NOVENA These days we cleanse our soul to imitate our Holy Mother’s virtues
Like the Virgin Mary, we are God’s instruments Day 1 “She will give birth to a son and you must name him Jesus, because he is the one who is to save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1, 21)
Go with the Virgin, She wants to take you to Heaven. Day 2 “The angel answered, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow. And so the child will be holy and will be called Son of God.” (Luke 1, 35)
Be helpful in each little detail of your daily life. Day 3 “Mary said, ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said. And the angel left her.” (Luke 1, 38)
Treasure and ponder the Gospel in your heart as our Mother did. Day 4 “’Let us go to Bethlehem and see this event which the Lord has made known to us’. So they hurried away and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger. When they saw the child they repeated what they had been told about him, and everyone who heard it was astonished at what the shepherds said to them. As for Mary, she treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart.” (Luke 2, 15-20)
Our sins hurt our Holy Mother, Be faithful! Day 5 “As the child’s father and mother were wondering at the things that were being said about him, Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, ‘Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed –and a sword will pierce your soul too- so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare’”. Luke 2, 33-35
Be obedient (as our Mother was) Day 6 “Jesús said, ‘Woman, what do you want from me? My hour has not come yet.’ His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’ (John 2, 4-6)
Pray! Day 7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. Everyone who asks receives; everyone who searches finds, everyone who knocks will have the door opened.” (Matthew 7, 7-8)
He gave us his mother, take care of Her. Day 8 “Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother’. (John, 19, 26 – 27)
Come Holy Spirit Fill the Hearts of your Faithful and enkindle.. Day 9 With one heart all these joined constantly in prayer, together with some women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, … When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together, …They were all filled with the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 1, 14 -4)
