O Mary, Mother of God, you reign in splendor for all eternity with your Divine Son, Jesus.  You reign on a throne of tenderness, mercy and pardon.  All your trials and sufferings are now transformed into glory.  In God, there are no disappointments, no false promises.  Eternity is real.  Heaven is an eternal joy which eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the human heart what God has prepared for those who love Him and are faithful to Him in the testings of life.  Your Assumption is a sign of hope for us who still walk our pilgrim way on earth.  You who are the Queen of Martyrs, the Mother of Sorrows, are now crowned with everlasting joy because you suffered with Christ on earth.  Help us the use well the sufferings that come our way, and to keep our eyes on our eternal inheritance.

O Mary, assumed into heaven, pray for us who have recourse to thee!

O Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God and Mother of men, we believe with all the fervor of our faith in your triumphal Assumption into Heaven, body and soul, where you are acclaimed as Queen by all the choirs of angels, and the countless multitude of saints. We unite with them in thanking and praising God who has exalted you above all the heavenly hosts. 

In your mercy, dearest Mother, look down upon our miseries and our sorrows, upon our struggles and our weaknesses. Help us to remain pure in mind and body, to bear the crosses of life, and to live and die in close union with your Divine Son. Intercede with Him on our behalf, and obtain the graces and favors we ask in this Novena (here mention your requests). 

O Mary conceived without sin,
Pray for us who have recourse to thee.
