Many miracles and graces have been attributed to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, who appeared to Catherine Labouré in 1830 and is celebrated on November 27th every year. One should not hesitate to ask for Our Lady’s intercession in their prayers, for example by beginning a novena. Several novenas to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal exist with each one having different content. The novenas can be prayed from the 19th to the 27th of November which is the feast day of the Miraculous Medal, or at any other time during the year when you feel the need to have your Blessed Mother at your side.
For nine days, you can confide your personal request to the mother of Christ by praying each day:
“O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to You”
Here is a more traditional novena that is prayed for nine days to Our Lady in preparation for her feast day on November 27th.
“In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
O Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of Our Lord Jesus and our Mother, penetrated with the most lively confidence in your all-powerful and never-failing intercession, manifested so often through the Miraculous Medal, we your loving and trustful children implore you to obtain for us the graces and favors we ask during this novena, if they be beneficial to our immortal souls and the souls for whom we pray.
(Mention your request here…)
You know, O Mary, how often our souls have been the sanctuaries of your Son who hates iniquity. Obtain for us then a deep hatred of sin and that purity of heart which will attach us to God alone so that our every thought, word and deed may tend to His greater glory. Obtain for us also a spirit of prayer and self-denial that we may recover by penance what we have lost by sin and at length attain to that blessed abode where you are the Queen of angels and of men. Amen.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us. who have recourse to Thee, and for those who do not have recourse to Thee, especially the enemies of the Church and those recommended Thee, Amen.”
Say 1: Our Father… Say 1: Hail Mary… Say 1: Glory Be…
If Jesus is the way to the Father, the quickest way to Jesus is through Mary! By entrusting our prayers, our hurts and our doubts, we know that she will take them to her Son, Jesus, who will listen to her, just like he did at the wedding of Cana.
