Novena to Our Lady of the Assumption – Day Nine – 14 August

Novena to Our Lady of the Assumption


Daily Prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ,
Thou has destroyed the power of death
and given the hope of eternal life,
for body and soul.
Thou granted Thy Mother
a special place in Thy glory
and did not allow decay to touch her body.
As we rejoice in the Assumption
of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
grant us renewed confidence
in the victory of life over death.

Day 9:
O Blessed Mother Assumed into Heaven,
after years of heroic martyrdom on earth,
we rejoice that thou hast at last
been taken to the throne
prepared for thee in Heaven by the Holy Trinity.
Lift our hearts with thee in the glory of thy Assumption
above the dreadful touch of sin and impurity.
Teach us how small earth becomes
when viewed from Heaven.
Make us realise,
that death is the triumphant gate
through which we shall pass to thy Son
and that someday, our bodies shall rejoin our souls
in the unending bliss of Heaven.
From this earth, which we tread as pilgrims,
we look to thee for hope and help.
In honour of thy Assumption into Heaven,
we ask for this favour:
(Mention your request)

At the hour of our death,
lead us safely to the presence of Jesus
to enjoy the vision of God for all eternity
together with thee.
O Queen Assumed into Heaven, pray for us,
that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.




Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "For the Saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
