Novena to Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima
Immaculate Heart of Mary, my Mother, I come to you this day as a little child in prayer. I beg to make this offering of my heart as simple and childlike as I can. The three little ones of Fatima have taught us what pleases your maternal heart. I earnestly desire that all the people of the world be brought back to a humble knowledge and love of the Sacred Heart of your dear Son. I pray, dear Mother of my God that the indescribable beauty and the glow-white purity of your own Immaculate Heart, may so captivate our souls that we will detest all sin, and dedicate our lives to the honor and glory of the God who created us.
As much as I feel the need of many things I do not dare in this novena, Mother Mary, to ask one selfish petition for myself. You revealed the secrets of your own sad heart at Fatima and begged for the restoration of the world to God. What can I ask of greater good than to unite my heart to yours in this great yearning? What can I add but the fervent prayer that all the world may listen to your pleading?
I give my heart to you, my heavenly Queen and in utmost confidence I leave to you the choice of what is best for me in answer to my prayer of love and reparation.
As the three young children were comforted to hear from you that they would go to heaven, I now confidently implore this special favor…
Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima, I give you my heart. Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima, I put my trust entirely in you.
Immaculate Heart of the Mother of my God, we implore, through your powerful intercession, the conversion of the hearts of men, complete victory over sin, and the return of peace which you have promised.
