The Canticle of Mary (Magnificat)

My soul magnifies the Lord

And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior;
Because He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid;
For behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed;
Because He who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is His name;
And His mercy is from generation to generation
on those who fear Him.
He has shown might with His arm,
He has scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
and has exalted the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich He has sent away empty.
He has given help to Israel, his servant, mindful of His mercy
Even as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity forever.

The Angelus

V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary, R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit. 

Hail Mary full of grace...

V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord, R. Be it done unto me according to your word. 

Hail Mary full of grace....

V. And the Word was made flesh, R. And dwelt among us. 

Hail Mary full of grace....

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God, R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. 

Let us pray. Pour forth, we beg you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts: that we, to whom the Incarnation of Christ your Son was made known by the message of an Angel, may by his Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of his Resurrection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

b) During Paschal Season

V. Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia: R. For he whom you merited to bear, alleluia,

V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia. R. Because the Lord is truly risen, alleluia.  

Let us pray. O God, who by the Resurrection of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, granted joy to the whole world: grant, we beg you, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, his Mother, we may lay hold of the joys of eternal life. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. (Roman Breviary) 

The Miraculous Medal Novena

  

NOVENA OF THE MIRACULOUS MEDAL – Said Weekly on Mondays

Begin with the Sign of the Cross In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
 

Come, O Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Your love.
Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
 

O God, who did instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise and ever to rejoice in His consolation, through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
 

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you. (Said 3x)
 

O Lord Jesus Christ, who has vouchsafed to glorify by numberless miracles the Blessed Virgin Mary,
immaculate from the first moment of her conception, grant that all who devoutly implore her protection on earth, may eternally enjoy Your presence in heaven, who, with the Father and Holy Spirit, live and reign, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
 

O Lord Jesus Christ, who for the accomplishment of Your greatest works, have chosen the weak things of the world, that no flesh may glory in Your sight; and who for a better and more widely diffused belief, in the Immaculate Conception of Your Mother, have wished that the Miraculous Medal
be manifested to Saint Catherine Labouré, grant, we beseech You, that filled with like humility, we may glorify this mystery by word and work. Amen.
 

Memorare
Remember, O most compassionate Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your assistance, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we fly unto you, O Virgin of Virgins, our Mother; to you we come; before you we kneel sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in your clemency hear and answer them. Amen.
 

Novena Prayer
O Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of Our Lord Jesus and our Mother,
penetrated with the most lively confidence in you 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 favours we ask during this novena, if they be beneficial to our immortal souls, and the souls for whom we pray.
 

(State your intention here...)
 

You know, O Mary, how often our souls have been the sanctuaries of you 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.
 

An Act of Consecration to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal
O Virgin Mother of God, Mary Immaculate, we dedicate and consecrate ourselves to you under the title of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. May this Medal be for each one of us a sure sign of your affection for us and a constant reminder of our duties toward you. Ever while wearing it,
may be blessed by your loving protection and preserved in the grace of your Son. O most powerful Virgin, Mother of our Saviour, keep us close to you every moment of our lives. Obtain for us, your children, the grace of a happy death; so that, in union with you, we may enjoy the bliss of heaven forever. Amen.
 

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you. (Said 3x)
