NOVENA TO OUR LADY OF LOURDES
3 - 11 February 2015
God of mercy,
we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes,
the sinless mother of Jesus, your Son.
May her prayers help us
to rise above our human weakness.
We ask this through
our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Make your special request now
