Novena of Our Lady of Medjugorje

 

O Mother of goodness, love and mercy, I love you infinitely and I offer myself to you.  By means of your gooodness, your love and your grace, save me.  I desire to be yours. I love you infinitely, and desire you to protect me.

 

Devotion to Our Lady of Medjugorje has sprung up almost immediately after the revelation to the visionaries in 1981.

 

These messages are spoken to the world so many may convert from their profane living and repent that they may live their lives in service of Our Lord Jesus.

 

The summons of Our Blessed Lady is for all and anyone who would hear her.

 

Prayer to the Mother of Goodness, Love and Mercy Queen of Peace

 

O Mother of goodness, love and mercy, I love you infinitely and I offer myself to you. By means of your goodness, your love and your grace, save me.  I desire to be yours.  I love you infinitely and desire you to protect me.

 

From the depth of my heart I pray you, Mother of goodness. Let me gain heaven by means of it. I pray you, by your infinite love, to give me the grace, so that I may love every man, as you have loved Jesus Christ. I pray you to give me the grace to be mericful towards you.

 

I offer myself to you completely and desire that you follow my every step, because you are full of grace and I desire that I will never forget this. And if, by chance, I should lose grace I pray you to restore it to me once more. Amen.
