also by accepting us today as your servants. Before your majesty, I present the following intentions for your maternal care (state your requests).

Recite 3 Hail Marys for the favour you seek to obtain.
O Queen assumed into heaven, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

CONCLUDING PRAYER

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Novena - text and Mp3 downloads

O sovereign queen of the Angels, we well know that as miserable sinners, we were not worthy to possess you in this vale of tears, and we know that your greatness does not make you forget our misery. In the midst of so much glory, your compassion, far from diminishing, increases more and more for us. From the height of that throne where you reign over all the angels and saints, turn your merciful gaze upon us; see how many storms and a thousand dangers encircle us in these turbulent times. Our queen and mother, obtain for us the increase in faith, confidence, and holy perseverance in friendship with God, so that we can, one day, go kiss your feet and unite our voices with those of the heavenly spirits,
to praise and sing your glories eternally in heaven – Ave Maria! Amen.

Concluding AnthemDogma | Reina del Cielo

I’ll sing a hymn to Mary,
The Mother of my God,
The Virgin of all virgins,
Of David’s royal blood.
O teach me, holy Mary,
A loving song to frame,
When wicked men blaspheme thee,
To love and bless thy name.

O noble Tower of David,
Of gold and ivory.
The Ark of God’s own promise,
The gate of Heav’n to me.
To live and not to love thee
Would fill my soul with shame;
When wicked men blaspheme thee,
I’ll love and bless thy name.

The saints are high in glory,
With golden crowns so bright;
But brighter far is Mary,
Upon her throne of light.
Oh that which God did give thee,
Let mortal ne’er disclaim;
When wicked men blaspheme thee,
I’ll love and bless thy name.

But in the crown of Mary,
There lies a wonderous gem,
As Queen of all the angels,
Which Mary shares with them;
No sin hath e’er defiled thee,
So doth our faith proclaim;
When wicked men blaspheme thee,
I’ll love and bless thy name.
