Day 2 Novena to Our Lady Help of Christians
Sincere humility: Luke 1: 48
O Mary most holy, kind and merciful mother, with your visible help you freed the Christian people from the ferocious assaults of the Muslims. Free our souls from the attacks of the devil, the world, and the flesh, so that we may always overcome the enemies of our salvation.
Recite the Hail Mary and Glory be to the Father
Almighty and merciful Lord, in a marvelous manner you deigned to make the most holy Virgin Mary a powerful helper in defense of Christians. Grant that, having fought the good fight under her protection during our life, we may be victorious over our infernal enemy at the hour of our death. We make this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.
This novena was supplied by Salesian Father J. Sesto of the Marian Shrine in Stony Point, NY
