I am so glad we have one more novena for this year. I totally bombed out on the 39th. I tried but just couldn't get in sync to keep up with it. Sorry for that and I promise to do better on the next one. emoticon

KNAUGHT61, today is the final day until the next 54 day Novena. I'm sure you can get feedback about prayers or Novenas from our Leaders. They are wonderful at that.

Nothing Is Impossible with God.
Each Day Is A New Beginning.
When You Draw Close To God, God Will Draw Close To You.

Spark People Team Leader, GLITTERGIRL, from Team, "I Can't Do This On My Own", helped me reach my goal in 2012. I was able to maintain my weight for several months, but now I have to get serious again as much of my hard work I let go of, putting my focus on another issue. I will keep on, until I get back to my goal.

Hi everyone,
Just wondering if there are any special prayers to be said to mark the end of the Novena, since it is almost over. Thanks!

I am persevering and have not missed any more days besides one the first week. This is such a great opportunity. Could someone tell me when it is "Day 27" (or 28?) when we switch to thanksgiving for the intentions? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the encouragement CATHOLICCORGI, this is my first Novena of any kind so I'm a real newbie. But it is a valuable experience and I love offering the intentions to Our Lady and Our Lord.

KNAUGHT61, just say your Rosary as you're doing... it's that act of saying a Rosary every day that is important... for the 54 days. I've not been able to post my daily list, either. But I have said my Rosary every day. I have a little chart I keep in my prayer book that tells me which Rosary mystery I am to say on which day. I check it off as I go along. Today is the Luminous Mystery, according to our list. I think Our Lady is pleased that we say the prayers daily, not so much what order we say them in! It helps us to be more "together" in our praying if we are saying the same Mystery. We honor Our Mother and Our Lord whatever we say...

Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly!

Oh dear, I have been praying with you all and only missed one day, but didn't know I was supposed to post which Mysteries I did each day, and I have no idea. I use an "Interactive Rosary" on an app on my phone and it picks the Mysteries for the day, and I didn't keep track. I think yesterday was "Glorious". This Novena is a wonderful opportunity to grow deeper in prayer with the Rosary and I am grateful to the organizers.

Since we began this 39th Rosary Novena, I had tried to get an answer if this Novena was going to be posted daily. I wanted to begin but saw nothing until now. Thank you, CJ! I'm glad you remembered. I know you Ladies are busy with jobs and Families. I'm happy to see it is happening now, so here I begin.

We hope you will join us as we lift our Prayers of Petition and Thanksgiving from August 15, The Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady, through October 7, 2015...The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.

We will begin our Novena on Saturday, August 15, 2015...

Please list your petitions on the 39th Novena Petitions Thread.

Feel free to copy the following Prayers to help you as you pray your Novena.

PRAYERS FOR THE 54 DAY NOVENA

The prayers that we say at the beginning and end of the rosary:

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

First 27 Days of the 54-Day Rosary Novena, August 15, 2015 - September 10, 2015 (Novena of Petition)

Our dearest Mother Mary, behold us, your children at Catholic Critters of SparkPeople, in prayer at your feet. Accept this Holy Rosary, which we offer you in accordance with your requests at Fatima, as proof of our tender love for you, for the intentions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in atonement for the offenses committed against your Immaculate Heart, and for these special favours which we earnestly request in our Rosary Novena (Mention our intentions):

Second 27 Days of 54-Day Rosary Novena, September 11, 2015 - October 7, 2015 (Novena of Thanksgiving):

Dear Jesus, through the intercession of our Blessed Mother, the Virgin Mary, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, enter our hearts as we meditate on the mysteries of your life in thanksgiving for the granting of Catholic Critters' prayer requests, some of which has been answered, some of which are still awaiting your plan... (mention our intentions)


Blessed Mother, we beg you to present our petitions (prayers of thanksgiving) to your Divine Son. If you will pray for us, we cannot be refused. We know, dearest Mother, that you want us to seek God's Holy Will concerning our requests. If what we ask for should not be granted, pray that we may receive that which will be of greater benefit to our soul.

We offer you this spiritual bouquet of Roses because we love you. We put all our confidence in you, since your prayers before God are most powerful. For the greater glory of God and for the sake of Jesus, your loving Son, hear and grant our prayers. Sweet Heart of Mary, be our salvation.

Here we pray the mystery of the day:
Day 01 = 15 August = Joyful Mystery
Day 02 =16 August = Luminous Mystery
Day 03 = 17 August = Sorrowful Mystery
Day 04 = 18 August = Glorious Mystery
...repeat the sequence J-L-S-G...

After the Rosary:

Hail Holy Queen...

Let us pray,
O God, whose only Begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation. Grant, we beseech thee, that meditating upon the mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise through the same Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

The MEMORARE
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, we fly unto thee O Virgin of virgins, our mother, to thee we come, before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us at Catholic Critters. Amen.


The Magnificat (The Divine Office)
My soul glorifies the Lord,
My spirit rejoices in God, my Saviour.
He looks forth on His servant in her lowliness;
Henceforth, all ages will call me blessed.
The Almighty works marvels for me.
Holy His Name!
His mercy is from age to age,
On those who fear Him.
He puts forth His arm in strength
And scatters the proud-hearted.
He casts the mighty from their thrones and raises the lowly.
He fills the starving with good things, sends the rich away empty.
He protects Israel, His servant,
Remembering His mercy,
The mercy promised to our fathers,
To Abraham and his descendants for ever.


We can also add the Litany of The Blessed Virgin Mary, if we wish.

Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly!
Nothing tastes as good as living with less pain feels!
