Novena to the Immaculate Conception

The Immaculate Conception


In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

O most pure Virgin Mary conceived without sin from the very first instant, you were entirely immaculate. O glorious Mary full of grace, you are the mother of my God – Queen of the Angels and of men. I humbly venerate you as the chosen mother of my Savior, Jesus Christ.

The Prince of Peace and the Lord of Lords chose you for the singular grace and honor of being His beloved mother. By the power of His Cross, He preserved you from all sin. Therefore, by His power and love, I have hope and bold confidence in your prayers for my holiness and salvation.

I pray that your prayers will bring me to imitate your holiness and submission to Jesus and the Divine Will. Queen of Heaven, I beg you to beg my Savior to grant me these requests…

(Mention Your Intentions)

  • I PRAY for Bishop Strickland to receive all the graces needed to carry out the mission given to him by God the Almighty Father.
  • I PRAY for Bishop Strickland to be led by the Holy Spirit in all his daily actions carried out with Divine Wisdom as he guides his flock to eternal happiness in heaven.
  • I PRAY for Bishop Strickland to be continually protected by the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus as he defends the True Catholic Faith and the Sanctity of Life.
  • I PRAY also for State Senator Bryan Hughes, who authored the Texas Heartbeat Law. Bless and protect him, his family and his good work for the sanctity of life and for the sovereignty of the states.
  • I PRAY also for the increase, within our Diocese, of priestly vocations and for all seminarians and religious.

My holy Mother, I know that you were obedient to the will of God. In making this petition, I know that God’s will is more perfect than mine. So, grant that I may receive God’s grace with humility as you did.

As my final request, I ask that you pray for me to increase in faith in our risen Lord; I ask that you pray for me to increase in hope in our risen Lord; I ask that you pray for me to increase in love for the risen Jesus.

Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

O Mary, Conceived Without Sin,
Pray For Us Who Have Recourse to Thee!
