Our Lady’s Altar for the Novena at Santissima Trinita dei Pellegrini, Rome. On our Lady’s Feast, a heart will be presented to our Lady with the names of all those who wish to consecrate themselves to our Lady and her intentions. I will include in my intentions all those who pray this novena.

Day I. O Virgin Mother, who didst deign to appear in the solitude of the mountains of Fatima to the three little shepherds, teaching us thus, that we must also seek solitude in retreat and deal with God for the good of our souls; grant us the love for prayer and recollection, so that we can hear the voice of the Lord, and faithfully fulfill His most holy will.

My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You.

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference with which He Himself is offended. And, through the infinite merits of His most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of You the conversion of poor sinners.
Hail Mary, etc.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Day II. O Most Pure Virgin, who is adorned in the whiteness of snow, appearing to the simple and innocent little pastors, teaching in this way, how much we have to love the innocence of the body and the soul, which the Lord granted us in our Holy Baptism, make us to value this supernatural gift, that we may never scandalize our neighbor by word or action, but rather help innocent souls to preserve this divine treasure.

Day III. O Mary, Mother of sinners, while appearing at Fatima you let us see a slight shadow of sadness in your heavenly appearance, a sign of the pain caused by the offenses we commit against your divine Son, grant us the grace of a perfect contrition in the resolve to confess our sins with sincerity in the holy tribunal of penance.
