Our Lady of Perpetual Help novena June 18-26



Behold at thy feet, O Mother of Perpetual Help, a wretched sinner who has recourse to thee and confides in thee. O Mother of mercy, have pity on me. I hear thee called by all the refuge and the hope of sinners: be then, my refuge and my hope. Assist me, for the love of Jesus Christ; stretch forth thy hand to a miserable fallen creature who recommends himself to thee, and who devotes himself to thy service for ever. I bless and thank Almighty God, who in His mercy has given me this confidence in thee, which I hold to be a pledge of my eternal salvation. It is true that in the past I have miserably fallen into sin, because I had not recourse to thee. I know that, with thy help, I shall conquer. I know, too, that thou wilt assist me, if I recommend myself to thee; but I fear that, in time of danger, I may neglect to call on thee, and thus lose my soul. This grace, then, I ask of thee, and this I beg, with all the fervor of my soul, that in all the attacks of hell I may ever have recourse to thee. O Mary, help me. O Mother of Perpetual Help, never suffer me to lose my God.—3 Hail Marys.

O Mother of Perpetual Help, grant that I may ever invoke thy most powerful name, which is the safeguard of the living and the salvation of the dying. O purest Mary, O sweetest Mary, let thy name henceforth be ever on my lips. Delay not, O Blessed Lady, to help me, whenever I call on thee; for, in all my temptations, in all my needs, I shall never cease to call on thee, ever repeating thy sacred name, Mary, Mary. O what consolation, what sweetness, what confidence, what emotion, fill my soul when I utter thy sacred name, or even only think of thee. I thank the Lord for having given thee, for my good, so sweet, so powerful, so lovely a name. But I will not be content with merely uttering thy name. Let my love for thee prompt me ever to hail thee, Mother of Perpetual Help.—3 Hail Marys.

O Mother of Perpetual Help, thou art the dispenser of all the gifts which God grants to us miserable sinners; and for this end He has made thee so powerful, so rich, and so bountiful, in order that thou mayest help us in our misery. Thou art the advocate of the most wretched and abandoned sinners who have recourse to thee: come to my aid, for I recommend myself to thee. In thy hands I place my eternal salvation, and to thee I entrust my soul. Count me among thy most devoted servants; take me under thy protection, and it is enough for me. For, if thou protect me, I fear nothing; not from my sins, because thou wilt obtain for me the pardon of them; nor from the devils, because thou art more powerful than all hell together; nor even from Jesus, my judge, because by one prayer from thee He will be appeased. But one thing I fear: that in the hour of temptation I may through negligence fail to have recourse to thee and thus perish miserably. Obtain for me, therefore, the pardon of my sins, love for Jesus, final perseverance, and the grace ever to have recourse to thee, O Mother of Perpetual Help.—3 Hail Marys.

  1. Thank you, Cindy! I keep this devotion daily and have for years,

  2. Prayed 1st day.
    What a wonderful devotion to pray daily.
    I think I shall imitate you.
    You are good for my spiritual life, Patrick!
    God bless you, dear friend.

  3. If ANYTHING I’ve ever suggested, Cindy, was helpful, PLEASE credit my Patron Saint instead of me! I pray from Saint Patrick’s “Tara” for you and zuzu daily for each of your intentions. I merely pop my requests into the “suggestion box” and if anything good results, believe me, it’s only because a Saint stepped in, saying, “Nice try, Junior. I’ll take it from here!”

    Seriously, though, the prayers in the OLPH novena are so thoroughly rich in authentic Marian theologynl, so truly orthodox that I cannot help but pray them.

    If you would, please pray for my late father, George. Today would have been his 94th birthday. Thank you!

  4. Mea Culpa.
    Through your Patron Saint and your Guardian Angel, you are good for my spiritual life, Patrick.
    Thank you for praying for zuzu and me.
    I will say a rosary for your Father.
    God bless you dearest friend!

  5. Prayed day 1 for everybody’s intentions.
    How are you doing, Patrick? I’ve been praying for your health in all my novenas since last summer. I will remember your dad in my Rosary tonight.

    • Thank you so very much, zuzu! My Dad was a fabulous gentleman. He was received into the Church at age 81. I brought him with me to the Missa Cantata at St. Anthony’s in Buffalo every Sunday until his health gave out.
