Novena for the Assumption of Mary - Day 7

O Mary, Mother of God, we can only faintly imagine with what tenderness the Eternal Father received and embraced you, His most beloved daughter, the Mother of His Divine Son, and the Immaculate Bride of the Holy Spirit. The Father crowned you by making you a sharer in His power; the Son crowned you by making you a partaker of His wisdom; the Holy Spirit crowned you by making you a partake of His boundless love.  The three Divine Persons declared you Queen of Heaven and Earth, and assigned you a place at the right hand of Jesus.  You received from the Adorable Trinity the crown and scepter which made you Queen of Angels and Saints, and the all-powerful Mediatrix of graces with your Divine Son, our God and Savior.  Jesus made you the treasurer of all the graces He won for us by His death on the cross.  You are the channel through which He dispenses His gifts upon earth.

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.
