Day 7 Novena Prayer

May all generations proclaim you blessed, O Mary!
You believed the words the Archangel Gabriel spoke to you,
and in you were fulfilled all the great things
he had announced to you…
You had faith
in the Incarnation of the Son of God in your virginal womb,
and you became the Mother of God….
O Mary, obtain for us
a lively, firm, and active faith–
a faith that leads to holiness in this life
and the assurance of eternal life in heaven.

– Blessed James Alberione

Prayer for Day 3 of Novena to Mary, Queen of Apostles 

Immaculate Mary, Co-Redemptrix of the human race, look upon humanity redeemed by the blood of your divine Son, yet still immersed in the darkness of error and confusion. 

The harvest is always great, but the laborers are still very few. Have pity, O Mary upon your children whom the dying Jesus entrusted to you from the cross. Increase religious and priestly vocations; give us new apostles full of wisdom and fervor.

Sustain with your maternal care those who consecrate their lives to the good of their neighbor. Recall your care for Jesus and the apostle John; remember your consoling presence on the day of Pentecost. You were the counselor of the first apostles and of the apostles of all times. By your invincible intercession,  obtain a new Pentecost for all those called to the apostolate, that it may sanctify them and inflame them with holy zeal for the glory of God and the salvation of humanity. Guide them in all their efforts; help them with your graces; sustain them in moments of discouragement; crown their zeal with great success.                                                                                                                                                                                                                            – from Prayers of the Pauline Family
