ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY NOVENA – DAY 8

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 VIII)

Above all, given the antecedent clarifications, the Church in her wisdom, and guided by the Holy Spirit affirms that Mary was taken into heaven – that is, body and soul. Even as the event (story) of Mary being taken up to heaven is not literarily contained in Scripture (since everything cannot be contained therein); however, the teaching remains deeply rooted in the Scripture as explained above. For these reasons, on November 1, 1950, Pope Pius XII defined the Assumption of Mary to be a dogma of faith in his apostolic constitution “Munificentissimus Deus,” saying: “We pronounce, declare, and define it to be a divinely revealed dogma that the Immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul to heavenly glory.” This is called the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary into heaven and it is celebrated every 15th day of August. It is a holy day of obligation, and Catholics are obliged to attend Mass.

May the good Lord continually grant each and every one of us the grace to continue to fight the good fight, so that after the completion of the course of our earthly lives, or at the last day, we might be “taken up” into the clouds to meet the Lord and our Blessed Mother, and be given the crown of unfading glory, Amen.

Silent Prayer and Reflection…

DAY 8 PRAYER

Assumption Novena: Day 8 - Church of Saint Mary

O dearest Mother, like your Son, you allowed yourself to be ensnared by the powers of death at the completion of your earthly course, but without delay you broke the siege, turning your apparent defeat into resounding triumph by the grace of the most bountiful God. You who gave our Lord Jesus Christ your very flesh and blood was deemed fit by the Almighty to rise into glory, the same way the body of Our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into glory. Grant that through your prayers and aid, we too, your faithful children, may rise into glory after the completion of our earthly lives. 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 AnthemFile:Bartolome Murillo - Assumption of the Virgin.jpg - Wikimedia Commons

1. Mary, let Perpetual Succour
Be the answer, to our prayer,
For thy Son, of all the wretched
Gives to thee perpetual care.

Chorus:
Ever ready help hast thou,
Let thy children feel it now.

2. Of our passions we are weary,
Weary of the yoke of sin;
Yet though longing to be holy,
Faint of heart we ne’er begin.

3. Though we try to rise, yet ever
Down in misery we fall;
So like feeble children sadly,
For our Mother’s help we call.

4. Let us feel thy help in sorrow,
Mourners look for joy to thee:
Spurn not God’s unhappy creatures,
Whatsoe’er their faults may be.

5. Succour all, both priests and people,
Who to thee their homage pay,
Toiling men and praying women,
Help them on thy festal day.
