NOVENA TO MARY, MOTHER OF LIFE

It is time to stop the wholesale slaughter of innocents! Our Lady is the one who can make it happen. Please join us in praying this powerful novena to Mary, Mother of Life.  Through the novena, we ask her to convert our culture toward respect and protection for the life of every human being at every stage, as we ask for the courage to persevere in prayer and sacrifice until the culture of death that permeates our society is driven out. She will not fail to come to our aid if we humbly and persistently ask for her help.

MEDITATIONS

“In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth to a virgin…And the virgin’s name was Mary.” (Luke 1:26-27)
Mary, you responded to God’s startling message, delivered to you by Gabriel, with obedience and abandonment to become the mother of the Messiah.
Mary, help me to follow your example of obedience to the Will of God.
 
“The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow.” (Luke 1:35)
The Spirit of the Eternal love descended upon you as you offered yourself to God.  In the fruit of your womb, Jesus, all wombs are blessed with new life through Him and become sacred and safe places.
Mary, help me to thank Jesus for the gift of new life.
 
“And Mary went with haste to a Judean town in the hill country, where she entered the house of Zechariah.  When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting the child leaped in her womb.” (Luke 1:39-41)
 Mary, you believed the sign of the pregnancy of your cousin, Elizabeth, as God’s affirmation of His promises to you.  The presence of the Incarnate Word in your womb prompted the giving of sanctifying grace to John the Baptist six months into the pregnancy of Elizabeth, his mother.
Mary, help me to share Jesus with everyone I meet.
 
“And she brought forth her only begotten Son.” (Luke 2:7)
Mary, your grace-filled pregnancy advanced through the various stages until, with great passionate joy, you gave birth to Jesus the Christ in Bethlehem.
Mary, help me to wait patiently on the Will of God in my life.
 
“When the time came for her purification according to the law of Moses, they brought Him up to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord.” (Luke 2:27)
Mary and Joseph with total obedience to the law of God, had Jesus circumcised.  Simeon prophesized that a sword would pierceyour heart when you surrendered your Son to the culture of death.
Mary, help me to take up my cross and follow Jesus.
 
“They found him in the Temple seated among the teachers…”  (Luke 2:46)
Mary, Mother of Life, you carefully nourished the Son of God, your Son until the time came for Him to fulfill the Will of the Father and declare Himself Messiah.
Mary, help me to be obedient to you, as Jesus was at Nazareth.

THE MAGNIFICAT

My soul glorifies the Lord,
My spirit rejoices in God, my Savior.
He looks on His servant in her lowliness,
Henceforth all ages will call me blessed.
The Almighty works marvels for me.
Holy is His name.
His mercy is from age to age,
On those who fear Him.
He puts forth His arm in strength
And scatters the proud-hearted.
He casts the mighty from their thrones
And raises the lowly.
He fills the starving with good things,
Sends the rich away empty.
He protects Israel, His servant,
Remembering His mercy,
The mercy promised to our fathers,
To Abraham and his sons forever.

 
Glory be to the Father, to the Son and to Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning,
is now and will be forever.
Amen
