| My dearest Mother Mary, behold
me, your child, in prayer at your feet. Accept this Holy Rosary,
which I offer you in accordance with your requests at Fatima,
as a proof of my tender love for you, for the intentions of
the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in atonement for the offenses committed
against your Immaculate Heart, and for this special favor which
I earnestly request in my Rosary Novena: (Mention your
I beg you to present my petition to your Divine
Son. If you will pray for me, I cannot be refused. I know, dearest
Mother, that you want me to seek God’s holy Will concerning my
request. If what I ask for should not be granted, pray that I may
receive that which will be of greater benefit to my soul.
I offer you this spiritual “Bouquet of Roses” because
I love you. I put all my confidence in you, since your prayers
before God are most powerful. For the greater glory of God and
for the sake of Jesus, your loving Son, hear and grant my prayer.
Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation.
This novena is to be said along
with a daily rosary.
“Listen, my faithful children; open up your petals,
like roses planted near running waters; send up the sweet
odor of incense, break forth in blossoms like the lily. Send
up the sweet odor of your hymn of praise; bless the Lord for
all he has done.” (Sir 39:13-14)
