Perpetual Help Novena/Novena a Perpetuo Socorro: Day 1

Send your prayer intentions.

“Ponder anew what the Almighty can do” is what we sing as we give “Praise to the Lord.” When you heard the angel’s greetings, you wondered what this could mean for you … and how! One reaction might have been to stress out or another to run away or even to consider an unhealthy distraction, but scripture tells us that you “pondered” in your heart. Help me, Mother, to take time to ponder. I react, kick back, and talk back. Teach me to ponder where God is in my life right now, especially the dark places.
Hail Mary …
¡Oh Madre del Perpetuo Socorro — esos tus ojos! Me miran fijamente. No quiero dejar de mirarlos. Aunque sepan todo de mi no me molestan. No, todo lo contrario, me animan.
Dame la gracia de mirarte siempre a los ojos, especialmente cuando estoy desalentado y tentado. Estoy seguro que tú nunca te avergüenzas de mí.

Dios te salve, María …
