May Thy Pierced Hands and Feet lead us to All Good.  Oh Dearest Lord, place us and hide us in Thy Five Most Holy Wounds!  Forget not our poor souls for which Thou didst so agonizingly trembled on the stem of the Holy Cross!  For the sake of all the Martyrdom Thou didst suffer, reconcile us with Thy Divine Justice!  May Thy Most Holy and Bitter Death protect us, and lead us to Eternal Salvation! May Thy Most Blessed Power and Divine Omnipotence drive away and keep away from us every evil of body and soul! May Thy Most Holy Wounds, Dearest Jesus, bless and protect us in our death agony from all power of the infernal enemy!  At the hour of our death, may Thy Most Precious Blood erase all our sins before our Beloved Heavenly Father, and let die in us all inclination to sin!  May Thy Most Precious Blood lead us to all Angels and Saints!  We commend and place all our suffering friends and enemies and all deceased persons to and into Thy most Loyal Redeemer’s Heart!  Oh, Dearest Jesus, give to us all Thine Infinite Merits, the Power and the Blessing of Thy Most Bitter Passion and Death! Oh, Eternal Divinity, Oh, True Humanity of Jesus, Oh, Most Blessed Trinity, protect us now, according to Thy Divine desire and forever!

O GOD, Who for the redemption of the world didst vouchsafe to be born among men, rejected by the Jews, betrayed with a kiss by the traitor Judas, bound with cords, to be led as an innocent lamb to the slaughter, to be treated with indignity, accused by false witnesses, afflicted with scourges and reproaches, to be spit upon, crowned with thorns, beaten with blows, struck with a reed, to have Your face veiled, to be stripped of Your garments, to be nailed to the cross and raised high thereon, to be ranked among thieves, to be offered gall and vinegar to drink, and to be pierced with a lance.

O LORD, by these Your most holy pains, which I, though unworthy, now call to mind, and by Your Holy cross

and death, deliver us from the pains of hell and take us where You took the good thief who was crucified with You, Who with The Father and The Holy Ghost, livest and reignest forever and ever. Amen.

9. Prayers before The Rosary


     O Queen of the most holy rosary, Thou hast deigned to come to Fatima to reveal to the three shepherd children the treasures of grace hidden in the rosary.  Inspire our hearts with a sincere love for this devotion, that by meditating upon the mysteries of our redemption which are recalled in it, we may be enriched.  With its fruits, obtain peace for the world, the conversion of sinners and of Russia, (the remission of the temporal punishment of the poor souls in Purgatory, the triumph of Your Son’s church over the gates of hell) and the favor which we ask of you in this rosary.  (MAKE YOUR REQUEST.)  We ask it for the greater glory of God, for your own honor, and for the good of souls, including our own.  Amen.


     WE UNITE ourselves with all the Saints in heaven, and with all the just on earth; we unite ourselves with Thee, Our Jesus, in order to praise Your holy Mother worthily and to praise You in her and by her.  We renounce all the distractions that may have during this rosary which we wish to say with modesty, attention and devotion just as if it were to be the last one of our lives.    Amen.

     WE OFFER to Thee, O Most Holy Trinity this creed – in honor of the mysteries of our faith; this Our Father and these three Hail Marys – in honor of the Unity of Thy Essence and the Trinity of Thy Persons.

     WE ASK of Thee a lively faith, a firm hope and an ardent charity.  Amen.

 10.  The Proper of The Most Holy Rosary


     I BELIEVE in God, the Father the Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ His Only Son, Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Blessed Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.  He descended into hell, the third day He arose again from the dead.  He ascended into heaven and sitteth at the right hand of God, The Father Almighty.  From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in The Holy Ghost, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.  Amen. 


     Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be 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; and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen.     


     HAIL MARY! Full of grace! The Lord is with Thee! Blessed art Thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of Thy 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, and to The Son and to The Holy Ghost!  As it was in the beginning, now and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen.


     MY GOD, I believe, I adore, I trust and I love Thee, and I beg pardon for all those who do not believe, do not adore, do not trust and do not love Thee.

     O MY JESUS, forgive us our sins.  Save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls into heaven, especially those who most need of Thy mercy.


     O MOST SWEET Heart of Jesus, lead us unto salvation.  Grant peace to the entire world, specially the United States/Philippines/(Name Your Country).  Bring back to You all sinners and grant that they may find the path that leads to you.


     O BLESSED VIRGIN Mother protect us with your most Immaculate Heart.  Amen.


St. MICHAEL, the Archangel, defend us in battle.  Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.  May God rebuke him, we humbly pray.  And do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.

(This Section to Be Used on the SEVENTH & LAST Day)


     O Most Loving Father, the time has come for You to leave us and our dwelling which have been Your home for the past seven days.  Words are not enough to render You praise and thanksgiving for the love that You have shown us.  Our Father, You have always loved us.  You have deigned to be with us even for a short time, and this Thou has done through this novena devotion to Your Son, The Lord of Pardon.  We give Thee our heartfelt thanks through Our Lord Jesus Christ.

     Farewell, Lord Jesus and we thank Thee for the great gifts of knowledge and understanding You have given us through Your Holy Spirit: of why You died for us and what we have to do in order that Your Passion and Death will be bear the fruits that You expect.

  Farewell, O Holy Spirit and thank You for all Your gifts.  Grant us also your fruits that we may live our lives in conformance and for the pleasure of  Our Almighty God.

     Farewell, O Queen and Delight of Heaven.  We thank Thee, for all the blessings and graces you brought in to our dwelling by your constant intercession and for Your Motherly Love.

     We look forward to Your next visit, O Blessed Trinity and Our Mother.  We pray that we will again enjoy Your company soon, if not in this life, then, by Your compassion and forgiveness which You shower upon us with the Precious Blood of Your Dearly Beloved Son, may it be in Your kingdom.  Amen.


TO JESUS’ HEART                      

To Jesus’ Heart all burning

With fervent love for men 

My heart with fondest yearning 

Shall raise its joyful strain.                                                       


While ages course along                                                         

Blest be with loudest song                                                      

The Sacred Heart of Jesus 

By every heart and tongue

Too true I have forsaken

Thy love by willful sin

Yet now let me be taken

Back by Thy grace again. (Ref)




On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,                           Oh, that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,

The emblem of suff’ring and shame.                                          Has wondrous attraction for me,

And I love that old cross, where the dearest and best             For, The Dear Lamb of God left His glory above, 

For a world of lost sinners was slain     To bear it to dark Calvary  (Ref)


So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,                                      In the old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine

        Till my trophies at last I lay down.             A wondrous beauty I see.

        I will cling to the old rugged cross,            For ’twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,

        And exchange some day for a crown.                                        To pardon and sanctify me. (Ref)
