Novena to the Immaculate Conception – Nov. 29 – Dec. 7

Novena to the Immaculate Conception

Novena to the Immaculate Conception

It is customary to pray a Novena to the Immaculate Conception starting on November 29 and ending on December 7, the Vigil of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

Let us pray through the Intercession of the Servant of God Luisa Piccareta to receive the Graces of December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

FIAT!

Say once a day for nine days, starting on November 29 and ending on December 7

Immaculate Virgin! Mary, conceived without sin! Remember, Thou wert miraculously preserved from even the shadow of sin, because Thou wert destined to become not only the Mother of God, but also the Mother, the Refuge, and the Advocate of man; penetrated therefore, with the most lively confidence in Thy never-failing intercession, we most humbly implore Thee to look with favor upon the intentions of this Novena, and to obtain for us the graces and the favors we request. Thou knowest, O Mary, how often our hearts are the sanctuaries of God, Who abhors iniquity. Obtain for us, then, that Angelic Purity which was Thy favorite Virtue, that Purity of heart which will attach us to God alone, and that purity of intention which will consecrate every thought, word, and action to His greater Glory. Obtain also for us a constant spirit of prayer and self-denial, that we many recover by penance that innocence which we have lost by sin, and at length attain safety to that Blessed Abode of the Saints, where nothing defiled can enter. 

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee. 

V. Thou are all fair, O Mary.
R. Thou art all fair, O Mary. 
V. And the original stain is not in Thee. 
R. And the original stain is not in Thee.
V. Thou art the glory of Jerusalem.
R. Thou art the joy of Israel 
V. Thou art the honor of our people.
R. Thou art the advocate of sinners.
V. O Mary.
R. O Mary.
V. Virgin, most prudent.
R. Mother, most tender.
V. Pray for us.
R. Intercede for us with Jesus our Lord.
V. In thy conception, Holy Virgin, thou wast Immaculate.
R. Pray for us to the Father Whose Son thou didst bring forth.
V. O Lady! aid my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.

Let us pray

Holy Mary, Queen of Heaven, Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and Mistress of the world, who forsakest no one, and despisest no one, look upon me, O Lady! with an eye of pity, and entreat for me of Thy Beloved Son the forgiveness of all my sins; that, as I now celebrate, with devout affection, Thy Holy and Immaculate Conception, so, hereafter I may receive the prize of Eternal Blessedness, by the Grace of Him Whom Thou, in Virginity, didst bring forth, Jesus Christ Our Lord: Who, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, Liveth and Reigneth, in Perfect Trinity, God, world without end. Amen.

27th Year since Jesus Chose the Chapel of the Assoc. Luisa Piccarreta as His Permanent Dwelling

NOVEMBER 30, 1989 – 2016

TWENTY-SEVENTH YEAR SINCE JESUS IN THE BLESSED SACRAMENT, CHOSE THE CHAPEL OF THE ASSOCIATION LUISA PICCARRETA AS HIS PERMANENT DWELLING.

11/30/2016

Some dates to remember, raising praise to God for the great gift that He has given to the Association:

November 30, 1989, feast of St. Andrew the Apostle, Archbishop Mons. Giuseppe Carafa, at 6:00 p.m., for the first time celebrated the Holy Mass in the chapel of the Association. It was not yet restored, but it was equipped with everything, starting from the altar down to the smallest detail to make perfect and solemn the divine moment.

It was a time of great emotion. As Jesus chose a shed to come to daylight, so He chose a small and poor abode to spread the truths of the Divine Will.

Finally, after the Mass, there was the permanent reposition of the Blessed Sacrament in the Tabernacle. In that occasion, His Excellency, addressing the faithful, said:

 “Now I leave you in good hands. Listen to Him and love Him as Luisa did. Now in this house there are two altars:  one on which the Eucharist is celebrated , the other is the bed of Luisa, on which she consumed her life, only  for God”.

The participation in the Holy Eucharist was quiet and full of faith despite the narrowness of the place.

There was a large participation including the civil and religious authorities, such as the vicar of the place, Don Luca Masciavè, and other priests.

Twenty-seven years later, the Association Luisa Piccarreta remembers that day with a day of prayer and Eucharistic adoration with praise and thanksgiving to the Lord.

Since that day, many hours of spirituality and Eucharistic days follow one another to feed the Eucharistic life that is the basis of the Christian life.

The chapel of the Association Luisa Piccarreta is the divine roof of the room where the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta lived and is the first stage for the pilgrims who come from all over the world and for hours of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.

Here is the homily of His Exc. Mgr. Charter during the Eucharistic Celebration:

“This little chapel, with the presence of Eucharist Jesus, of the Holy Immaculate Virgin, of Luisa “the Saint”, with all the sacred furnishings today becomes the heart of your beloved Association” Luisa Piccarreta “.

It’s the heart because there is Eucharistic Jesus, but upstairs   there is another church, another altar that is the bed on which the image of Luisa is placed.

It is the whole house now that has become a church, and the whole house has become an altar.

And, so, this is the strength that should support you, that should to encourage you to continue. Of course, the difficulties will not fail, there will always be the difficulties because we are on earth, but the Lord has to win …

Truly this chapel will be for you as Mount Zion, as Tabor, where the Lord is always there to give you consolations and graces …

But the most holy chapel that we want to remember tonight is Luisa’s  beatification. It will be the true Church. This is a beginning, a premise, a wish and as you have prepared so far and have conquered and overcome many obstacles, so the Lord will give you the grace to see the realization of the other Church, that is Luisa’s beatification and in her name I give to you, now, the holy blessing …

Now I want to tell you some memories that were within me, and now I see them in the unified plan of God.

I was 18-19 years old, around 1933-1934 ,  in  the Seminary of Molfetta, where I remained for thirty-five years. I had as prefect of the dormitory Don Ciccio Tattoli (Founder and parish priest of the Church Sacra Famiglia in Corato,) and as spiritual director Msgr. Luigi Doria (he later became Vicar General of the Diocese of Trani and Rector of the Mother Church in Corato) who not only in external forms but also in the private and personal conversations spoke of Luisa, as a privileged victim soul

I knew well Don Michele Marcone, Don Luigi Mintrone who were older than me, but we were always together.

But what I remember correctly were the inspired words of Msgr. Doria who remembered Luisa, he evidently had contact with her.

So here is the plan of God who sows, sows, the years pass and then His plans are realized

Certainly, they too will be, together with her, in Heaven because they have done so much good not only to me but to all seminarians who, then, were  four hundred in Molfetta. These ones , then, have become priests and wherever they are in Puglia, they know that there is Corato, that there is Luisa, they entrust  her, praying for her beatification. “

Sr. Assunta
