Novena to the Queen of Apostles
“I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.” (Gen 3:15)
Through God’s loving foresight, Mary was placed, so to speak, on a path different from that on which all the common children of Eve, born with original sin, entered the world. The new path is that of the redeemed. The light of the cross illumined Mary’s conception, infancy and youth. Thus, she was worthy to be blessed among women.
Together let us honor Mary Immaculate, Queen of Apostles, and ask her to give Jesus, Master, Way, Truth and Life, to all of us and to all people on earth.
Reflection and Resolution
O God, You sent the Holy Spirit upon the apostles as they were united in prayer with Mary, the Mother of Jesus. May the Queen of Apostles, the same Mother of us all, help us to serve Your majesty faithfully, and to spread the glory of Your name by word and example. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
(Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be)
Our Father who art in heaven hallowed by thy name. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Leads us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen
Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed is thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of the womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen
Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be. Amen
Queen of Apostles, pray for us.
