Prayers

Daily Prayer for Purity Of Heart

For Jesus, there is no hopeless situation! He can heal even the most wounded heart! We all only want true love, regardless of the state to which the Lord calls us, therefore we entrust ourselves to Him who created us – the One Expert – Jesus Christ, asking that He teaches us how to love and that He heals our wounded hearts.

“Only a pure heart can fully accomplish the great work of love which is marriage.” – Pope John Paul II

The Three Hail Marys Devotion

Recite morning and evening, three Hail Marys in honour of the three great privileges bestowed upon Our Blessed Mother by the most Blessed Trinity with this invocation at the end: for the morning: “O my Mother preserve me from mortal sin during this day.” For the evening: “O my Mother preserve me from mortal sin during this night.” This practice was revealed to St. Melchtilde (13th century) while she was beseeching Our Blessed Mother to assist her in her hour of death. Our Lady appeared to her and said: “I will, certainly. But I also want you to say three special Hail Marys to me every day.

9 Days Novena to Our Lady of Pompeii

Our Lady never abandons her children, and the most unlikely places have been chosen by her to display the wonders she can perform for those who are devoted to her. The instrument she used for her conquest was Bartolo Longo (1841–1926), who would at first appear to be a most unlikely choice…. Bartolo arranged for the building of a magnificent church. While it was being built, three people were healed by outstanding miracles.

Twenty Saturdays Devotion

It begins twenty Saturdays preceding the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, 7th October. Our Lady Queen of Rosary blesses those who practice the 20 Saturdays Devotion with special favours, as evidenced by numerous testimonies…. This devotion spread all over the world mainly thanks to Bl. Bartola Longo (…)

Novena to St. Peregrine

Oh great Saint Peregrine,
you who have been called “The Mighty”
and “The Wonder-Worker”
because of the numerous miracles
which you have obtained from God
for those who have had recourse to you. (…)

Novena To Our Lady Of Good Counsel

O Holy Virgin,
to whose feet we are led by our anxious uncertainty
in our search for and attainment of what is true and good,
invoking you by the sweet title of Mother of Good Counsel,
we beseech you to come to our assistance,
when, along the road of this life,
the darkness of error
and of evil conspires towards our ruin
by leading our minds and our hearts astray. (…)

Novena to Saint Louis de Montfort

Hail Mary, beloved Daughter of the Eternal Father! Hail Mary, admirable Mother of the Son! Hail Mary, faithful spouse of the Holy Ghost! Hail Mary, my dear Mother, my loving Mistress, my powerful sovereign! Hail my joy, my glory, my heart and my soul! Thou art all mine by mercy, and I am all thine by justice. (…)

Novena to St Mark (The Evangelist)

O glorious St Mark, through the grace of God our Father, you became a great Evangelist, preaching the Good News of Christ. May you help us to know Him well so that we may faithfully live our lives as followers of Christ. (…)
