I will bless those places wherein the image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored and will imprint My love on the hearts of those who would wear this image on their person. I will also destroy in them all disordered movements. I will give to priests who are animated by a tender devotion to my Divine Heart the gift of touching the most hardened hearts. I promise you in the excessive mercy of my Heart that my all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the First Friday in nine consecutive months, the grace of final penitence: they will not die in my disgrace, nor without receiving their Sacraments.
My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment. So our goal while praying this novena is to unite ourselves with Christ in all that we do — referring everything we do to His glory, and accepting all sufferings and difficulties as something to bring us even closer to the love He shares with us —with a real and physical heart, symbolizing his eternal and infinite charity. Going to Confession and receiving the Eucharist on the first Friday of each month, for nine consecutive months.

The truth is we can go wrong when we do not keep the promises we make to Mary. When we pray to Mary, we entrust our lives with her, which means we promise to trust all that Mary gives us to help us with our lives. When we open our hearts to Mary, we promise to open our hearts to the Holy Trinity because Mary is the one human being perfectly united with God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Let us ask ourselves, when we pray the Hail Mary, especially in the Rosary, are we giving Mary full rein to our hearts, minds, and souls?
Or does the repetition of the prayer become mechanical? The more we absorb this prayer into our being, the more we embrace all that our Heavenly Mother wants for us—that is to be brothers and sisters to her Son Jesus Christ.

Hail Mary, etc. Behold the handmaid of the Lord. Be it done unto me according to Thy word. And the Word was made Flesh. And dwelt among us. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Through the same Christ Our Lord. My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit finds joy in God my savior; for he has looked upon His servant in her lowliness; all ages to come shall call me blessed. God who is mighty has done great things for me, holy is His name; His mercy is from age to age on those who fear Him.

He has shown might with His arm; He has confused the proud in their inmost thoughts. He has deposed the mighty from their thrones and raised the lowly to high places. The hungry He has given every good thing, while the rich He has sent empty away. He has upheld Israel his servant, ever mindful of His mercy; Even as He promised our fathers, promised Abraham and His descendants forever.

O Mary, my Mother, I offer you my soul, my mind, and my heart. Make of me God's instrument. Give me a penetrating mind to discover, firm to judge, open to understand, free to serve the truth; an honest mind in telling what it sees rather than what it wants to see; a tolerant mind which does not dictate to other people, but which explain what it sees clearly; a mind infused by the light and the truth of your Son Jesus, patient in faith, while waiting for the vision of eternal life.

O Mary - Queen, Spouse, and Mother of God - we ask you to intercede with God for one of the Earth's most valuable and needed resources, our nuns. May their contemplative prayer be a source of power and energy which leads the entire world to better see the Face of God. May their service be cheerful, effective, rewarding, and Christ-like, because He has entrusted to their care His sick, His poor, His troubled brothers and sisters, and His children.
May their purity and their burning love for Jesus give them unspeakable joy and ignite that same love in our hearts. May their detachment from material things and their attachment to the divine King and His Kingdom shower both them and us with eternal riches. May their obedience and fidelity to the Church and to God's will give them strength, courage, peace, and contentment, and be an inspiration for all of us. In short, may they be perfect brides of Christ - and more and more like you.
O Virgin of the Angels, who has for centuries established your throne of mercy at the Porziuncula, hear the prayer of your children, who trust in you. From this truly holy place and the habitation of the Lord, so dear to the heart of Saint Francis, you have always invited all men to love. Your tender eyes assure us of a never failing motherly help and a promise of divine help to all those who humbly have recourse to your throne, or who from afar, turn to you to ask for help.
You are, indeed, our sweet Queen and our only hope. O Lady of the Angels, obtain for us, through the intercession of blessed Francis, pardon for our sins, help us to keep away from sin and indifference, so that we shall be worthy of calling you our Mother for evermore. Bless our homes, our toil and our rest, by giving us that same serenity we experience within the walls of the Porziuncula, where hate, guilt and tears turn into a song of joy like that once was sung by the Angels and the seraphic Francis. Help those who are in need and hungry, those who are in danger of body and soul, those who are sad and downhearted, those who are sick and dying.
Bless us, your most beloved children, and we pray you, bless also with the same motherly gesture, all those who are innocent, together with those are guilty; those who are faithful, together with those who have gone astray; those who believe, together with those who are in doubt. Bless all humanity, so that all men acknowledging that they are God's children, would find through love, real peace and real good. O Immaculate Mother, Queen of Heaven, hear the cries of your suffering children in purgatory and intercede for them at the throne of the Almighty.

Mother Mary, bless the mother of our family. Help her to be pure and kind, gentle and self-sacrificing. For the more she resembles you, the better will our family be.
Saint Joseph, bless the head of our family. Obtain for him the strength, the wisdom, and the prudence he needs to support and direct those under his care. Lord Jesus, bless the children of our family. Help them to be obedient and devoted to their parents. Holy Family of Nazareth, make our family and home more and more like yours, until we are all one family, happy and at peace in our true home with you in Heaven. My Queen, my Mother, I give myself entirely to thee, and to show my devotion to thee, I consecrate to thee this day, my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart, my whole being without reserve.
Wherefore good Mother as I am thine own, keep me, guard me, as thy property and possession. O most Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of gentleness and mercy, I, an unworthy sinner, fly to you with sentiments of confidence and love. I beg you who stood close to your most beloved Son as He hung upon the cross, graciously to remain near me, a miserable sinner, and near all priests who throughout the whole Church will offer Holy Mass this day. By your gracious favor help me to offer a sacrifice which is worthy and acceptable in sight of the most high and undivided Trinity.
O most holy, most amiable and most glorious Virgin, Mother of God. Mistress and Advocate to whom we are all vowed and consecrated, making it our glory to belong to thee as children, servants and slaves for time and eternity, behold! We wish to have no other liberty except that of loving Him, no other glory except that of belonging to Him as slaves and victims of His pure love, no other will or power but that of pleasing Him and contenting Him in everything, even at the price of our lives.
And since thou hast all power over the amiable Heart of thy Divine Son, grant, O most charitable Mother, that He may receive and accept this consecration which we make today in thy presence, and through thy mediation, with the protestations of our fidelity, relying on His grace and thy help, which we beg thee not to refuse us. O, our sweet Hope, make us feel thy power over the amiable Heart of Jesus, and use thy influence on our behalf to lodge us there always. Pray Him to exercise His sovereign empire over our souls, making His love reign in our hearts, in order that He may consume us and transform us entirely into Himself.
May He be our Father, our Spouse, our Protection, our Treasure, our Delight, our Love and our All in all things; may He destroy and annihilate in us all that is of ourselves and put in place of it all that is of Himself, in order that we may be able to be pleasing to Him. May He be the support of our powerlessness, the strength of our weakness, the joy of all our sadness. O Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, repair all our failings, supply for all that is wanting to us, burn our hearts in your holy ardors; consume all our coldness and cowardice in loving and serving you, since we wish to make all our holiness and happiness consist in living and dying in the state of slaves of the adorable Heart of Jesus, and servants of His holy Mother.
Remember, O most loving Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we turn to you, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother. To you we come, before you we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, do not despise our petitions, but in your mercy hear us and answer us.
O Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of mercy, pray for me that I may be preserved this night all evil, whether of body or soul. Dear St. Joseph, all the saints and angels, and especially you, my guardian angel and my chosen patron, watch over me. I commend myself to your protection now and always.

Night is falling, dear Mother, the long day is o'er, And before thy loved image I'm kneeling once more, To thank thee for keeping me safe through the day, To ask thee this night to keep evil away. Many times have I fallen today, Mother dear; Many graces neglected since last I knelt here. Wilt thou not in pity, my own Mother mild, Ask Jesus to pardon the sins of thy child?
I am going to rest, for the day's work is done, Its hours and moments have passed one by one. And the God Who will judge me has counted them all; He has numbered each grace, He has counted each fall. In His book they are written against the last day 0 Mother, ask Jesus to wash them away; For one drop of His Blood for which sinners was spilt Is sufficient to cleanse the whole world from its guilt. And if e'er the dawn I should draw my last breath; If the sleep that I take be the long sleep of death, Be near me, dear Mother, for Jesus' dear sake When my soul on Eternity's shore shall awake.
Good and Gentle God, we pray in gratitude for our mothers and for all the women of theory who have joined with you in the wonder of bringing forth new life. You who became human through a woman, grant to all mothers the courage they need to face the uncertain future that life with children always brings.
Give them the strength to live and to be loved in return, not perfectly, but humanly. Give them the faithful support of husband, family and friends as they care for the physical and spiritual growth of their children. Give them joy and delight in their children to sustain them through the trials of motherhood. Most of all, give them the wisdom to turn to you for help when they need it most. You have asked us to pray with confidence, and we will receive great graces. In your union with his suffering you became the mother of us all. Mary, my mother, teach me to understand my suffering as you do and to endure it in union with the suffering of Jesus.
In your motherly love, calm my fears and increase my trust in God's loving care. According to God's plan, obtain for me the healing I need.
Pray for Us Sinners
Intercede with your Son that I may have the strength I need to work for God's glory and the salvation of the world.

Is it Okay for Christians to Pray to Mary?
Teach my searching heart to know that God's Love for me is unchanging and unchangeable; and, that true human love can only begin and grow by touching His Love. Let your gentle peace which this world cannot give be always with me. And, help me to bring this same peace into the lives of others. Our Lady of Mental Peace, Pray for us.
For the love Thou doth bear to those who ask forgiveness, look on me with mercy, as once Thou didst look on Mary Magdalen, and on Peter who denied Thee. Look on me, Lord Jesus Christ, as Thou didst looked at the thief on his cross and on every sinner whom Thou hast ever forgiven. Let me feel in my heart her compassion for Thee, and let my eyes weep for Thy sorrows, caused by my sinful life. Call me back from the darkness to my Father's house, give me a new heart and a place at Thy side in the banquet Thou hast prepared for me.
Hail, Mary, my joy, my glory, my heart and my soul! Thou art all mine through thy mercy, and I am all thine. But I am not thine completely enough. Destroy in me all that may be displeasing to God. Place and cultivate in me everything that is pleasing to thee. In the name of the Blood of the Victim of Reparation and of thy holy tears; in the name of the seven swords which pierced thy heart, by which thou didst become the Mediatrix of all graces for the human race and the Queen of Martyrs, have pity on my soul and on all its miseries; have pity on sinners and on the innocent souls they seek to pervert; have pity on the poor, the sick, the infirm, on all their sufferings, both physical and moral; have pity on the agonizing, especially upon those who, except for thine intercession, would leave this world without being purified in the Blood of the Lamb.
It is by the Blood of thy Dying Son, by His inexpressible Sufferings, by His last plea to His Father in favor of mankind, by His ignominious death and by the perpetuation of His Sacrifice on Catholic Altars, that I beg thee not to reject my supplications, but graciously to hear them. Most Holy and Immaculate Virgin, Help of Christians, we place ourselves under your motherly protection. Throughout the Church's history you have helped Christians in times of trial, temptation and danger.
