The Annunciation Novena
I greet you, Ever-blessed Virgin, Mother of God,
Throne of Grace, miracle of Almighty Power!
I greet you, Sanctuary of the Most Holy Trinity
and Queen of the Universe,
Mother of Mercy and refuge of sinners!
Most loving Mother, attracted by your beauty
and sweetness, and by your tender compassion,
I confidently turn to you, miserable as I am,
and beg of you to obtain for me from
your dear Son the favor I request in this novena:
For the consecration of Russia and Ukraine
to your Immaculate Heart
Obtain for me also, Queen of heaven,
the most lively contrition for my many sins
and the grace to imitate closely
those virtues which you practiced so faithfully,
especially humility, purity, and obedience.
Above all, I beg you to be
my Mother and Protectress,
to receive me into the number
of your devoted children,
and to guide me
from your high throne of glory.
Do not reject my petitions, Mother of Mercy!
Have pity on me, and do not abandon me
during life or at the moment of my death.
