    Day 9


    O God, You have been pleased to bestow upon us unceasing favors by having placed us under the special protection of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary. Grant us, your humble servants, who rejoice in honoring her today upon earth, the happiness of seeing her face to face in heaven. We pray especially for those desiring to conceive a child, and those suffering after miscarriage and infant loss. This we ask you, dear Lady of Guadalupe.

    Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

    Hail Mary, full of grace. Our 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.

    Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

    As our novena comes to an end, please know that the very special intention of praying for those desiring to conceive a child, and those suffering after miscarriage and infant loss, that very special intention will be remembered by me in a particular way throughout this Advent and Christmas season. May the God of Hope grant your holy desires. Amen.

    And may Almighty God bless you in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
