Novena for the Assumption of Mary - Day 9


O Mary, Mother of God, your assumption into heaven gives us hope and inspires us to grow in God’s grace, to be receptive to His will, to convert our lives through prayer and penance, and to seek everlasting union with the Trinity in our heavenly Kingdom.  The Church teaches that in you, O Mary, we see ourselves answering the invitation of our heavenly Bridegroom.  You are like the Morning Star shining in the dark place of our journey of faith, until the first streaks of light appear and we see the Lord coming to take us to heaven that we might be with Him where He is, in the bosom of the Father.

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