Mary TV Daily Reflection 8/7/2014

Dear Family of Mary!

We began a novena yesterday, but I forgot to send out Day 1 for yesterday. So I will include Day 1 and Day 2 in this reflection. We are praying a Novena of Thanksgiving to Our Lady in honor of her Assumption on August 15. Last year we ended our 33 day consecration on August 15. So we can renew our consecration this year as well. This is exciting!

Novena in Thanksgiving to Our Lady in honor of her Assumption:

Lord Jesus Christ, You have destroyed the power of death and given the hope of eternal life in body and soul. You granted your Mother a special place in your glory, and did not allow decay to touch her body. As we rejoice in the Assumption of Mary, give to us a renewed confidence in the victory of life over death. You live and reign forever and ever. Amen.

"Dear children! Today I invite you to accept with seriousness and to live the messages which I am giving you. I am with you and I desire, dear children, that each one of you be ever closer to my heart. Therefore, little children, pray and seek the will of God in your everyday life. I desire that each one of you discover the way of holiness and grow in it until eternity. I will pray for you and intercede for you before God that you understand the greatness of this gift which God is giving me that I can be with you. Thank you for having responded to my call." (April 25, 1990)
Day 1
Immaculate Virgin, Mother of Jesus and our Mother, we believe in your triumphant assumption into heaven where the angels and saints acclaim you as Queen of Heaven and earth. We join them in praising you and bless the Lord who raised you above all creatures. With them we honor you. We are confident that you watch over our daily lives and we ask that you intercede for us now.
(mention your request)
We are comforted by our faith in the coming Resurrection and we look to you for prayers and comfort.  After this earthly life, show us Jesus, the blest fruit of your womb, O kind, O loving, O sweet virgin Mary. O Queen Assumed into Heaven, pray for us. Amen.  

Day 2
Mary, Assumed into Heaven, we venerate you as the Queen of Heaven and earth. As you tasted the bitterness of pain and sorrow with your Son on earth, you now enjoy eternal bliss with Him in Heaven.  Loving Queen, intercede for us in our needs.  
(mention your request)
We praise Jesus for giving us such a loving mother. O Queen Assumed into Heaven, pray for us. Amen.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
