NOVENA TO OUR LADY OF GOOD HEALTH
"OUR LADY OF VAILANKANNI"





I. NOVENA PRAYER

O Most Holy Virgin ! You were chosen by the most Adorable Trinity from all eternity to be most pure Mother of Jesus.

Permit me your humble and devoted Client, to remind you of the joy you received at the instance of the most Sacred Incarnation of our Divine Lord, and during the nine months you carried him in your chaste womb.

I wish most sincerely that I could renew, or even increase that joy by the fervour of my prayers.

O Tender Mother of the Afflicted ! grant me under my present necessities that special protection you have promised to those who devoutly commemorate this ineffable joy.

Relying on the infinite mercies of your Divine Son, trusting that those who ask should receive and penetrated with confidence in your powerful prayers, I most humbly entreat you to intercede for me.

I beg you to obtain for me the favours which I petition for in this novena, if it be the Holy Will of God to grant them; and if not, to ask for me whatever graces I most stand in need of. (Make Your Request)

I desire by this Novena which I now offer in your honour, to prove the lively confidence I have in your intercession.

Accept it I beseech you, in honour of that supernatural love and joy, with which your Immaculate Heart replenished during the abode of your Divine Son in your womb, in veneration of which, I offer you the sentiments of my hearts.

O Mother of God, accept these salutations in union with the respect and veneration with which the Angel Gabriel first Hailed you ďFull of GraceĒ I wish most sincerely that they may become so many gems in the crown of your occidental Glory, which will increase in brightness to the end of the world.

I beseech you, O Comfortress of the Afflicted, by the joy you received, when the Word was made flesh, to obtain for me the favours and graces which I now implore through your powerful Intercession.

For this end I offer you all the good works which have ever been performed in your honour. I most humbly entreat you, for the love of the amiable Heart of Jesus, with which yours was ever so inflamed, to hear my humble prayers and obtain my requests.

Amen.

O Immaculate Virgin! Godís Sublime Creation! The Almighty has done great things in you. As he gathered all Waters in the Sea at the time of Creation, He has enriched you with His Richness of Grace and Beauty. O Renowned Fame of the Human Race! Supreme Beauty of the Earth! Holy Temple of God! Garden of the Blessed Trinity we Praise you.

We pray to you, Dear Mother of Health, to intercede for the Church, for the Holy Father and all Men of good will. Protect all your Children and obtain for them Health of Soul and Body.

Holy Mother, save the youth from the danger of falling into the darkness of sin and guide them along the path of Purity. Preserve the Virgins in their Chastity; Protect the bond of Love in every Family.

Indeed, you are the Model to the Parents; Protector of the Widows, Shelter of the Broken-Hearted, Treasure for the Needy and Health of the Sick. We beg you to obtain for us the Grace and Love of God so that we may remain Faithful Children of God.


SECOND DAY

Our Dear Mother, you are the Splendour of the Race of David, the Gem among the Jewish Women. We admire your Beauty. You were born Immaculate to destroy the Kingdom of Satan. You brought forth Christ, the Divine Light to remove the darkness of Sin from the World.

O Virgin undefiled, and Mother most Amiable, we have recourse to you with full confidence. Our hearts are delighted as we utter your sweet name Mary our Mother; grant us Health of mind and body and lead us in the path of Light and Holiness AMEN.


THIRD DAY

Hail, Mother of our Love! You are our Model of Holy Life. Renouncing all Earthly Affection, you consecrated yourself to God and spent your days in prayer in His temple.

But we who have been consecrated through baptism have not been faithful to our baptismal promise. Often we failed and become unfaithful Children. We sought after the worldly amusements. We offended our Divine Redeemer by our Sins.

Immaculate Mother who brought the Divine Mercy to us Sinners, we regret for all our Sins and beg through you for Godís Mercy and Pardon. Stretch out your loving arms towards us, that we may drink the living water of Christ within your Embrace AMEN.


FOURTH DAY

Hail Mary, Full of Grace ! you have been raised to the dignity of the Mother of God by your submission. The God of grace assumed our human nature and lived in your Blessed Womb. You are blessed among Women.

We pray to you that we may bear in us our Loving God and be filled with his Grace. Help us that we may be humble and chaste to resemble you, and be enriched with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.

We ardently desire to be united with our God through the fruitful reception of the Sacraments. Oh, Our Heavenly Mother, we call you blessed and entreat you to bless us all with your loving Arms which embraced our Divine Master AMEN.

O Spotless Virgin Mother of Health our Heavenly Benefactress, Hail ! Elizabeth received many favours for herself and for her Family during your stay at her home.

Choosing the Holy Shrine as the place of your Throne, you bless and obtain numerous favours for all those who seek your help; the blind obtain their sight, the dumb speak, the lame walk, the sick with no other hope of cure, our cured by you.

Merciful Mother, we thank you for your favours shown to our Brethren in need, and through you we adore and glorify your Almighty son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

We pray to intercede for us in all our needs as your Motherly heart knows them. Obtain Godís mercy for those who offended Him, and convert such hardened Sinners to become his true friends AMEN.

O Immaculate Mother, who can ever describe your Renowned Fame ? The God of Heaven came to this Earth through you. Bearing Jesus in you, you gave Him your whole self to form His human body.

Virgin Mother of God, we praise you and pay our homage to you. You, who reside in heaven with your Divine Son, are our Sweetness; you, who radiate the Light of the Eternal Light, are our Guide; we pray you to teach us to Love your Divine Son more and more.

We acknowledge Him to be our King, and you to be our Queen, He is our Mediator between the Heavenly Father and the Human Race; You are the Mediatrix between our Lord and us, The Poor Sinners. Jesus is the Way and you are its Entrance.

O Fair Flower of the Race of David, through you our Creator became our Redeemer; the God of all present was carried in your Blessed Womb; the God who feeds all, was fed by you, most noble Mother, all Generations call you Blessed.

We pray you to show your Motherly love towards us, your poor children, and to lead us to Eternal salvation AMEN.


SEVENTH DAY

O Merciful Mother of Dolours, you suffered with your Divine Son for our sake. We grieve for all our sins and offer our sufferings in union with you, so that we may obtain Godís mercy.

We pray you to remove form our hearts all sinful affections and inclinations, and to inflame within our souls the ever glowing love for God. Our Loving Mother most pure ! defend us from all dangers both of soul and body.

Like the birds that escapes in the air at the sight of a hunter, and like the deer that hides in its shelter at the sight of a tiger, we have our recourse to your most Immaculate Heart, where we are sure to be safe.

Holy Mother, lead us all safe till we reach our Eternal Life, where we will praise God in union with you for ever and ever AMEN.


EIGHTH DAY

Hail, Holy Temple of God and seat of wisdom. The Ark of the Covenant was made of Cedar and covered with Gold. God has adorned you with all Graces and Immortality.

Virgin Mother conceived without original sin, pray for us your poor Children that we may also assume your Glorious Body at the time of our Resurrection. Make Eternal Light enlighten our darkened ways, so that we may wake up and reach safely our destination.

We are your Children, entrusted to your Motherly care by your Divine Son, while He was on the Cross. Our Dearest Mother protect us, obtain for us all that we need for our Soul, and preserve us all in good health AMEN.
