Our Lady of Lourdes Novena

About Our Lady of Lourdes

“Mercy is the tangible expression of God's love in the world.-

Saint Bernadette was a young girl gathering firewood in the French town of Lourdes with her sister and a friend when the Virgin Mary appeared to her and spoke to her.

Our Lady appeared to Saint Bernadette a total of 18 times! During these apparitions, Bernadette asked her name and Mary replied: “I am the Immaculate Conception.” Another time, Our lady told Bernadette where to dig to find a miraculous spring. And another time, Mary told Bernadette to build a church at the grotto where she had appeared to her.

The image of Mary at Lourdes is known as Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception and Our Lady of the Rosary.

The water from the miraculous spring has cured and healed many people ever since. Millions of pilgrims go to Lourdes to see the place where Mary appeared and to bathe in the spring to be healed and blessed.

Our Lady of Lourdes Novena Prayers

Our Lady of Lourdes, we come to you like little Bernadette at the grotto. We pray with childlike trust in you.

Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, when you appeared in Lourdes, you made it a holy sanctuary where many have obtained the cure of their infirmities, both spiritual and corporal. We pray me with confidence for your holy intercession.

(State your intentions here)

Holy Mother of the Rosary, we feel confident that your prayers on our behalf will be graciously heard by God.

Day 1: Immaculate Mother, show us your mercy, O Mother of God.
Day 2: Immaculate Mother, comfort us in our affliction.
Day 3: Immaculate Mother, pray that we may have hope in times of trial.
Day 4: Immaculate Mother, pray for the grace of God to be our strength.
Day 5: Immaculate Mother, pray that we may reach the consolation of heaven.
Day 6: Immaculate Mother, manifest in us your sweetness and beauty.
Day 7: Immaculate Mother, shower us with the love of your pure heart.
Day 8: Immaculate Mother, fill our hearts with love for Jesus and for you.
Day 9: Immaculate Mother, give us what your motherly heart sees we need at this moment.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, we fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, our mother; to you do we come, before you we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer us.

Amen

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us!

Saint Bernadette, pray for us!

Amen

  10. Had surgery on left kidney. The surgeon removed a three centimeter cancerous tumor that can only be treated by removal. They had to take a rib to get to the kidney. The surgeon would like me to see an oncologist. He believes he removed all the cancer, but could be in other parts of my body.

    I have been praying against cancer and the evils of this disease. I Asked OUR HEAVENLY FATHER to remake me new (a special prayer). I constantly pray the BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST TO WASH OVER ME AND IN ME AS A HOLD ON TO HIS BLOODY CROSS. Say my rosary and mass.

    Both my brothers have passed in less than three months of diagnosis. I all pray my family is ready to let me GO HOME. AS A child I was taught this is not my home heaven is. I am praying against this, while praying for my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
    Thank you

  29. My special prayer request is to Saint Pedro Pio.  I’ve just found out about this saint for motherhood and pregnancy.  I pray our daughter does not suffer any more baby losses and pray she gets to experience the miracle of carrying and delivering a child.
    She has had one stillbirth,  a late miscarriage and a medical extraction due to multiple defects and failure to thrive. Medically, we almost lost our daughter on all three occasions.  She has tried several IUI’s and IVF procedures to no avail.  It has been very discouraging, both physically and emotionally, for her and her husband.  She is older in age now and has given up.  I don’t want to give up, I want to believe there is hope.

    Thank you and God bless.
