Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary novena Jan. 24-Feb 1

Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary novena Jan. 24-Feb 1

NOVENA: In preparation for the Feast of the Purification

I. Bright mirror of all virtues, holiest Mary, forty days had scarcely elapsed from thy delivery when thou, though the purest of all virgins, didst will, according to the law, to be presented in the temple to be purified: grant that we, like thee, may keep our hearts unstained by sin, that so we, too, may be made worthy to be presented to our God in the temple of his glory.
Hail Mary, etc.

II. Virgin most obedient, at thy presentation in the temple thou didst will, like other women, to offer the wonted sacrifice: obtain for us that we, too, following thy example, may learn how to offer ourselves a living sacrifice to God, by practicing every virtue.
Hail Mary, etc.

III. Virgin most pure, in observing the precept of the law, thou didst care little that men should account thee unclean: ask for us grace to keep our hearts forever pure, however blamable the world may think us.
Hail Mary, etc.

IV. Virgin most holy, in offering thy divine Son to his eternal Father, thou didst gladden all the court of heaven: present our poor hearts to God, that He, by his grace, may keep them ever free from mortal sin.
Hail Mary, etc.

V. Virgin most humble, in placing Jesus in holy old Simeon’s arms, thou didst fill his soul with heavenly joy: give our hearts into God’s holy keeping, that He may fill them with His Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary, etc.

VI. Virgin most zealous, by redeeming thy Son, Jesus, according to the law, thou didst co-operate in the salvation of the world: ransom now our poor hearts from the slavery of sin, that so they may be ever pure before the face of God.
Hail Mary, etc.

VII. Virgin most meek, on hearing the prophecy of Simeon foretelling thy woes, thou didst promptly bow to the good pleasure of God: enable us also to bear all troubles with patience and resignation to His divine will.
Hail Mary, etc.

VIII. Virgin most compassionate, when through thy divine Son thou didst fill the soul of Anna the prophetess with light, thou didst make her magnify the mercies of God by recognizing Jesus as the Redeemer of the world: enrich our souls with heavenly grace, that we may largely share the fruit of the divine redemption.
Hail Mary, etc.

IX. Virgin most resigned, who didst feel thy soul transfixed with sorrow when in spirit thou didst foresee all the bitter passion of thy Son, and, knowing the grief of Joseph, thy spouse, for all thy sufferings, didst with holy words console him: pierce through and through our souls with true sorrow for our sins, that we may one day have the consolation to be made partakers of thy glory in heaven.
Hail Mary, etc.
