NINE DAYS NOVENA TO THE LADY OF ALL NATIONS

OUR LADY OF ALL NATIONS

 

NINE DAYS NOVENA TO THE LADY OF ALL NATIONS

 

The Lady of All Nations

 

Lord Jesus Christ,

Son of the Father,

send now Your Spirit over the earth.

Let the Holy Spirit live

in the hearts of all Nations

that they may be preserved

from degeneration, disaster and war.

May the Lady of All Nations,

who once was Mary,

be our Advocate.

Amen.

 

THE LADY OF ALL NATIONS

From 1945 until 1959, Mary appeared 60 times to the visionary Ida Peerdeman in Amsterdam. On November 16, 1950, she introduced herself under her new title: “I am the Lady – Mary – Mother of All Nations.” She also requests the last Marian dogma, which contains a threefold truth: “it is the wish of the Father and the Son to send me into the world in these times as the Coredemptrix , Mediatrix and Advocate.” “When the dogma. . ., has been proclaimed, The LADY OF ALL NATIONS will give, peace, true peace to the world.”

The short yet very powerful prayer written on the inside front cover of this Novena was dedicated to the visionary by Mary. It is through this prayer that the dogma shall be proclaimed. Our LADY said that she was “sent by her Lord and Creator, so that, by means of this prayer that the dogma and this title, She may save the world from a universal calamity.”

She gives this prayer to the visionary and appears standing on the globe before the luminous cross of her Son’s Redemption. Gathered around her is the flock of Christ upon which are shinning three rays of Grace, Redemption and Peace emitting from the hands of the Mediatrix of All Graces.

On Nov. 15, 1951, the Mother of GOD expressly directed the visionary: “Tell everyone to spread the prayer card in ever greater numbers in the world.” Mary expressly calls this spreading of her prayer with her picture an action of redemption and peace: “Go and with great ardour and zeal, set about this work of redemption and peace and you will see the miracle.” She promises help and protection to everyone who says this prayer everyday and help spread her prayer and picture.

 

In the name of the Father. . .

“O Almighty Eternal God Our Father, look upon the face of Your Son, and for love of Him who is the Eternal High Priest, have pity on your PRIESTS. Remember, O most compassionate God that they are but weak and frail human beings. Stir up in them grace of their vocation which is in them by the imposition of the Bishop’s hands. Keep them ever close to You, lest the enemy prevail them, so that they may never do anything in the slightest degree unworthy of their sublime vocation.

 

O Jesus, Our Eternal High Priest, I pray for Your faithful and fervent PRIESTS; for Your unfaithful and tepid PREIST laboring at home, or abroad in distant mission fields; for Your tempted PRIESTS; for Your dying PRIESTS; and for the soul of Your PRIESTS in Purgatory.

 

But above all, I commend to You the PRIEST dearest to me; the PRIEST who baptized ne; the PRIESTS who absolved me from my sins; the PRIESTS at whose Masses I assist; the PRIESTS who gave me Your Body and Blood in Holy Communion; the PRIESTS who helped and encourages me to accept You as my Lord and Saviour; and all PRIESTS whom You sent to touch my life and those of my loved ones.”

Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. . . Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. (Jn. 6:53-54.56)

Unfailing Prayer to St. Anthony

Unfailing Prayer to St. Anthony


O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints, Your love for God and Charity for His creatures, made you worthy, when on earth, to posses miraculous powers. Miracles waited on your word, which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this thought, I implore of you to obtain for me (make your request). The answer to my prayer may require a miracle, even so, you are the Saint of Miracles.

O gentle and loving St. Anthony, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the ears of the Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved to be folded in your arms; and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours.

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;Courage to change the things I can; andWisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;Enjoying one moment at a time;Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;That I may be reasonably happy in this lifeand supremely happy with Him forever in the next. Amen.

Reinhold Niebuhr
